What is an ExpertVoice Flash Deal?

A Flash Deal is a 7-day promotional event that enables brands to generate brand awareness, clear product inventory, support product releases and ultimately drive revenue by offering products at a deep discount to ExpertVoice’s high-value audience. It’s an opportunity to tap into a network of over 850,000 industry insiders who are eager to discover new products and share their experiences with others. By participating in a Flash Deal, brands can seize the chance to create a buzz around their offerings and drive sales like never before.

What are the biggest benefits for participating brands?

When it comes to Flash Deals, the benefits are abundant. Let’s explore some of the key advantages that brands can expect to see: 

  • Build brand awareness across the broader ExpertVoice audience of over 850K industry insiders.
  • Support products throughout the entire life cycle to promote early adoption, boost and maintain in-market momentum and reduce inventory end of the season.
  • Discover new market opportunities by showcasing your products to a diverse audience of industry professionals.
  • Gather fresh UGC and reviews to support sales where inventory is still available in the market.
  • Keep excess inventory out of traditional discount channels by offering it to target audiences on ExpertVoice.

Drive results in average order volume (AOV) and post-deal sales

Flash Deals not only generate a surge in sales during the promotion but also leave a lasting impact on your brand’s performance. Here’s how they drive results beyond the deal:

  • Flash deals drive overall brand lift: During the Flash Deal, the promoted products accounted for only 44% of the total order volume. This indicates that customers were purchasing discounted items and exploring and buying other products from the brand. 
  • Continued lift post-flash deal: The success doesn’t end with the conclusion of the Flash Deal. Participating brands have experienced an average sales increase of 15% following the promotion compared to the period prior to the deal. This sustained lift underscores the long-term benefits that Flash Deals offer in terms of brand growth and sales performance.
