Crediting Customer Accounts with Signup Offers

Are you looking for additional ways of driving people to purchase on your website?  Are you looking for a way that doesn’t give a discount to the customer every time they order?

Why not give them a one time coupon that they can use to redeem a credit on your website?

How can I use them to market my website?

You can use these in a pop up on your website to encourage people to join the site or encourage customers to purchase.

You could print coupons and include them with the flowers you deliver for the recipients to join your site

Pop Up Example

It’s easy and quick to do in your Flower Store In a Box website.

Go to the Marketing Menu and Choose Redeemable Credit Notes.

Because this can be used multiple time it’s important that you set up correctly.  Click the blue Add Automated Credit Note.

Add a redeemable Credit Note

  • Enter and ID, this is the code that the customer will enter so make it easy to use.
  • Choose the date from – to that the campaign will be active.
  • Enter an amount that the customer will have credited to their account.

OK that’s it to set it up.

Promote the Redeemable Credit

Your dashboard will show you the link that needs to be used for the customer redeem their credit IE:

Use:

To get a $100 credit to your account on our demo software.

If the customer has not already signed up they will be shown a coupon and signup screen.  When they do signup the amount will be credit to their account and can be used for their next purchase.

If the customer has already joined and logged in they will only have to enter the code in the form.

Promotion Ideas

There are a wealth of ways you can use this to promote your website and get new customer signups.

You can use this in social media post and get people to visit and join the site.

You can use a pop up with a link to the page from your site

And since it’s a one off credit it’s not like you are giving them an ongoing discount coupon to use!.

You can even do limited 1 day fire sales and offer something like $50 or even $100 off and only allow 5 people to signup (you would have to do that manually).  It’s a great and cheap way of building your mailing list!

It’s just another amazing free marketing feature for your Flower Store In a Box website!
