Amazon Demonstrates How Social Media Coupon Campaigns WORK

This Social Coupon Campaign is a perfect example of how social media and consumers can quickly be leveraged to quickly:

  • build brand awareness.
  • generate social influence online.
  • drive a ton of traffic to their website.
  • build a proprietary email list by geographic location.
  • An instant, opt-in audience to promote new offers to nationally or by city.

You be the judge:
4 hours in to the promoton, over 400,000 deals have been redeemed/purchased. Each purchase requires the connection of the purchaser’s Facebook account or creation of a LivingSocial account.
