Email marketing is the default of any business. In my opinion, it's hard to stand out because of the overload of emails customers receive when approaching a relevant holiday like the 4th of July. Hard but not impossible. You need to offer value as soon as they receive your mail. Look for a catchy but also tempting subject line. Being read is the first step. Next, embed an appealing, neat, and valuable coupon to your email. A game coupon is a great way to stimulate interaction with the recipient. Because let's be honest, who isn't triggered by a little game?
The social media channels are a must-leverage channel for every promotion you launch. It has multiple approaches. Primary, you first launch your promotion on your company's social media page, sponsored or organic. But another great approach is to allow people to share your digital coupons on their social media profiles. This way, your campaigns generate free exposure, and it gains more convincing power. Convincing power? Yes, if someone notices that their friends share something on their profile, it radiates trust from someone they know.
Since every business has a website these days, you should leverage it as well. Display your deals on your website and provide some additional guidelines. It's also nice to refer to a webpage for more information when distributing your campaigns via SMS or Email.
- Coupon directory
A Coupon Directory is a must-considered distribution method if launching multiple deals at the same time. It's capable of holding various deals and can be completely rebranded. It's very convenient for the end-user and the merchant to rapidly add or delete deals to it. Another major advantage is that businesses only need to communicate one catalog that holds are their deals instead of promoting all deals separately.
