Your UnFranchise Business:
Don’t forget, you’re a small business as well! The holiday season, especially Small Business Saturday, is the ideal time to offer coupons to your customers. Offering coupons to your Preferred Customers is a great way to help them save big on our world-class products — and now you can share these coupons directly with your Preferred Customers right from your UnFranchise Business Account! These coupons are available in four different denominations: 10%, 15%, 20% and 25% off. It’s very important to note that these coupons will come directly out of your retail profit and that you can send one coupon per customer for every 30 days.
In your UnFranchise Business Account, select “My Customers” and then click “Coupon Admin and Marketing” to begin setting up and marketing coupons. Once you set up your coupons in the Current Coupons tab, you can select customers, choose an email template, preview it and then hit send — all from the Coupon Marketing tab. The first coupon code available in your UnFranchise Business Account is “10OFFMA.” This will enable you to give a 10% discount off all Market America products on your websites. U.S., Canada, and Mexico UnFranchise Owners can find this under the “My Customers” menu. All other countries will find the tool within the “Preferred Customers” menu.
Sharing coupons with your Preferred Customers can have a dynamic impact on the growth of your UnFranchise Business and will help your customers save big on the Market America products they love — so start sharing today!
