How to Create CRM Activated Coupons

A CRM Activated Coupon is great for times when you’d like to allow someone on your list to receive a unique coupon code during your course or membership launch. This coupon code is will expire and creates a sense of urgency because it’s a limited-time coupon.

This is a kind of promotion code that can replicate a similar “expiring offer” that you might create using a tool like Deadline Funnel, Thrive Ultimatum, or Evergreen countdown timer.

You can also pair the coupon with our built-in countdown timers.

Step 3: Important – Create a Unique Custom Field in Your CRM

This part is very important you will need a unique custom field in your CRM to store the CRM coupon code. This custom field will only be used for this one coupon! It will be overwritten when the code expires so it is not recommended to reuse this custom field for any other coupon codes.

  1. Create a unique custom field in your CRM to store the coupon code.
  2. Copy and paste the link to use in the email that you would like to trigger this coupon code.
  3. Customize the text in the box that your users will see when their coupon has been applied.

Bonus! You can use this with the Generate Coupon Custom Operation to trigger the coupon from inside your site.
