The Volusion Product Team is excited to announce the release of our latest feature on V11, Deal of the Day! Continue reading to learn more about this awesome new addition to your store.
Daily deals have taken the world by storm. Businesses of all shapes and sizes are flocking to sites like Groupon and LivingSocial to post their deep discounts. And if you’re like the average consumer, you’re probably receiving daily emails that inform you of the latest deal.
There’s no denying the power of daily deals. There is, however, a valid concern regarding how profitable these third-party sites are to your business – is it really worth the risk and high costs?
To help you leverage this marketing tactic without the uncertainty, we’ve shifted the power of daily deals into your hands. With the introduction of our latest feature, Deal of the Day, you now have the authority to fully manage daily deals on your site, all without having to pay big bucks to someone else.
What is Deal of the Day?
Deal of the Day was designed with one goal in mind: to make you more successful.
In addition to setting up one deal per day, this new feature gives you the freedom to schedule multiple deals for the same day, or even schedule promotions that span multiple days. And to help you draw attention to these irresistible discounts, you can easily spread the word via built-in social sharing capabilities!
To get started, all you have to do is enable the feature in the admin of your V11 store. Then, simply select the product you want to feature, enter the discounted price and select how long you want the deal to last. And just like that, you have a dedicated page where customers can quickly find your daily deals.
Here’s an example of what the final result looks like to your customers:
