Coupon Campaign - Online Help | Zoho Campaigns

Coupon Campaigns

Offering coupons is one of the best ways to increase your site traffic and boost your sales. So, how can you create a coupon- based email campaign (or A/B test campaign) where every recipient receives a unique coupon code?  
At Zoho Campaigns, users can create coupon campaign using coupon merge tags. These tags will be replaced by a unique coupon code for subscribers. In this section, we'll learn about the Coupon Campaign and how you can use it in your business. 

Why Coupon Campaigns?

  1. Confidential Access - From the subscriber's perspective, you are sending a unique coupon code which cannot be misused by others.  
  2. Authenticate Coupons - Check the authenticity of coupon by entering the coupon code in the given path and find the coupon details such as the recipient's name, expiration date, and redeem status. 
  3. Reward Loyal Customers - Sending a coupon campaign is a great way to recognize a loyal customer. Suggest that they redeem the coupon points in their account on your web site.  

Coupon Merge Tags

Coupon Merge Tags are used to generate unique coupon codes rather than sending the same coupon to all contacts. 
  1. $[CT:COUPONCODE]$ - Generates Coupon Code
  2. $[CT:EXPIRYDATE]$ - Generates Coupon Expiry Date
