Using attributes for holiday promotions

With Black Friday right around the corner, we want you to blow the roof off your monthly and yearly goals!!!   There’s no better way to close the gap between your current revenue and your goal than running holiday sales and promotions.  So we put together some short tips for using the attributes feature to track and post your holiday promotional items using your ShopTheRoe account. This will help from becoming overwhelmed with tracking which items were promoted and how much you should invoice. Attributes are a simple way to keep track of promotional items, posting only promotional items to specific Facebook groups or ShopTheRoe Party Pages, and making sure that you remember to discount the price of the items that your customers purchased during a promotion.  We’ve include four short videos to show you, first, how to add the attributes to your inventory items.  Second, how to post the items to Facebook. Third, how to create a fun ShopTheRoe Party page that makes it easy for your customers to shop for the promotions that you are running (check out our example page here).  Finally, how to edit the price to apply the discounts after you customers have claimed the items.  It’s really simple and will save you hours on the backend.

  1. Navigate to the Inventory page
  2. Select the items that you would like to discount
  3. Scroll to the bottom and click “Edit Selected”
