Create TryNow entry points with TryLinks

Updated over a week ago

By default, the TryNow purchase option is hidden from all public web visitors. For your shoppers to be able to view the purchase option, you will need to create TryLinks.

What are TryLinks?

TryLinks serve as the foundation of your Try Before You Buy program, enabling you to create high-performing TryNow experiences that supercharge your marketing strategies. With TryLinks, you can effortlessly guide shoppers toward immersive trial experiences with a single TryNow call-to-action on the product detail page.

Creating a TryLink is simple. Just paste a URL into our link generator, name the link, and share that Marketing Link with your shoppers. You can create as many TryLinks as you want with a few clicks of a button!

Check out the image below to see the shoper journey. Should a shopper decide to buy instead of try, a quick toggle-off of the Try Before You Buy option seamlessly exits the experience.

TryLinks serve as the foundation of your Try Before You Buy program! These entry points drive sales and delight shoppers.

What are the benefits of TryLinks?

  • Optimized conversion since a single TryNow button significantly outperforms two buttons on a product detail page

  • Gain control over your program by showing TryNow to select segments while hiding TryNow from others

  • Start small with targeted solutions such as browser abandonment, cart abandonment, retargeting ads, VIP customers, customers who reached out through customer support channels, and many other options!

  • Expand the program gradually by increasing the number of solutions you implement

How should I use TryLinks?
