When a company offers coupon code field, it creates an incentive for customers to buy, which works for both new and returning customers. You can specify whether the discount is a percentage or a fixed amount. Every coupon code has an expiration date, making it possible to track marketing efforts to determine which platforms generate the most conversions.
If you assign different numbers and letters to different ads based on promotion, customers will be able to recognize them more easily. As an example, MerryChristmas21 for Christmas, Jul04 for Independence Day, Memo21 for Memorial Day, and so on. Furthermore, different codes for different platforms can assist you in calculating the ROI (return on investment) of advertising on that platform. You also don’t have to wait for special occasions to give out coupon code field.
