Well we had our first big event of sales. It was lots of fun and thanks to everyone who participated. We had record sales for those 2 days!!
I did want to point out some critical info that will help in the future!
1. When you make your coupon...CHECK THE DATE!! It's easy to be off by a day. We all do it. Check your calendar and make sure you have the date correct. We had one seller off by a day and it made her coupon fail which is a quick way to lose a customer.
2. Learn from the pros. Go to the first page of the market directory right now. If you scan down you will see that Spirit Horse, Blue Turtle and Sea Willow have all added their promotions to their store info. This helps shoppers who are scanning for deals find you!!
3. Make sure you double check the details. We had one seller who had set the date and promtion code correctly but had left the quantity of coupons set to zero. What she had meant was there was "no # limit" but so it should have been left blank. The zero in that box made it so that no one could use it!! She lost at least 2 customers that day.
Please let me know if you have any questions about creating coupons. When we do more events in the future, we will give you more time in advance to be ready!
If you are running a sale let me know so that I can blast it on Facebook, twitter and the blog!
