Voucher Campaign

Giving away a voucher card is a great way to bring your services to the attention of your (potential) customers. Every card has a unique code and you can sell or give them away for free to a selected group of your customers.

How to apply?

  • Sell them in your shop to a specific target group. To stimulate customers to buy the product, shop employees should demonstrate the product on the spot and help with the signing up.  

Landing page

On your voucher card, the focus should be on the essence of your message. A customized landing page, is the perfect place to elaborate. This webpage should contain information such as what viewers need to know about the campaign (for example the benefits and your added product value) and how to order the product or to sign up.
