Top Deals Site CouponMountain.com Gives Online Coupons a Makeover
MONROVIA, Calif. --(Business Wire)--
Reinforcing its commitment to consumers, CouponMountain.com,
a ValueClick Brand (NASDAQ: VCLK), has revamped its look and feel to
help bargain-hunters find deals with improved ease and
efficiency. Reaching an audience of millions of shoppers each month, the
leading coupon website has positioned its new design to simplify and
streamline how people search for offers and promotions from thousands of
Coupons as a dynamic consumer landscape
"The world of online coupons has changed dramatically since 2001 when we
first launched CouponMountain.com," says Daniel Washburn, VP North
America for ValueClick Brands. "More than ever before, consumers have
access to a range of options to help them save. Beyond just sharing the
best offers and savings opportunities, deals websites need to empower
consumers with the resources to consistently save money as part of their
normal shopping routines."
After conducting in-depth consumer insights research, CouponMountain's
leadership team realized that people wanted a dependable and
straightforward solution for savings opportunities.
"Looking beyond our company's data, we launched right into fundamental
questions of how people search for deals, what they find frustrating,
and what they value," said Steve Neufer, president of ValueClick Brands.
"At the end of the day, we found that people really value simplicity and
organization. More so than bells and whistles, people want a trustworthy
tool that's dependable, straightforward, and results-oriented. That is
why we rebuilt CouponMountain to set new precedents for those values."
Self-examination is essential for building a top consumer tool
According to CouponMountain's user insights expert Ritika Puri, thorough
and critical self-examination is essential for creating a strong
consumer value proposition.
"Happy users are invaluable to CouponMountain. As a consumer-facing
business, it's important that we look beyond our own judgments to create
a product that people genuinely like," Puri says. "Throughout our
research, we prioritized our users' perspectives over our own - they had
the final say in what we needed to change. This process isn't always
easy but it's immensely rewarding for building a robust tool that
customers can enjoy."
Ideas translated into features
Faced with a range of tips and suggestions for new features,
CouponMountain's leadership team handpicked elements that fit strongly
with their visitors' most important needs.
"People have limited time to search for coupons while shopping online.
They want that information, but they don't want to wade through troughs
of expired deals and unneeded noise," Washburn says. "They should be
able to quickly sort through deals to find what they need most."
Washburn adds that the solution has to be something more visually
friendly than ordinary lists.
"We built our new website around these basic - but frequently overlooked
- consumer needs. We wanted to give people as many reliable coupons as
possible in an exceptionally straightforward format," said Washburn.
"CouponMountain's core value is in being 'all about the user' as well as
being the most reliable, easy-to-use, and organized coupon site out
