What Makes Promotional Packages so Attractive?
Consumer psychology, of course.
A customer walks into your store and asks to buy a particular brand of perfume. And you tell her:
“Madam, this perfume comes in a promotional pack that comes with another new perfume, would you like to save money?”
Now, wouldn’t that be tempting?
This means the customer can get two items instead of one by spending a little more. Thus the same items when bought individually will cost more, this can lure the customer to buy the promo pack by dishing out some extra money.
In this article, we will look at how you can create and sell a promotional package in Candela RMS to help you give a boost to your marketing strategies.
Let’s get started.
Define Promotion Packs in Candela
It is simple. You define a promotion pack like any other product.
Go to the Product Definition screen, select line item (department)
Enter a Code for the promotion you want to create
Enter Name for the Pack
Add Promo Products
Now click Promotion tab, promotion screen will open up
Scan the products that are included in the promotion pack (remember these products can also be sold individually and their inventory exists in the system as individual products)
Enter Start and End dates to define time slot for limited-time offers
Enter Promotion Message to give an alert to the salesperson about the pack so that s/he can guide the customer.
Once all configurations are done and promotional packs are defined, you need to enter stock of the defined packs.
