With Black Friday around the corner, it’s crucial to ensure your promotional strategies are watertight. In this post we’ll explore three key areas where your Black Friday promotions might be losing conversions and how you can effectively address these issues.
1. Email Communication: The First Impression
The initial contact point with potential customers is often through email. It’s essential to simplify this experience to make a powerful first impression.
A cluttered or overly complicated email can be off-putting. Remember, simplicity is key to driving your customers to your online store. But the more you simplify the shopping experience on your store, the less work your email has to do in communicating instructions on redeeming the discount code.
2. Checkout Experience: Remove Work
Your store’s checkout is a critical decision-making point for customers. A common issue arises when customers receive a discount code but struggle to understand where or how to apply it.
An effective solution is to use discount URLs to automatically apply the discount in the background. This ensures that when your customer reaches the checkout, their discount is already applied, significantly increasing conversions and improving their shopping experience.
3. Product and Collection Pages: Help at the Point of Decision Making
The final optimization point is on your product and collection pages. Technically the discount can be in checkout, but if a merchant never makes it there, that isn’t very helpful.
To counter this, Abra can help you clearly display early access deals or specific discounts on product or collection pages. This not only applies the discount automatically in the cart but also updates the price in real-time, ensuring customers see the actual cost upfront. We have seen this has been a big driver of average order value as well as merchants have more confidence while browsing.
