Coupons.com Now on Twitter

Here’s the Twitter feed and here’s the release that went out this morning:

Consumers who use the popular Twitter micro blogging service can now stay up to date on the latest offers from Coupons.com, the leading network for digital coupons. With Coupons.com via Twitter, followers of http://twitter.com/Coupons will automatically receive new coupon offers as they become available. The tweets will include links to the printable coupons for quick printing.

Not much to say about this except it’s going to be very effective distribution and may further “mainstream” Twitter. In fact, Twitter might become the “coupons destination” (or the place to tap into multiple coupons sources) that I’ve talked about for some time.

Everyone who has deals/coupons/offers better get on Twitter.

    Wow, there are a ton of deal-pushers on Twitter already, but that account name is pure gold. Wonder if they had to buy that account from someone … I would think so.

    Why such a craze for Twitter? Does everyone really follow everyone? I see some people following 10,000 plus people, now that is not possible. How can I benefit from Twitter?

  3. Greg Sterling Says:

    Michael: that’s difficult to answer in the abstract. The craze surrounding Twitter is a little like what happened with Second Life, when everyone was adopting it as a marketing tool. That ended when publishers and others realized that it was more complicated to use SL as a marketing vehicle.

    Twitter is pretty simple and that is its saving grace.

    Michael:

    You can follow 10 people or 10,000 and make it work, depending on what your goal is.

    Let’s say you want to focus on a geographic specific group, or followers with a specific interest. Applications like TweetDeck let you slice and dice your total followers into a hyper relevant set of fans.

    Now you’re empowered to speak directly with these fans, while still broadcasting messages to the rest of your followers who may “Re-Tweet” your message and add to your fan base.

    Bottom line: social media is about conversations, not spam. If you produce and distribute relevant content it’s likely to get picked up.

    Think about what your strategy, goals, and desires are for social media. That’s the first step towards creating an effective strategy.

    signed up per your notice….hmmm….there are quite a few couponers on twitter. I got this feeling my twitter act is about to be bombarded.

  7. Greg Sterling Says:

    Twitter will be overrun by spam before long. Although the lack of a “push” capability makes it somewhat less effective for spammers than email or SEO (used to be)

    Starbucks coffee coupons === > eBay bidding Thems ain’t coupons, but something else. Why not just call them “Coupon-bidTwits” Or just forget about them, which is what I’ll do presently.
