That can include a generic offers pass that can be updated frequently with special promotions according to the brand strategy.
Your customers’ news feeds are also a springboard to attract new customers as their likes or retweets of offers will appear on their friend’s newsfeeds, making it more likely they will click on your page to see the offer if they know a friend has done it.
Make your customers aware of your technology
