Offer tips for businesses
Our team will work with you one-on-one to craft offers that are a great deal for your customers and your business. Here are some general tips to keep in mind when thinking about what kind of offers you want to create.
Offer the best deal available
Your offer should be better than any deal parents can get by going to your website. Parents shouldn't buy a deal from their K-12 parent group and then find out they could have gotten a better one.
No hidden fees
Typically, customers should be able to buy something with no additional expenditure beyond the price of the offer. For example, if a furniture-store offer is worth $50, but the cheapest thing the store sells costs $300, then there’s a hidden fee of at least $250.
For example, a magazine subscription offer shouldn’t include full-price automatic renewal. Also, the offer value shouldn't be inflated; prices listed should be the same price a regular customer would pay for the product or service.
Invite them back
Instead of offering one service at a discount, try splitting your offer. For example, if you offer half off two guitar lessons, people who buy the offer must try two lessons to get their full value. And that may be enough to convince them to sign up for more!
You may get an influx of new customers with a popular offer. There are many ways you can control the flow of customers so you can serve them all. For example, promotional value expires, new customers only, limit one per visit - and more.
If you sell goods or services, offer a discounted subscription to specific goods or products that need to be regularly purchased, like skincare products and kitchen items. It's a good way to win a new customer while ensuring follow-on purchases.
Discount entry products
Offers like examinations, dental cleanings, oil changes, 20% off 1 week of daycare, etc., can get a customer in the door and be the difference between a customer doing years of business with you vs. your competition.
Provide appointment link
Adding a link to your appointment/scheduling system in your offer can ensure that your offer sales turn into appointments.
