Offering your leads and customers with discounts via coupon codes is a powerful way to increase engagement and stimulate sales. With Ontraport you can create two types of coupons:

  1. Group coupons: These are codes multiple people can use, such as “BF2020” for a Black Friday discount. These are ideal for targeting a specific market or channel, encouraging opt-ins on your website, or awarding existing customers with a general discount.
  2. Personal coupons: These are unique, automatically generated codes that can only be used by one person, such as “F07DL.” They are ideal for targeting a contact after a page visit, promoting add-on sales for items similar to existing purchases, spurring new sales and re-engaging contacts.

Coupons can:

  1. Offer a percentage or dollar value discount, or a free trial of a subscription product
  2. Apply for all products or a specific product
  3. Have a valid start and end date

The coupon code feature is available to those with Ontraport Plus accounts and above.
