3 new bowling center
promotions that cost nothing to try.
Bowlers are tired of the same old bowling alley promotions.
How many years have we been putting a red pin in the rack, giving customers a
chance to roll a strike for a free game? I'm falling asleep just thinking about
Below are 3 awesome, unique promotions that will get your
customers to bowl longer and come back more frequently. Gamify open bowling.
Game 1 is $5, game 2 is $4, game 3 is $3 and every game after is $2. Bowlers
will think they are saving money by bowling more when they will be bowling more
than they expected. Set the scale to the pricing that works best at your center
and watch customers stay for hours since they're getting such a good deal!Everyone wants to bowl well.
Offer open play bowlers the
option to play no-tap at no charge.
Counter Person: "Hey, do you guys want to play 9s
Customer: "What's 9s enough?"
Counter Person "9s enough is where if you get 9 on your
first ball, it counts as a strike!"
Open play customers will remember this as a fun twist on
their experience at your bowling center. Next time they think about going
bowling, they'll remember that your bowling center let them have a little more
fun than your competitor down the street. This is great for parents with small
children or adults who are self described "horrible bowlers." If a
group of 5 bowls 2 more strikes per person per game over 3 games, the lane will
turn over 22 minutes faster!
Every game a customer bowls, they get $0.25 taken off the cost of
their rental shoes. On average, customers who rent shoes bowl 2 - 3 games. Open
play bowlers will feel like they're getting a better deal and saving money by
bowling longer. At $3 per game, you'll make $2.00 - $2.25 ROI on every extra
