The digital coupon industry is continually growing and evolving.

Two of the main differentiators include the cost per print and if the platform is able to be distributed via social media platforms. Connect 1-1 is the only platform that has no setup or clip fees, and offers the ability to authenticate via Facebook to gather key demographic data.
