Web Coupons Appeal to Cost-Conscious Shoppers

March 10th, 2009 | Posted by The 60 Second Communications Team in Marketing That Works

USA Today reports that internet searches that include value words such as “coupons” rose 161% in December vs. 2007 to 19.9 million and “discount” rose 26% to 7.9 million.

Sale – Bags As a result, spending by marketers on such search words is up, too. Google, which controls 60% of the paid search ad market, says ad spending on value-related words such as coupons rose 30% in the fourth quarter over the same period a year earlier.

Kraft foods added “cooking on a budget” and “value” to its search roser. Offers include $1 coupons for Kraft Macaroni & Cheese. Procter & Gamble initiated a campaign whereby a brand search for Crest Whitening Strips will yield a $7 coupon. And Unilever developed a search campaign linking coupon terms with Bertolli’s Oven Bake Meals.

As you’re executing your 2009 marketing campaign, be sure to ask yourself, “Are we highlighting the ‘value’ aspect of our product or service? Are we providing ways for prospects to get a discount? Are we tapping into the emotions of our consumer to help drive sales for our brand?”

By asking these, and other, questions, you can be sure that 2009 will be as successful as possible — given the economic challenges we’re all facing.

24 x 24 x 24 Challenge!

I have been challenged by my Sales Director to get 24 people to buy $24 worth of products in the next 24 hours. Help me become a 24 hour superstar by spending just $24 on some great products.  As always shipping is free in the continental US.

Mary Kay Inc. Offers Women Compelling Solution to Economic Downturn Through Direct Selling

DALLAS – (Business Wire) After adding up nearly 600,000 jobs lost in January 2009 alone and an all-time unemployment rate high of 7.6 percent across the United States since 1992, many Americans discover a real-life question that personally counts: “How can I make ends meet right now?” Global cosmetics leader Mary Kay Inc. provides a powerful answer for any woman who wants to be her own boss and control her own destiny – becoming a Mary Kay Independent Beauty Consultant.

Based on the global economic downturn, today represents a great time for women to have their own Mary Kay business – to earn extra money and / or begin a new or second business. The Mary Kay business success equation includes popular, quality Mary Kay® skin care and color cosmetics products; motivating rewards; powerful business tools and resources; flexible schedules and inspirational networking and support among independent sales force members. Anyone can be a Mary Kay Independent Beauty Consultant – from stay-at-home moms to Harvard MBAs and everything in between, as well as virtually all ages and ethnicities.

“Women from all backgrounds across the United States have discovered they can take their financial situation into their own hands right now, instead of worrying when they, or others in their lives, will be affected by our challenging economy,” said Yvette Franco, vice president of U.S. marketing for Mary Kay Inc. “The Mary Kay business opportunity offers women so much more than selling lipstick and our other modern products consumers need and want. Mary Kay independent sales force members can determine their own success, pace and schedule.”

Larry Chonko, the Thomas McMahon professor in business ethics at the University of Texas at Arlington, added: “Traditionally, direct selling has seen a boost during turbulent economic times. In the past, Americans have looked for an additional source of income when the economy takes a downturn, and opportunities such as having a Mary Kay business have been an attractive option for many women.”
