    Promo codes are the best way to gain attention of any customer. People like me who are price sensitive definitely would always look out for deals online. Over the years, I did realize that companies use coupon codes as the most cost effective method to attract us.

    I always used to look for easily see for home page banner ads for discount offers. After the purchase started getting offers via email, phone, text messages, coupons at office, limited re-deemable deals.
    Then started seeing blogs about it, post on online directory site, social network, paid banner ads on 3rd party sites, video ads, shopping e-commerce sites.

    Affiliates can help market you through their network, but ensure you provide commission. Distribute the codes in a mall filled with people, at events, reward loyal customers, fans, followers on Facebook and Twitter. Your sales technique always works wonder if you give them a coupon code soon after a purchase for the next visit.
