In the desktop 3D printing niche, there are known brands that started using a new way of promotion in order to drive sales of their products. At the moment, Hot Deals and Discount Coupons are the new drivers in marketing. Black Friday Deals, like discounts, slowly but steadily started appearing on all maker-rich events, like Halloween or Valentine’s Day, for example. We will list here some major offers that caught our eye.
Disclaimer: Such deals and coupons work similarly to affiliate links – we will receive a commission if a purchase happens. This partially covers our costs and supports talented writers and influencers in the niche.
How Does it Work
As a rule, such deals are short-time campaigns and become outdated at some point after publishing. We will keep this list updated. If the date is greyed out, then it is most likely this offer is gone or replaced with a newer, different offer. Worth to try checking out anyway.
Marketing – Creating Urgency
Often awesome offers come back on the market in a matter of weeks. However, the recent issues with transportation, lockdowns, and chip shortages greatly affected the availability of certain products, and there were cases when a product was sold out and not available for months (Elegoo Mars 3) or an order fulfillment delay of 4-6 weeks was a normal occurrence (Prusa Printers).
Another way to get the best deal is to support crowdfunding campaigns and secure an Early Bird price. 3D printers are niche products and not quite plug and play at the moment as certain skills are required to operate the machines. Therefore, launching a new, technologically raw, product with an affordable consumer price tag is a tricky business. And we witnessed in the past how big companies used such platforms as a pre-order base. Some campaigns worked well for everyone, and others did not.
Disclaimer: Crowdfunding campaigns – before taking part in any campaign as a backer, please read T&Cs. Rewards aren’t guaranteed.
