Welcome to Content Corner, where we share ideas, processes and features we’re working on. This is about getting creative, improving what we do and sharing the reasons behind why we do it.
This week we’re diving into our Promotions service, a service which we brought to market last year. The concept of the Promotions is to help brands design and deploy redemption offers, marketing promotions or branding at scale.
Content Driver has actively deployed Promotions with Intel and ViewSonic throughout 2020, and more clients are beginning to use this service in 2021. We’ll be focusing on the concept behind Promotions, how the service works and how it’s changing the way brands and resellers deploy promotional campaigns, while providing real examples of Promotions that have been used in the past.
Our core content syndication service enables sellers with embeddable codes which deliver specific product content to their pages. This allows sellers to have interactive, attractive page content with ease. We’ve designed Promotions to effectively ‘piggyback’ off that syndicated content, thereby allowing us to have a promotion go-live on select products at short notice, with relative ease.
The brand will nominate which products they want to deploy a Promotion on, and the nominated partners who will execute the Promotion. Those partners can then opt-in via the Content Driver Platform for the length of the promotion, or conversely, opt-out if they have completed the promotion early.
We’ve assisted on delivering on various different ideas for current clients. Here are some examples of Promotions that have been successfully deployed.
Intel’s Game Redemption Program: To enhance intention-to-buy, Intel bundled various gaming properties with their processors over the past year. All the nominated resellers using the Content Driver service automatically received the promotion on select products. Customers were able to retrieve their game via Intel’s Microsite, or via the Reseller for the duration of the campaign.
ViewSonic’s Work from Home Campaign: During the COVID-19 period, ViewSonic aimed to educate consumers by directing traffic to work from home specific monitors. This promotion was branding based, with targeted messaging designed to keep consumers on their journey, instead of potentially losing a sale.
Intel Gamer Days Engagement: Designed to direct traffic to a campaign wide Gamer Days landing page for nominated resellers, boosting organic traffic to Intel products and providing an equal opportunity for each resellers Gamer Days deals.
These are just a few examples of the broad applications Promotions can be used for. Whether it’s branding driven, or purely a sales angle taken, Promotions make it easy for our brands to get their ideas to market, and for their resellers to take advantage in driving sales. This concept has been developed based on the difficulties of getting an entire reseller base aligned to deliver a marketing effort; with Promotions, we can ensure that the brand is well represented, and that all the nominated resellers are able to partake in the same effort. From there, we reduce the workload for the brand and reseller alike thanks to the ‘piggyback’ type delivery, and automated ON/OFF functionality which allows the brand to deliver high-impact sales campaigns rapidly or slow burning, brand driven campaigns over a longer period of time.
