Coupons are the new punk rock.

Well, maybe that's a bit dramatic. 

But one thing is certain: whether they're hurting financially or not, people love a good deal.

2016 Coupon Statistics

Posted by Brandon Carter on Dec 9, 2016 8:00:00 AM

Few business techniques are as consistently effective as the venerable coupon. Love them or hate them, NO ONE can deny that a coupon can draw a crowd to a business.

And it isn't just the needy - research shows that rich folks are some of the most avid couponers around. And it isn't just older folks, as the advent of mobile coupons and a sketchy economy have conspired to create a new generation of frugalistas in Millennials. Used intelligently, coupons can acquire and retain (yes, retain) a ton of business for any company. 

To help you keep up with the latest research and data around the influence of coupons, we've created this collection of the freshest, newest coupon statistics. These stats are only those that have been released in 2016.

How Online and B2B Businesses Can Get on the Local Spending Bandwagon

Posted by Brandon Carter on Nov 22, 2016 8:44:00 AM

As it turns out, marketing hype folks are onto something with this idea of "hyperlocal."

After all, we just published research that shows consumers are staying very local to make their routine purchases.

And the more frequent the purchase, the less they're willing to travel. It's why there's a Starbucks or McDonald's on seemingly every block.

Ecommerce is shooting up, but still accounts for around 8% of all spending.

So, hyperlocal is the word.

If you operate a brick-and-mortar business, your blueprint is set. Draw a 20 minute radius around your location, and build your operation around those local consumers. Do what you need to do to bring them in and become part of their routine.

Super easy!

But…

What does this mean if you operate an online business?

Or a B2B business?

How can you take advantage of this hyperlocal bandwagon consumers are on? 

It's not easy, but it is possible.
