Does anyone here have experience with promoting coupon codes that are offered by your affiliate program?

My affiliate programs offer coupon codes, but what I am trying to avoid is just displaying the coupon code and having people just visit my page and seeing the coupon code and switching tabs and entering the coupon code into their order without going through one of my affiliate links.

Does anyone have any thoughts or tips on this?

Hey Huy,

What I would do is start Google searching to see if there are any forums out there discussing using coupon codes, to see if that is what is happening.

Personally, if I'm looking for a product that upon checkout suggest they may have a coupon code available, I then open another session of my browser and Google search for a coupon code for that product.

Once I locate a coupon code that works, I leave that site... so in fact that would increase their bounce rate for sure.

Hope you find this helpful.

Yeah that is how I go about coupon codes as well. I have been searching on google but haven’t found too much info on it.

The only thing that MIGHT keep your readers from simply gleaning your coupons is to NOT make it a keyword (use only once per post) and bury the code within the details of that product... let's say, within a paragraph of information.

That way, you are less likely to have scrapers taking your coupons without buying from your affiliate links... though that too may still happen.
