WHats you question?
I will say this, unless you plan on only working with a couple of merchants, plan on hire a full time staff to keep them updated. The coupon business is great, but the competition is Greater!
What i would do is find 1 merchant that has a Great coupon, and then build a site for that 1 merchant.
For an example, if its a shoe affiliate, then i would create a wordpress blog and target all keywords that relate to shoes and coupons.
Online shoes coupons
shoes discount coupon
online shoes discount
Name brand of shoe coupon

Coupon marketing is an animal in itself, and you are going to need someone to hold your hand in the beginning.
I have to say tho...
If you follow some of the advice I read after doing a search, that you will be steps ahead of the average affiliate beginner....

What Duka said: Unless you can create a coupon site with a big difference, local focus, or some long tail focus, you are going to be getting into a very competitive field. Plus there are many large merchants that are *reducing* the commissions paid to coupon sites, or restricting them completely.
So you need to do extra research and be prepared to work very hard to break into the coupon field with a new site.Deborah Carney

I would have to agree with what everybody has said about the coupon market as well. My partner and I had to learn the hard way...he is a seo specialist but we did not focus on specific market and spent a lot of time spinning our wheels unfortunately.
Take it from some of these experienced coupon affiliate marketers, get very specific about the audience you are targeting before you do anything. Good Luck!

In a way, its the way business is trending these days. You have to find your niche and work your butt off to maximize the seo.
netnow22 is right. And if you can find something that you are genuinely interested in, it will make the work that much easier - because it does take time.
Larger coupon affiliates like the ones mentioned also tend to get more exclusive coupons due to the sheer volume of sales they can refer. As a start-up, finding a niche and developing it is your best way to enter the market without getting completely lost.

I can answer your question in 10 seconds. Spend your time on any other type of site that does not just deals with coupons.

Very good idea there.
Or, build up a site targeting a very tight niche - i.e. something like teacoupons.com or sportsdrinkcoupons.com (these aren't actual sites AFAIK). Then focus on coupons for 3-4 merchants.
