Here's why you should be offering promo codes for your sports facilities.

Posted on April 8, 2021 in Bookapitch Blog

There’s no better incentive to complete a purchase when you get offered a promo code or discount, right? Here at Bookapitch, we think this should apply to booking sports facilities online, too.

Today on the blog, we’re breaking down why – and how – to utilise promo codes to bring more revenue to your sports facilities.

Using promo codes provides an incentive for customers to book your facilities.

When a customer receives an email offering them a promo code, not only does it incentivise them to use your venue, but it also puts the idea of getting out & booking a facility in their minds in the first place! Now they’re in the mood to get out and play – not just anywhere, but at your venue.

Using promo codes encourages people to pay for bookings online.

We’ve talked about the benefits of using online bookings in comparison to invoicing on the Bookapitch Blog before, but it’s worth mentioning again. When customers pay for their bookings online, you get paid instantly and don’t have to worry about bad debts or chasing payments. By offering promo codes to your customers, you’re encouraging them to pay online.

You can get more bookings during off-peak times.

Take advantage of off-peak times! If you have a window of a few hours where you don’t get much traction towards your facilities, offer a promo code and limit it’s usage so it can only be used during that specific time.

Here’s an example of how you can create promo codes for specific days and times with our sports facility management software:

You can engage specific segments of your customer base.

Have a type of customers you’d like to bring towards your facilities? For example, you’d like to get more community rugby teams to come use your pitches. Offering them an exclusive promo code will encourage them to come use your facilities and make them likely to return again and again.
