Managers. Here, add someone who is your friend on Campus Discounts to help you manage your page. Managers can edit page details, post discounts, view analytics, respond to messages and access the page account. You can also remove managers here.

Messages

To facilitate direct communication, users have the option of messaging a business page. A page manager can view and respond to these direct messages by accessing the messages tab on their page. Once a manager responds to a message, the response is displayed in the user's inbox.

Premium Features

To access premium features on your page, click the black arrow icon next to your page name, select manage and choose premium features. This opens to display your page account and four different tabs which you can use to verify your page, add Slack, link to your Facebook page and access advanced analytics. Get a detailed outline on how to activate each of these features in this article.

Analytics

View detailed analytics on your subscriber numbers, page recommendations and ratings. Users who choose to subscribe to your page are sent instant notifications each time you post a discount. User reviews and ratings serve to give you direct feedback on your product pricing and quality plus your overall customer service experience. When users can recommend your business page to others, these page recommendations appear on their friends' feed.
You can use this data to help you assess your marketing efforts on Campus Discounts.

Account

Page account refers to your business page’s cash and credits reserve on Campus Discounts. This is money that business managers will need when they want to use discount and/or page premium features or purchase apps on the platform so as to boost their marketing.
Here, page managers can top up their page cash that is money added to a page account. Currently, we support cash top up via PayPal. Managers can also see their page credits amount. This is Campus Discounts virtual currency that we give pages so that they can use to market here and on other social media platforms.

My Pages

This tab displays all your business pages with direct links you can use to access menu options for each page. You can access the menu by clicking the black arrow icon next to the page, then select manage. Remember, you only need one page per business.
