MailChimp’s Pyow, has made it easy for a store owner or business to send QR code coupons to their subscribers with a discount through e-mail. The customer can then present their QR code on their smart phone or by printout which can be scanned by the business to see whether it is still active or how many uses they have left. This is a pretty nifty option.
- Step 1
Send a campaign including the Pyow! merge tag.
- Step 2
Ask your customers bring in their coupons, either printed or on their smartphones.
- Step 3
Have Your Staff Scan the coupon with Pyow!
- Step 4
Log in to MailChimp to see how many times it was redeemed.
- Create and Insert a QR coupon into any MailChimp campaign.
- Specify how many times the coupon can be used.
- Scan a printed coupon or scan coupon on a smartphone using Pyow!
- Find out how many people used the coupon.
My daughter does PR and Marketing for two DC restaurants. A couple of weeks ago she wanted to e-mail her list offering a free cocktail for coming in during the slow vacation times. This would be the perfect way to keep track of the offer and its redemption so it could not be used by a person more than once. Unfortunately, I didn’t know about this two weeks ago. But now you do!
