Lulu Lens: Featured Idea – Customer Generated Coupons


The most popular idea in the Lulu community right now is Belinda D’Alessandro’s suggestion that we “allow Lulu creators to generate their own coupons, discount codes and gift certificates to offer their customers.” I have taken this idea to our product managers, who are eager to explore it further. We’d like to hear more — and from more of you — about the specific features and functionality you would like to see.

Please follow the link and comment on the idea, and if you like the idea be sure to click the “I like this idea” thumbs up next to it. If you have other ideas for how Lulu can improve, post it to the Ideas & Feedback section. I will be regularly highlighting ideas and making sure our product managers know which ideas are important to the community. I can’t promise that they’ll get done, but I can promise that I will do everything I can to get them promoted.

  1. I think this is a great idea. already does this and it so far works good. Because prices of POD books are inherently expensive, it’s good for authors to have the option of cutting their royalty temporarily or for a certain group of people in order to get exposure.
    Please do it.

    I love this idea I was looking for an option like that I have a few people who bhave been major supporters for my book and would love to be able to offer them a discount
    Hope you offer this feature soon

    Yes, please. I would really like to be able to give a discount code to bulk customers or resellers; the alternative is running a wholesale operation yourself, which for many of us is not practical.

  4. Seeing that we already happen to be discussing points regarding Lulu Blog » Lulu Lens: Featured Idea – Customer Generated Coupons, Use coupons as substantially as achievable. Be patient in cutting them out and going by way of them before making any purchase. Pack them together along with your grocery bag or within the vehicle so you can actually use the discount voucher at every single chance.

  5. Thanks for the fantastic information.

  6. Thanks!!

  7. Great article! Thanks for this information.

  8. I personally think it’s a great idea and it will definitely enhance customer satisfaction. Applying this idea will strengthen the relationship between the Lulu creators, their customers and the Lulu platform/site.

    Is there already an update on this (i.e. has this idea already been applied?)

  9. I want to use a discount code to spur action. When in press release, interview or email I want to give a code so they know they are buying at a special price. Is this now available on Lulu?

  10. It was a good idea, how did it eventually work out?

  11. I love this idea, thanks! great article
