Starting a coupon blog is easy. You can have one up and running in just about 30 minutes. Watch these step-by-step tutorials on How To Start A Free Blog on Blogger.com or WordPress.

The next question may be which blogging platform should I choose?  Blogger or WordPress? If you're a beginner –  Blogger may be the best choice. However many bloggers (including myself) recommend WordPress because of all the features and the ability to customize your site's appearance.

The next step is choosing your domain name. If you choose to go with a free domain, it will look similar to this – yourfreecouponblog (dot) blogspot (dot) com. 

You can always have a more cleaner domain name such as www(dot)yourfreecouponblog(dot)com by purchasing a domain with a reputable site like GoDaddy or Namecheap. However if you decide to use WordPress like myself, you can get a FREE domain with the purchase of hosting for only $3.95 per month. The choice is up to you!

How to Get Traffic to Your Free Coupon Blog?

Write blog posts often to provide relevant information to your audience. Make sure to promote your blog and content through social networks, SEO and other marketing channels to get more people to visit your coupon blog. Focus on building an audience who is already looking for coupons.

Here's some tools and resources I use for building traffic that I strongly recommend.



How to Make Money from Your Coupon Blog?

Starting a free coupon blog is easy but making money from it is a real challenge. Having a coupon blog can be financially lucrative. It is about building your brand and an audience who is already looking for your coupon codes if you want success with a free coupon blog. There are several ways coupon blogs make money. Here are some ways to make money from your free coupon blog:

1. Use Free Coupons

First of all, you can save money by using money saving coupons yourself. If you have a free coupon blog, you will be the first to know about the latest deals offered via the newest coupons.

2. Become an Affiliate of a Coupon Company or More

Sign up as an affiliate with a reputable coupon company such as Escalate Media and Coupons.com, or more to add their free coupons to your blog.  Find coupons that might interest your target audience, then put them on your blog.

Your coupons will look similar like these below:

Every time someone prints a coupon off your blog, you make money. You will usually get a few cents per print of a coupon but your earnings add up quickly if you get lots of people to print coupons.

3. Amazon Associates Programs

You can join the Amazon Associates Program to promote products on Amazon on your own coupon blog. When someone buys an item by clicking your affiliate link to that item, you will earn a commission.

4. Join an Affiliate Marketing Network

There are many affiliate networks. Apply with some reputable affiliate networks. If you are accepted by them, apply for affiliate marketing programs with some of their popular individual merchants in your industry. If your blog is accepted by them, you can promote their products and services on your blog. When people buy products by clicking through the affiliate links on your blog, you will earn a commission for each sale. CJ Affiliate and LinkShare are two popular affiliate networks.

5. Display Online Ads

You can join an online advertising network like Google AdSense to show coupon ads on your blog. Each time someone clicks on an ad, you will make some money. Google will show relevant ads on your blog so there are chances of getting clicks from your audience. If you have a loyal following and attract a lot of traffic, you can earn a significant amount from Google AdSense ads.

6. Sell Ad Space

This is another proven way to make money from a coupon blog. If your blog has built an audience, companies will pay you to place a link or banner ad on your blog for a monthly or yearly fee. You can have a few banner ads easily on your blog and earn a certain amount per month from each ad.

7. Sponsorship

With a successful coupon blog, you can make money by working with brands and businesses to promote their products relevant to your blog. They will give you cash, free products, and more rewards, depending on the brand and business. If your free coupon blog has a large traffic, you will be able to earn more cash payment or other rewards via sponsorship opportunities.

8. Create a Mailing List

Starting a mailing list is an effective way to get more traffic to your blog and increase your earnings. Aweber is a site I personally use that lets you  send out daily or weekly emails with the newest free coupons being added to your blog to everyone on the list.

Final Thoughts

There is a lot of money to be made from a free coupon blog if you know how to get traffic, build an audience, and various ways to monetize your blog. You must continue to write and post great content on your coupon blog to attract visitors who are already looking for free coupon codes.

      In regards to traffic, you can promote your blog on any social media platform, forums, commenting on same niche blogs, etc. I highly recommend being active on Pinterest . You’ll start to bring in viral and targeted traffic. Do you have at least 5 or more articles published on your blog?
