The basic principles of Marketing Foundation
The basic principle of the Marketing Foundation is centered on the Triple-A model: Advertise - Act - Award.
A customer needs to be aware of the marketing effort, so he or she needs to be exposed to a campaign.
This can be done on the entire site, on a product catalog, on a specific category or even on a specific product.
Once the customer is aware of the campaign, it is now time to perform the act that releases the award.
Again this can be done on any level in the shop or by entering a Promocode, or by buying for more than (amount) or buy more than (number of products). Finally you can introduce your own feature (e.g. subscriber to newsletter) through the option Dynamic order property.
Finally the customer gets to the interesting bit - the award!
The award can be a discount, free shipping, percentage of a specific product or a specific order line, or whatever the client wants it to be.
This concludes the sales process and hopefully closes the sale!
