The holiday email marketing season is just around the corner! According to the National Retail Federation, holiday sales account for 20 percent of all retail sales, so it’s clear that you need to have your game face on and be prepared to make the most of this opportunity.
To help get your holiday email marketing strategy in place, we thought we would do a quick rundown of tips and campaign ideas to help get you inspired.
Holiday Email Tips
There is more to a successful holiday season than just Black Friday and Cyber Monday. To make the most of your touchpoint opportunities, include the non-mainstream holidays in your strategy as well. What are we talking about here? Think Winter Solstice, Diwali, and Las Posadas. Have fun and give each campaign a holiday theme.
Don’t wait until Thanksgiving to start your holiday campaign. Kick things off with a fun Halloween offering and drive through Chinese New Year to get the biggest bang for your holiday email marketing bucks.
Segment your email lists and target your various emails based on user behavior and demographics. This will ensure the right message is reaching the right customers.
