www.bonus88.com • Launched on April 19, 2000 in Hong Kong • Positioned as a Direct Marketing Portal • Use coupon to establish the most valuable marketing asset – behavioral databases of enterprises and customers • Once you get hold of both supply and demand sides, it is easy for you to make money matching them • For instance, you know who sells good wine and who is willing to pay for good wine, it is easy to make money connecting them together or act as a middleman or go one step further to develop a wine trade without knowing the trade. Besides wine, there are unlimited trade categories that we can tap into.
Why Coupons • Coupons are international classic motivators • Every commercial enterprise around the world uses them -- credit card companies, retail shops, publications ... • Print coupons -- newspaper, magazine, direct mail • disadvantages -- the coupons are not to be found when you need them; they pop up from nowhere when you do not need them • e-coupons, and later mobile coupons through 3G and PDA • You can get them whenever and wherever you want them on a global basis – this could be an avenue for tourism
