How to set up a WooCommerce Giveaway offer?

When discounts fail, sales periods are dry and no instant idea works, we are depressed…right?

But even in these situations, there’s one thing that can be instantly set-up and can cover up lost sales; even gain you more profits.

And that sure-shot tactic is…Giveaways. Simply gift a valuable thing for FREE!

The best part…you can easily set-up on your WooCommerce store.
Courtesy – Smart Offers.

So, let’s see how to create a simple WooCommerce giveaway offer.

How to set up a WooCommerce giveaway offer (step-by-step)

Here, we will see two cases where giveaway offers cannot fail to impress.

Case 1 – Encourage visitors to make a purchase

New visitors are always prone to abandonment, the reasons best known to themselves.

So, why let them abandon when you can use a giveaway to encourage them to complete the checkout.

In this example, when a visitor purchases an LED monitor, giveaway a multimedia keyboard for FREE.

Also, add a message that offer is valid only if the customer purchases within 30 minutes. This will induce urgency.

The basic offer set up steps remains the same as usual. What changes are the offered product price and ‘Display Rules’.

Step 1 – Under ‘Smart Offers’ tab, Go to ‘Add New Offer’ and give an appropriate title to your Giveaway offer.

Step 2 – Choose what you want to offer and at what price/discount rate. Since we are offering a multimedia keyboard as a giveaway, we set the discount to 100%.

Step 3 – Select the page where you want to target your WooCommerce giveaway offer. Select Cart page so that offer is visible at an early stage in the funnel.

Step 4 – Decide how you want to show your giveaway offer; as inline content or as a pop-up. We choose inline.

Step 5 – Since we want to show this offer to visitors, under Display Rules, we select ‘User Is A Visitor’, ‘Cart/Order’ contains ‘LED Monitor’ and ‘Cart/Order’ does not contain ‘Multimedia Keyboard’.

Case 2 – Retain existing customers by giving them an unexpected gift

Show your company’s swag. T-shirts, mugs, bags, etc. are effective items that can prove for better customer retention.

So, offer one of these products as a giveaway for your existing customers. Surprise them by giving these items after a purchase is made.

A very cool move to leave your mark in the customer’s mind.
