Offer expires Friday, June 4th.|
Why do marketers put time-dated offers in their promotions?
Because they work. Time-dated offers help our customers and prospects make decisions instead of procrastinating.
But be careful... the government might want to speak to you about your tactics.
The FTC (Federal Trade Commision) has a phrase called "good faith" when it comes to time-dated sales. If you offer a ONE-DAY SALE, day after day, you might get a review. The FTC calls it deceptive advertising.
Besides being deceptive, it might turn off your customers.
For example, an online marketer had a 50% off sale for a new product. The expiration date was only a few days away. Many people rushed to buy because the offer was limited in time.
But, upon further inspection, people noticed the "limited-time offer" was indeed unlimited. As each day passed, the expiration date increased a day, too.
Besides the possibility of landing a deceptive advertising FTC action, the marketer might turn off the customer for any future sales.
Added tip: If you do legitimately time-date a special offer, shorten the
window of opportunity. One online marketer tested a one-week
expiration date vs. a same day expiration date. The result: sales
spiked when buyers had less than one day to buy.
