Our new clients are continually awestruck by how simple it actually is to get started with Privy! While we relish every minute we get to spend working with our awesome merchant partners, we know how precious your time is; and in fact, we built our product with that in mind. That's why you can literally have your first Privy campaign live just minutes from sign up.
STEP 1: First, we're going to make sure first the widget is installed on your website. This is hugely important, because when someone is searching online (Google, Yelp, Bing) and finds your website, we want to make sure you have a way to engage them and capture contact info at their point of interest.
This is a one time installation, so once installed, you'll never have to touch it again. Whenever you create another campaign in your Privy dashboard, it'll automatically appear on your website. You can totally customize how the widget looks on your website from color to where it's situated.
STEP 2: Create your first offer or choose from one of our chalkboard templates and launch! Or take it one step further, and schedule your next few months of promotions. Enlist the help of one of our marketing specialists to help you come up with awesome, custom campaigns!
STEP 3: Next up is social media. In one click, we'll link your Facebook and Twitter accounts, giving us acces to share this promotion automagically, so you don't have to log in and do it yourself. Based on the preferences you choose, we'll post at optimal times to drive engagement. Further, we encourage your current fans and followers to share your specials with their own networks to boost your audience.
Sharing your offer on social media accomplishes 2 critical tasks. Number one, it allows you to re-engage the people in your network. Second, by asking them to share the offers with their network of new people, you gain exposure to a whole new audience of highly relevant potential customers.
STEP 4: The 4th and final component of distribution is paid reach. Now you can set a budget and Privy's proprietary algorithm will use that budget to put your offer in front of highly qualified local customers. When someone is searching for your business or a business like yours, Privy puts your offer in front of them so you can engage them right when they're thinking of you. Whether they're searching from a desktop computer or from their mobile phones, Privy is going to help you connect with the most relevant audience right when they're looking for you.
