I Finally Did It....

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 ;) )

Did one for "Cyber Monday". Over 6,000 people saw the post on my FB page and sent the discount code to my email list....no luck. I think Cyber Monday only applies to large online retailers.

Thanks Abbie!
@ 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.

@Art you may be right. I have mine running through the 18 th for shipping deadlines. Hopefully I'll get a few bites with in that time.

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

It can be Ryan. It's like you have to catch the right people at just the right time. So hard to make sense of it sometimes.

I have a large Facebook following, but most are outside the USA and are a young demographic. If I had a older US following on Facebook I could pay for a few Happy Meals.

No because I don't think people buy fine art based on sales. They like something and they buy it. Commodity products like DVDs, TVs, clothing is sold on discount. Not art.

 

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)

I had a code out for Cyber Monday. One follower had been eyeing a particular piece for a while and figured she'd better strike tonight while the deal was still good, so I'm glad I put it out there.

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

I have no clue how to use them.

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.

I make discount codes every so often but no one has used one.

I saw a funny sign posted in my neighborhood on Thanksgiving. It said, "Black Friday Garage Sale". I was tempted to get a lawn chair and sit outside their house so I could be first in line.

Yeah I just did a discount code for 40% off - for the month of December - nothing else works - so I thought - well who knows! good luck Shana!
