How Do You Use MerchantCircle?

If you haven't checked recently, one of the newlyly created MerchantCircle Forum threads is "How-To-MerchantCircle." It's an excellent forum for trading ideas on the best way to utilize all the features of your MerchantCircle listing. You can also find how-to guides here, which includes adding a photo, publishing a coupon, creating a blog, creating an ad, amongst others.

MerchantCircle Moderator Monica Ross-Williams of ServiceMaster Building Services in Wayne County recently posted about one of our newest features in a thread titled, "How to Use the New Cool 'Create a Sale Feature' on M.C."

Create a Sale

Here's an excerpt:

I have to say that I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the new Create A Sale feature of Merchant Circle. If you have not used it yet, you are missing quite a treat. Here is a How-To-Guide on what to do

First-go to your Merchant Dashboard
Then-Promote my Business
-Start a Sale
-Click on the "Start a Sale" icon box

You are on the Build Your Announcement Page

From there
You can choose your sales template
Redstripe-This logo has a cool red, green, blue and yellow sale bags that state SALE in the various colors
Redtag-This logo is rightly name for the Red Sale Tag Logo in the upper right hand corner
Savings-This logo has a cute guy, counting his quarters, dimes, nickels and pennies for extra savings
Sidewalk Sale-This Logo uses the famous "Market Advisor" picture and replace the words with "Sidewalk Sale" instead....

Thanks for the great advice, Monica!

Read the whole thread and discussion here. Creating a Sale is perfect when highlighting a 1/2 off sale, or a red tag special, or even a weekend special.

There's many, many other gems to be found in the forums. For a list of next month's new features, be sure to periodically check into the MerchantCircle Forum thread "MerchantCircle Product Suggestions."
