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.
