Upcoming Workshop Alert 🤩 Roadmap to Black Friday Success: Step 3 - Promo Strategy. Prepare for Black Friday with our workshop series!

“If you build it, they will come.” Right? Wrong! The idea that a business can launch products and an audience will magically appear to buy them is an enduring myth.

The reality is that you need to promote them. Making, sourcing, and launching products is only one part of your job — another factor is to promote them.

In this third of our Black Friday workshop series, we’re focusing on promotional strategies. With Black Friday already being a popular shopping period, it’s the perfect time to think about promotions.

You’ll see how to prepare your store for the big sale, the type of incentives to offer, how to incorporate SMS for extra revenue, and of course, expert tips from the Omnisend team.

And as always, you’ll have the opportunity to ask us your questions, so you’re perfectly positioned for a bumper Black Friday.

Date & Time: Wed 26 July at 10:00 AM ET / 3:00 PM GMT+1

Forms

  • We're thrilled to introduce exciting new features to enhance your form-building experience! We're introducing a brand new multi-step form use case that allows you to strategically engage your prospects with micro-yes questions, creating a seamless progression toward conversion. Here's what you can expect:

  1. Close a Form with a Button Click: Ability to close a form with a button click.

  2. Next Step Action: You now have the ability to guide your prospects to the next step of the form using a button click. By utilizing the "Next step" action on the button, you can seamlessly transition users to the subsequent step of the form.

  3. Interaction Tracking: When a visitor clicks on the next step action, it will be counted as an interaction, allowing you to track engagement and monitor user progression.

  4. Two-Step Promotional Forms: With these new features, you'll have the ability to create two-step promotional forms. This allows you to capture initial user interest with the first step and then guide them towards a conversion or more detailed information in the second step.

  • Great news! We have added a variety of new form templates to our collection. These templates are designed to simplify your form creation process and enhance user engagement.

  • Possibility to add a close button to a teaser. To add a close button to a teaser and address the concerns about space utilization on mobile screens, follow these steps:

  1. Open the Form builder where you created and customized your teaser.

  2. Click on the Teaser tab.

  3. In the right panel or settings menu, locate the checkbox labeled "Show close button." Check this box to activate the close button feature for the selected teaser.
