    I have a domain name thats really good, and even has the words "coupon code" in the domain name. I was thinking of running a coupon code site like C0up0ncabin, or retaiImenot, but it looks as if it will be a 24 hour a day job to maintain the site. What would be a better way to monitize the site with little upkeep after its set up?


    Feel free to pm me if needed. Thanks.

    Affiliate Links - think about it when someone has the coupon that says "Click Here to Activate" and it brings you to the merchant page that's just an affiliate link and they make a %.

    Several options to keep the site updated:

    1. Use a coupon feed like formetocoupon or coupilia.
    2. Allow visitors to post coupons and implement a rating system.
    3. Update manually but focus on a small number of retailers.

    It depends on what kind of coupon codes you want to put on your site. Are you going to get local companies to provide coupons or ? Definitely advertising by local companies would be best if you can make it.

    I would like to keep it nationwide only and just use the feeds.
