    • You can then paste the link into your product order form

Can I make a price/coupon that's only valid x days after someone subscribed?

Of course and here's how you can do it.

  1. Follow the steps above to create the secret/coupon price you want to offer
  2. In the Prices screen, scroll down to the Secret/Coupon Code Prices section
  3. Click on the Grab the link and insert a link to it in an auto-response or broadcast

    Grab_coupon_or_secret_link
  4. Select the Auto-Responses tab (create an Auto-Response or click on the one you already have)
  5. Place the Secret/Coupon Code link somewhere in the email body and click the Save changes button
  6. Scroll down to the Link section and click the Pencil icon to edit so you can set the link to expire

    Pencil_icon_to_edit_link_to_expire_price
  7. In the Expiration section, enter the X minutes/hours/days after the email is sent. That way, the link in the email will only be valid for the given time.

  8. Click the Save changes button

The underlying link will still work, so if they clicked on it, then saved the link, it'll still work for them.

But then again, they could also just sign up for the list again with another email address. So there's that.

The idea here is not to create a bullet-proof system but to create an incentive to buy while they're hot.

 

Sales Page for Secret Prices

Do you have a secret price you want to offer to a large group of people and therefore want a sales page linked to it? Generally, for a large group of people, best practice would be to create a coupon code and have them utilize that on your normal sales page/order form. But if you'd prefer to create it as a secret price with its own sales page then let us show you how. 

  1. Create a landing page. You can do this by creating a standalone landing page within simplero.
  2. Add a button image that will be your CTA box which they will click on and purchase. (Note, that you cannot create a sales page and use the default CTA box because that will link to the public prices for the product)
  3. Go back to the Product from your Simplero Dashboard
  4. From the Products tab, select a product from your list
  5. Select the Prices tab, locate the Secret price you want to offer and click the Grab the link to copy the URL
  6. Go back to your Landing page and hyperlink the box to this URL

    Grab_the_link

  7. You are all set, now you can share the URL of this stand-alone landing page and when people click on the button they will be taken to the secret price.
