Gift Cards "Bonds"
If your physical operations is closed down at the moment, but you offer gift cards, we suggest you to promote them as much as you can to gain access to immediate financial relief provided by your own loyal customer base. The best way to accelerate the success of your gift cards program is to offer them as "bonds," where your customer will buy a gift cards at a discount, say, $75 for a $100 gift card. Imagine if you can sell 100 of these, that would be $7,500 added to your bottom line and $25 for each customer that buys a gift card from you. The "Bond" can be honored when your business is permitted to re-open to its full operational capacity in the near future.
Most service businesses have gift card features already set up on their websites or stores, however, if you don't already have it set up, we can help you get going in less than 72 hours with significant reduced costs.
