You do not need to enter the brand name in the headline. Our software will add that to the front of the headline automatically.

The banner will not appear until the start date is entered.

Select who can see the promotion:
If you are a brand or distributor:
You will be able to select if the promotion is only for retailers and sales reps. If so, check "Only retailers & sales reps." An example of a promotion that only retailers and reps can see would be a free product display shelf or help with co-op advertising.
If the promotion is meant for the retailers' customers to see, then check the "Everyone" option. When you check this box, a red horizontal banner will appear on your retailers' and sale reps' public home pages and on their page showing your brand. Since this promotion will appear without their approval, please be sure to proof and craft your promotion carefully. It should be written in a manner your retailers and reps would approve for their public sites.
Enter any private details that only retailers and reps can see read about. For example, if you are running a public promotion to give 25% off items and you check that "Everyone" can see it, you may wish to add a private message that you are giving retailers 12.5% off the normal wholesale price.
F. Click the "Save" button. The white window will close and and Banners home page will refresh and show your banner.
