Treatwell Pro allows you to create limited-time discounts, called "Flash Promos". Using this tool, the time slots still free on the agenda can be filled with promotions of limited duration, particularly interesting not only for filling up the latest availability but also for attracting new customers.
Flash promo allows you to increase the possibility of booking and is ONLY active for online bookings.
To create a flash promo, access the main Treatwell Pro calendar screen and click on the lightning bolt icon in the top right corner.
The following parameters can be set in the "Flash Promo" window:
Duration: How long to make the promotion available. As this is a limited-time promotion, your options are limited to 24, 48 or 72 hours.
Apply to: allows you to apply the promotion to the entire list of services or to individual treatments: by choosing "All", the promo will be valid for all treatments, while with "Select" you will need to indicate the services and the respective discount percentages;
Discount: the option is active only if the item "All" was selected in the previous step. This is the discount percentage that will be applied to all salon services, from a minimum of 10% to a maximum of 80%.
Once the settings have been saved and confirmed, the flash promotion is immediately active and will be deactivated automatically at the end of the chosen duration. The time remaining is visible under the promotion icon (lightning bolt) on the main calendar screen.
The timed promotion can be modified or cancelled at any time by clicking on the icon to reopen the window and selecting the red "Delete" button at the bottom of the window.
NB: The Flash Promo will be visible in the Treatwell Pro Marketplace from 30 minutes after its creation.
Why use Flash Promos?
You can use flash promos mainly to be able to fill the gaps in the calendar through online bookings. It is particularly useful to use this tool in combination with the overview of the day, within which it is possible to evaluate the appointments already confirmed today and for the following days. In this way, it will be possible to implement a targeted strategy using flash promos, for example by discounting services that have not yet been booked.
