- Create appealing mobile campaigns/Coupons
With the Coupontools platform, creating appealing digital Coupons is easy. Decide whether you want to use a normal discount coupon or a Gamified Coupon. For Gamified Coupons, you have a choice between a ‘Spin Wheel,’ a ‘Slot Machine’ or ‘Scratch and Win.’ You’re able to either choose one of the many tempting template Coupons or design a Coupon completely adjusted to your own taste and needs. Every aspect of the coupon is customizable. If you’ve chosen for the Gamified Coupons, you’re able to predetermine the winner's odds. With the Coupontools Platform, you’re able to set up an expiration date for your Coupon. If you distribute a Coupon, you’re in charge of the period it remains usable.
Digital Black Friday Coupon types:
