1. Login to your Bridge.
2. At the top of your Bridge, roll over the green "+Add" button and from the drop down click on "Promotion."
3. On the Manufacturer Promotions page, click on the green "Add new promotion" button on the far right.
4. A floating white window will appear. In this window, enter the promotion's details:
A. Select the brand it applies to (this will only be a choice if you're a distributor).
B. Enter the promotion's headline. e.g. "Buy 4 place settings, get the 5th free!"
You do not need to enter the brand name in the headline. Our software will add that to the front of the headline automatically.
C. Select who can see the promotion. If the promotion is only for retailers and sales reps, then check "Only retailers & sales reps." An example of a promotion that only retailers and reps can see would be a free product display shelf or help with co-op advertising.
If the promotion is meant for the retailers' customers to see, then check the "Everyone" radio button. When you check this box, a red horizontal banner will appear on your retailers' and sale reps' public home pages and on their page showing your brand. Since this promotion will appear without their approval, please be sure to proof and craft your promotion carefully. It should be written in a manner your retailers and reps would approve for their public sites.
D. Enter the promotion's start and end date. You can leave this blank if you wish.
If you enter a start date, the promotion will not appear until the start date that you enter.
E. Enter any private details that only retailers and reps can see read about. For example, if you are running a public promotion to give 25% off items and you check that "Everyone" can see it, you may wish to add a private message that you are giving retailers 12.5% off the normal wholesale price.
F. Click the "Save" button. The white window will close and and Promotions home page will refresh and show your promotion.
5. If you selected "Everyone" for who can see the promotion, visit one of your retailer's or rep's sites to see the promotion.
