    Do you promote promotions with NO end date
    The fantastic up to 70% off sale at Boux Avenue is still on, but HURRY, these great offers won’t last long!

    For a limited time only, Boux Avenue is offering their popular Chloe underwear set for £25 only.

    For a limited time only, Boux Avenue are offering free standard UK delivery on all orders.
    Though all the 3 example s are for one vendor on AffiliateWindow, this kind of promotions are there on each network, promotions without a clear end date. "Limited time", " Ends soon", "Won't last long" aren't valid dates. I can't store them in my databse. I put all promotions into a deals database and deals get deleted as they reach their end date. This way I don't serve old deals, and don't get into trouble with vendors who don't like seeing old deals being promoted. But with the "ends soon" kind of deals, I have no clue if I shd bother promoting.

    Isn't that just a marketing tactic, saying "ends soon" when it really is a lengthy offer, so people will think they have to ACT NOW OR LOSE OUT?

    I can't see merchants who promote this way changing things.

    Of course, they COULD provide non-advertised end dates for the eyes of affiliates only. But that's too simple of a solution (or too much extra work for some).

    I've looked into the account now, and those were promotions from an email which was just sent today. I believe that they may not have given an end date because it could be while supplies last, which then should have been mentioned. I will mention this to the Account Manager for that program so that the merchant can be encouraged to include that in future emails.

    Since you are an Affiliate Window affiliate, I just want to make sure that you know that if you pull your offers from the discount code database, every offer listed has a start and end date. While not all merchants choose to enter their offers into the discount code database, you can at least always know the official start / end date for all entries.

    I've spoken with the Account Manager for that program, and she is relaying that future emails should include specific dates for promotions to the merchant.

    My thought on promotion with no end date is delivering a message to the customer to grab their promotion as soon as possible because, anytime they can end that promotion. No definite date. It could be at this moment, later, etc.

    I do promote ongoing promotions (like "Free shipping with a $35 order"), but promotions that have a fixed, rapidly approaching ending date are going to perform much better.

    I always like to tell merchants that their promotions will get the most exposure on the day or two after it's listed and the day or two before it expires. A really good short-term promotion (1-4 days) works wonders.

    We usually doing this kind of offer but I assured that affiliates will be notified via email when the codes at least a day it's expired.
