What about a 20$ gift Certificate on anything over $100.00. They feel like they are getting something big and yet you are only giving 20% off if they only spend the hundred. The more they spend, the less the discount.

Make it with your Logo, and very high end. ;)

I like Jennifer's idea...for exactly $100 it is $20, but after that it is still $20. Does anyone still do alot under $100? It is also something to make them coming back-so it helps now and later, good idea. I would put a time limit on the coupon or gift card say a year or six months. I like six months better, just before Christmas time. Then you can send a reminder at that time-use it before you loose it!!!

Our best ongoing program (which I have no doubt mentioned before, but I don't remember... what else is new?) is a coupon targeted to the individual customer. Basically they are getting 5% back. The floor is a $200 order. They get a card (business size printed on my computer with Publisher) for $10 off any purchase. No expiration, no restriction. It goes up from there. It is amazing how many people read a $30 card as 30% off. And they do come back... all the time. I keep these people in a separate database and mail a $20 coupon to them in August. This is less effective, surprisingly, than the thank you cards.

Our best promotion has been Child Art.
We select 7 -10 color metal frames and complimentary mats and provide an entire package (frame, mat, mounting and glass) for $30.00 to $80.00. This year I have been sending a flyer to the local pre schools, day care, and art teachers announcing I would make a $5.00 donation to the program of their choice for each order received. Just started this so I have only received 1 back.
The program that was a bust was the second mat free. Very little responce didn't bring existing
customers through the door.
I was thinking about offering the $20.00 off as gift certificate. Has any one already invented this wheel with art work and such that I could rent.
