Do you have a WordPress blog & want to turn that into a coupon site?
Coupon websites are in huge demand these days, as more and more people are preferring online shopping. And while doing that, it is better to find out the best available deal and then buy the product.
Companies are also spending too much to promote their brand & product by offering various deals, coupons, discounts to increase their sale. In such a scenario, are you thinking to start a coupon website to make money via affiliate marketing?
But starting a new website is not at all an easy task. So, can you turn your existing wordpress site into a coupon website?
Definitely, yes. And that’s what the topic we are going to discuss in this article.
Why you Should Share Coupons in your Website, Irrespective of Niche?
As a blogger we think too much while deciding the blog niche, even we think harder while deciding the topic to write the blog post.
But one common thing is, most people who are blogging for money, some way or the other promote some product. I think this is the time when we should come upfront and share about the best deal about the product or products by creating a dedicated coupon page.
If your blog niche is from fashion, lifestyle, entertainment etc, then you are gifted. As you can start sharing any coupon by creating a page or even changing your home page something like of retailmenot.com.
Is it Really Possible to a turn your WordPress Blog into a Coupon Site
Yes, this is absolutely possible. But with lots of limitation offcourse.
If you want to start a new website to share coupons & discounts then it would be nice to buy a premium worpdress coupon theme and then start your coupon website.
For people who are running their wordpress blog from quite a sometime, it will not be a good idea to migrate your theme to a coupon theme. You can do it if you are ready to spend some money for migration & redesigning.
But for others, I think creating a dedicated page is more than enough. In fact, there are couple of WordPress plugins for coupon sites with which we can create a site almost similar to a coupon site.
Steps to Turn Your WordPress Blog into a Coupon Site
Before proceeding, I would like to divide this assignment in 2 parts.
1) For a website who will promote only few specific products
2) For a website who will promote many brands and also update daily
For the first criteria, niche based websites will come into picture. E.g. our website where we are writing mostly about WordPress themes, Hosting and online marketing tools. And we will share the products we are using in our everyday life blogging or used earlier.
In that case we would love to create a dedicated coupon page where we will put selected coupons for our readers, so that they can utilize them and save money.
For the second criteria, most multi-niche websites come into picture. Those websites may cover various niche and has the flexibility to share coupon & deals of multiple merchandisers. For those websites, it would be a good idea to make the home page like a coupon store and then write content in the blog section.
