If you do open them, would you go to a new (or new to you) business because there is a coupon offered?
I own a small retail custom framing business and the ease of this sort of distribution appeals to me. I use coupons, but I’m not my target customer. The business is new and I need more than anything to increase awareness that we’re here. The owner of the business that was in this spot passed on over 2 years ago and people still come in, look around and blink a few times before asking for him.
Is there a dollar amount that would motivate you to chose one shop over another. It doesn’t make sense for me to offer a percent off. Would $25 off an order be enough to get you to come in? $30?
While I’m asking questions, have you had custom framing done previously? Industry statistics indicate that only a very small percentage of people do. I’m just looking for ways to focus my marketing efforts.
Thanks in advance.
