Now that you created your first Promotion Code, of course, you want to communicate and promote your code. There are different options in how you could do this: use the website pop-up to communicate it on your website, send out an email campaign to all your subscribers, or even tailor your code to a specific segment and email that list.
Communicate the code in the website pop-up
Go to Marketing > Campaigns
Start a new pop-up campaign
In the right bar, under "Button", choose "Apply promotion code"
Finish your pop-up settings like you normally would.
When guests click on the button in your pop-up they will be instantly redirected to the matching product to which the code applies. Did you link the Promotion Code to all your Takeaway products? Then they will be directed to your Takeaway-shop within the Formitable widget. Or did you link the code to a specific Early Bird Ticket? They will then be directed to that specific Ticket, so they can book immediately.
Is it your first time using a website pop-up? 📌 Read this article to learn how you can use the website pop-up.
Email your subscribers to promote your discount or give-away
Under Marketing > Campaigns, start a new Email Campaign like you normally would
Hover with your mouse over the blue '+' to add a new content block
Choose Promotion Codes
Select the Code you want to promote
Add an image, and adjust the title and description if necessary
When guests click on the button "Apply Promotion Code" they will be automatically directed to the product that is linked to your code. If you applied the code to, for example, all Takeaway products, guests will be directed to the Takeaway shop when they click the button. If you applied the code to a specific Takeaway product, they will be directed to that specific product in your Takeaway shop.
Tailor your Promotion Codes to a specific segment
Unique Promotion Codes based on factors such as reservation or order history play a crucial part in creating loyal guests.
Formitable allows you to send Email Campaigns to guests that...
… haven’t visited your restaurant in the last 6 months or longer
… have purchased one or more gift vouchers
… have made one or more reservations in the past
… have ordered one or more takeaways
Or a combination of the above
Let's say you want to give all guests that made one or more takeaway orders at your restaurant a complimentary cocktail if they reserve your Early Bird Ticket.
Create a new promotion code based on the factors described above.
