SAVINGS Help for Business Listings

Information about how to post coupons, sales, and discounts on FoundLocally.com

FoundLocally provides the ability to post any number or any combination of coupon offers, sales announcements (these are not typically considered NEWS or EVNTS items), or discounts. The business directory lets you manage the offers, modify disclaimers or limitations, set expiry dates, and even re-use or clone savings offers again to save time, timing effort, and (of course) money. Savings postings on FoundLocally can link to any page or document (even PDF versions) on YOUR WEBSITE, so you can track referrals and links using your  analytical software, and also t easily manage the sales flyers in one spot.

We have made our SavingsListings more powerful. Use the Savings tab in your listing, after you have logged in, to access these features. Customers can view & search coupons, sales, and discounts by company or by category, and can even search for keywords in the coupon text. Coupons can be printed (we have a “printable version” without our usual site information) and include all offer details & limitations plus tracking numbers & print date.

Clone Coupons to multiply your offers to other locations & Categories

Registered Contacts managing multiple locations, or “department store” type operations, can assign coupons to other locations (they all display the same coupon), and even assign multiple categories to a coupon (they show up in different parts of the web site). This way if you run a chain with (say) 10 locations, you don’t have to create, edit and manage 10 different coupons, and our visitors don’t have to wade through 10 identical offers, either. This is done with the POWER USER tab.

Savings Postings are Automatically De-Activated After Expiry Date

COUPONS ARE ASSUMED TO HAVE A 30 DAY OFFER, unless you specify otherwise. After that date, they are hidden from the public listing but not deleted, so you may edit and re-use details for future offers. Retain your Coupons for future sales events or to edit for similar offers at a later time.

We send a reminder email about a week before your Savings postings expire, so you
