How To Structure Your Discounts This BFCM

You’ve got your BFCM campaign structure sorted.

But have you thought about how to structure your discounts?

And what should be the ONE thing you need to be careful about when planning your discounting strategy?

Hear @andrewjfaris interview Jess Bachman of @hirefireteam in this 5-minute podcast for some fantastic advice on discounts.

Did you want a quick summary of what Jess has to say?

We're here for you!

Jess' top insight is to avoid 'monolithic' discounts for BFCM. Instead, his advice is to use offers strategically, in order to target different segments of shoppers.

His own strategy is to run two kinds of discounts:

  • Volume discounts for people who already know the brand. An example here could be a “Buy 5, Get 3 Offer”. With a high AOV (average order value), these margin-friendly discounts are profitable for the brand while still being competitive.

  • Sampling discounts for new shoppers who have no brand affinity. For example, use a deep discount like a BOGO offer for Cyber Monday to acquire new customers who may already have spent a considerable amount on other brands.

An Agency Tested 115 Ads For BFCM. Here’s What They Learned

Did we hear you say creative testing?

What do you do if you have neither the time nor the budget to do it at scale?

The answer is easier than you think — you learn from others, of course!

See what @nicholassbauer of Kynship has to say based on his experience with running 115 creatives for BFCM this year:

If there’s one thing we took away from his thread, it is to try a creative mix — and never to underestimate the power of a bold single-image ad!

#FeaturedAd - Andie

Brand: AndieCategory: SwimwearFormat: Video

WHY IT WORKS:

There’s a reason why brands are throwing money at influencers.

This ad is proof of what a good influencer can do. Using the ‘mystery package’ format, the ‘curvy’ influencer tries on 4 different swimwear options. The format is so engaging that even though the ad runs over a minute and a half, it’s hard to stop watching.

P.S. Can we have more? A swimwear ad that doesn’t leave us feeling like we need to draw up a 6-month diet plan is a WIN, and proof that the brand isn’t bluffing! With swimsuits that look THIS good on a real body, the ad really leaves us hopeful we’ll meet our “swimsuit soulmate”!

Time to stop holding our breaths, ladies (phew!). Our swimsuit search may indeed be over!
