A common way to get your business operations busy and, thus, keep the business relationship marketing with your existing consumers stable is to develop marketing coupons.
The effectiveness of developing coupons or vouchers guarantees you that chances in turning prospects into customers and keeping customer advocates are above sixty percent. In fact, developing vouchers is an extremely wise investment that shares varied similarities with marketing ads such as advertisement flyers and sales promotion brochures.

A voucher consists of special offers and discounts to prospects and existing customers. The production of marketing vouchers is usually common during the welcoming of a new season, when a holiday is just around the corner, or when competitors’ new products or services penetrate its desired market segment or market niche. This kind of investment hardly affects the budget of the company. Not only that, the increase of your sphere of influence will be hasty.
The first time it was used dates back to the late 1880’s by the marketers of Coca-Cola. From then on coupons started appearing on cereals and other food products, until almost any kind of business mimicked this marketing scheme rather quickly. Considering the span of time of coupon developments, it is safe to assume that this marketing practice remains effective especially in the digital age. Aside from the physical coupon cards, marketers have introduced a new way to present your vouchers without bringing a physical card with you anymore. A lot of industries have developed mobile applications where prospects and consumers can simply download and register. Since a mobile phone is one thing that a normal human hand of today’s generation barely lets go of, developing mobile apps which cater to vouchers only offer convenience to consumers.
These voucher applications are actually more convenient than the usual coupon cards, for your company ITs can just make updates should there be new promotions or offers you want to impose– rather than producing a new set of designed voucher cards for another guerrilla marketing approach. You only need to present the code, and let a machine scan your phone before the discount is applied to the item you purchase. When new to these applications, other business generously offers introductory discounts to new consumers. From this experience, the consumer is likely to use your service again or purchase another business product even if discounts come to its date of expiration.
The discounts that are offered in vouchers are not only discounts. Others may come in cards where you are able to acquire more and more points each time you make a purchase and have these points redeemed when you have reached the desired number of points. Redemption of rewards may come in the form of a consumable amount offered by the brand to you, so by the time you make a new purchase you will not be paying the full price of the referred product. Another good example of this is acquiring a Starbucks Planner. You need to collect eighteen stickers in a span of time before the voucher no longer applies for you to avail on their planner.
