I finally broke down and made my first discount code for Cyber Monday/ Christmas. Is anybody else doing any holiday promotions/discounts? Any success yet?
Here's the code, 25% (I know most artists don't buy but just in case ;) )
@ Andee, I have no idea if anyone will use mine either. This is my first time using one, so I don't know what to expect. Figured it might be worth a try though. Have it posted everywhere so fingers crossed!!
@Sheena, that stinks :(. I hope they get better soon! I have been so busy at my day job lately, I haven't been very organized either. This was a last minute decision for me.
These posts about getting large amount of views and no sales are starting to depress me. Like that post about 50,000 views and no sales, and now 6,000 views and no sales. I guess audience is truly critical
I just lowered the prices on everything and sent out a notice to my Facebook followers, which number far fewer than 6,000, but a lot of them are from my home town. The discount code seemed a bit tacky to me last year when I did it. (And got no sales)
Thank you everybody for your in put!! Still nothing yet. I had just never done one before and figured the holiday season would be the time to do it, if at all.
@Edward, that's a good point, and I usually think the same way, but figured why not try something new. They have those codes on here as an option for a reason, figured it wouldn't hurt to try. Not just to get more people to buy, but to help out my loyal customers too.
@Joseph, Let me know how that pans out for you!!
@Christi, thanks for the in put!! So there is hope yet!! lol
Yep, I'm running one with the dates of November 13 - December 26, 2013. Use Discount Code UEFXGT. Doing a 50% discount. It may seem deep, but haven't sold anything since February, so figured what the heck. Have never had any luck with the discounts in the past, so not expecting anything to happen this time around either, lol.
I had a huge weekend with many sold pieces on FAA but none of the buyers utilized the hefty discount code I provided through facebook. I was doing it more as an act of generosity for my facebook friends and family, a "Christmas is on me" type of deal and no one bought anything. Then random strangers bought a lot of pieces at full price. Go figure.
