However, instead of just lowering prices, you may wish to consider a technique that will help to promote long-term support.

By offering coupon codes, you can appeal to parents’ and students’ needs – both future and immediate. With a coupon code, you will not only encourage immediate purchases, but give online shoppers options of returning to your website in future to redeem those codes. The savings you offer will also elicit larger transactions.
