Creating an offer is very easy and takes less than 5 minutes!
Your first choice is to decide whether you want to reward your customers for their good deeds or if you want to support local organizations through give back offers. If you can't decide, don't worry, you are allowed to create one of each!
1. Choose how you will reward your customer
Tell your customer what you are going to give them. It could be a discount or a free gift. Optionally, you can let them know if there is a requirement like a number of volunteer hours to qualify fo the reward.
For Give Back Offers
1. Choose your Offer Type
a. Fixed Donation: a fixed amount will be donated to your customer's favourite cause. This is great for professional services, high value purchases, or memberships. Use the Offer Redemption Certificate as proof of purchase if your business uses contracts, rather than paper receipts.
b. Percent of Purchase: A percent of your customer’s purchase will be donated to their favourite cause. This is great for retail or transactional businesses.
2. Choose the Beneficiary
You can choose to allow the customer to pick any organization to support. You can also choose to give support to specific organization(s) you support. We find giving exclusive support to an organization will motivate them to share your offer with their supporters.
3. Choose the Value of your Offer
Research shows that 5% - 10%, or up to $500 are the most successful.
4. Create a Bonus Reward for Volunteers (Optional)
Consider offering a bonus reward to local volunteers by giving them a little something extra, such as a discount, free product, or add-on to their service.
For all Offers and Rewards
1. Choose the Redemption Limit
Choose how often you want to allow customers to redeem - one time only or unlimited redemptions.
2. Choose the Business Category
Select the business category of your offer so it is easier for your customers to find.
3. Choose a Start Date & Expiry Date
