Boosting sales with promo codes on Reelhouse
Attract traffic to new film.
For France’s National Holiday, adventure filmmaker Seb Montaz created a promo code for two of his films for 50% off.
He advertised the sale on Facebook, posting the code just above our purchase-optimized player, allowing folks to buy and redeem the code directly from their Facebook feed. The filmmaker was able to watch how many codes were being redeemed — live through the Reelhouse metrics dashboard, and expire the promotion after the holiday was over. He saw traffic from the promotion spill over to his other catalogue films that weren’t on promotion, and saw his 3rd highest revenue day ever.
