The demand for Digital Coupons and Vouchers are growing even faster due to the Covid-19 lockdown, so the best time to start your coupon business / strategy is now.
But where to start? What to charge your clients? Let these examples be a guidance for you.

Keep in mind: Even the simplest campaign delivered by developers and creative agencies would start at a minimum of 1000 USD for a custom solution. Coupontools changes this opportunity dramatically by reducing the time and development costs associated with Coupon & Voucher designs.
We can only give you examples of how other resellers are reselling our services. The exact amount which your client should pay is something you have to decide for yourself.
It depends on your country, client type, and the value you bring your client.

Monthly subscription billing
Ask for a monthly subscription for the maintenance and hosting of the campaigns.
For example, 30-100 USD per month for smaller traffic, and 100-300 USD for larger traffic.
Charge a setup fee (e.g. 200-500 USD) to set up a new campaign.

Commission-based billing
You are able to track opens, claims, and validations per campaign. Charge your client a fixed fee based on success rate.
The commission value depends on the value you offer your client.

Return on invests
We always suggest starting your calculations from your CLIENT's POINT OF VIEW
If your client has a restaurant and you bring in 100 new customers per month, with an average spent of 50$, your client generates 5000$ turnover. He will happily pay 500$ monthly for your services. Every customer wants a positive ROI (return on investment)

If your client has a webshop and he sell products of 5$ and you help him with a campaign and you bring 20 new clients who had a 1$ discount, it only results in a 100$ turnover only, minus the costs and discounts so this client cannot pay you a monthly fee of 100$.

First, estimate the value you bring your client and calculate your fees based on those results.
A client who does not have a positive ROI will stop using your services.

Note: The value you offer is not ONLY based on the amount of redemptions or generated turnover. Digital customer data for their CRM, visibility, security (single-use coupons), gamification (fun factor) are also valuable for your client!

Upsell with additional services
You can upsell combined with Coupontools additional services to your clients which bring more value for your client so you can charge more.

Examples of upselling:
- Manage email campaigns
- Manage SMS campaings
- Sell hardware (WiFi routers, beacons, NFC stickers, validation stamps, ...)
- Combine campaigns with Facebook Ads to bring clients instead of just providing a Coupon campaign.
- Build a website or app for your client to host a Coupon Directory
- Combine Coupons with traffic (Google Ads, PPC ad networks, etc)

Try to convince your clients to stay for at least 3 months period to give you enough time to optimize his campaign and adjust the strategy if needed. Also try multiple distribution methods: email campaign + SMS campaign + Social Media campaign and track the results per campaign so you understand which method works the best for them.
