Your Customers Don't Know You Have Gift Cards Until You Tell Them!

We are excited to roll out our newest installment of Giftbar Success Series on Visibility! Lack of sales is sometimes as simple as a lack of visibility. Customers can't buy something they don't know exists! You need to be the driver and make sure you have proper exposure that lets customers know you have a gift card program that can help them solve their gift giving woes.

Increase your visibility to customers and let them know you have an easy to use and highly curated gift giving service that they can take advantage of. Here are a few keys to making sure your business stays top-of-mind and always available to customers.

  • Website Placement - The most successful Giftbar merchants place their Giftbar merchant page link on their homepage where it gets the most exposure to customer traffic. Check out how this merchant successfully drives traffic with a well-placed link on their homepage (opens in a new tab).
  • Social Media/ E-mail - Place your link on your social media pages and have a email campaign that reminds customers that you sell gift cards.
  • Word-of-Mouth - Don't underestimate the power of word-of-mouth marketing. 74% of consumers identify word-of-mouth as a key influencer in their purchasing decision. Work with your staff to help them plug-in some of the benefits of your Gift Card program to customers on a regular basis.
  • Online Reviews - Make sure your online reviews are meaningful. Quality reviews put customers at ease when purchasing your gift cards. This can be a make or break for you in terms of sales as 88% of people trust online reviews written by other consumers as much as they trust recommendations from personal contacts!
