I want to thank everyone who submitted plans this week for the Coupon Blast program. Twenty-nine markets have indicated their intent to launch the Coupon Blast. They are:
• Asbury Park
• Battle Creek
• Des Moines
• Fond du Lac
• Green Bay
• Iowa City
• Jackson TN
• Lafayette LA
• Port Huron
If you are not on this list, we would encourage you to submit plans by next week. The relevant documents – a program worksheet and a P&L template – are on the Coupon Blast SharePoint site:http://(removed)
We will review the submitted plans and provide feedback by next week. Also coming soon are:
• More information about the planned online Deals sites
• A Coupon Blast print template
• Coupon Blast sales flyers
• A Coupon Blast sales presentation
• Other Coupon Blast marketing materials
• Information about other sites’ Coupon Blast plans
In the meantime, you should be setting up your Coupon Spotter programs, gathering local coupons in your areas to generate new sales leads.
I want to thank everyone in advance for participating in this program. I’m sure that we will learn much from your efforts. Together we can build this into a sustainable revenue-generator for our company that provides real value to your customers and our customers’ customers.
