Companies like walmart.com, amazon.com etc are driving most of their customers into their platforms by enticing their target audience with discount offers and coupons. It isn’t a secret anymore that offering captivating coupons or discounts is the best way to engage your customers. Providing attractive offers is almost a mandatory part of any product company’s marketing strategy to effectively attract new and existing customers.Do not confuse yourself with discount coupons and promotional codes. Know the difference.

There are various ways in which companies do this. One of the main channels is emailers. Email marketing is an essential part of any marketing strategy. But emails bring various disadvantages. The opening rate for an email is usually low. Yes, we can crack the perfect subject lines, personalise the mail etc. but that still doesn’t guarantee a 100% opening rate.

Your promotion mailers going into spam is also another huge disadvantage.

A BETTER SOLUTION

If you run a WooCommerce store, you too would want to enjoy the benefits of offering discount coupons and other promotional offers to your customers. So if not email, then what? 

Your solution: App-only coupons.

App-only coupons have the potential to provide your business with the boost it deserves. With these coupons, you can target customers who have downloaded your app as well as prospective customers of your product. 

Here’s why you need to consider them. 
  • The coupons can be easily created and managed in the WooCommerce dashboard.
  • When your customers have already installed your app, the chances of them opening a push notification to the app or an in-app promotion is much higher than the opening rate for an emailer. Since the customer has already made the decision of downloading your app, we know that trust has already been established with your product. Hence the higher opening rate.
  • Your offers and discounts can be sent to a large set of customers directly via Push notifications. This evokes an immediate call to action for your offers, unlike the old fashioned mailing methods. 
  • We have the authority to announce limited period coupons to customers. 
  • We can also set a limit on product pricing. Example: Offer valid for products above $50/-

What if your target audience doesn’t have your app yet? No problem. These coupons can be promoted on various digital platforms with a call to action that directs your audience to download your app. If the coupon is attractive enough and timed correctly, you can get a lot of app downloads that will, in turn, help you grow your sales.

Make app-only coupons a part of your marketing strategy and watch your sales soar. 

Here is how you can do it.
