We’re in the holiday season, which means it’s time to get your digital marketing game face on. From creating an exciting offer that gets customers excited, to leveraging social media and Google Ads, these tips will help you boost sales this winter season.
Publish Gift Guides
A gift guide is a collection of products that you recommend to your audience. They can be presented as a compilation or in separate blog posts.The best time to publish your gift guides is right before Christmas and the New Year so that you have an opportunity to generate sales for those who want items on their list, but haven’t started researching yet. If possible, publish them sooner than later so that they’re ready when the season starts and more people are buying gifts.
You can create a gift guide from scratch using different product images and descriptions—or use one of our template files here! The key point is to select only high-quality items for inclusion in your guide; otherwise, it will seem like spam instead of helpful advice from someone who has tried out every single piece themselves (and liked all of them).
Create Exciting Offers and Coupons
A great way to attract new customers is by creating exciting offers and coupons. There are many different ways to do this, and it’s important to make sure that the offer you create is specific to your audience. For example, if you’re selling winter clothes online, offering $50 off all purchases over $100 may not be as attractive as offering 10% off any purchase of more than $100.
One of the most important things when creating an offer or coupon code is making sure it’s easy for users to redeem it! This means that anything you put in front of them should be clear about what they get and where they can use it—ideally with a big “Redeem” button that stands out from everything else on your site/app.
Let Customers Know Your Opening Hours
- Make sure you are open when your customers want to shop.
- Make sure you are open when your customers want to buy your products.
- Make sure you are open when your customers want to buy your services.
- Make sure you are open when your customers want to buy a gift card from you for the holidays or for any other occasion, such as birthday and Mother’s Day gifts!
Leverage Social Media and Google Ads
Social media is a great way to reach customers. Use hashtags, share posts, and respond to comments. Remember that social media is more about engagement than it is about sales. You want to make sure that your audience knows you are listening and wants to support you.
Google Ads (also known as Google AdWords) are another great way of reaching customers in their search results. If someone searches on Google for “Christmas gifts” but then goes through all the results without clicking on one ad, that advertiser has wasted money on those clicks because they did not convert into sales or leads! By targeting certain keywords like “Christmas gifts” with specific types of ads such as text ads, banner ads or video cards (cards between videos), advertisers can ensure they show up first in the search engine results page (SERP). When users click your ad link after viewing it in the SERP they get directed directly back over at yoru site which hopefully leads them towards purchasing something from within there! This can really help increase brand awareness while generating heatless traffic that converts well into actual sales!
Invest in Email Marketing
Email marketing is a great way to reach customers and keep in touch with them throughout the year. Email marketing has been around for a long time, but it’s still one of the best ways to communicate with your customers and promote your products.
Email marketing is an effective way to reach customers because it’s cost-effective and convenient—and it can be automated so that you don’t have to spend hours every week manually sending emails out to everyone on your list. If you use email marketing correctly, there’s no reason why you shouldn’t see an increase in revenue from year to year!
Make Product Reviews Easy to Write
One of the best ways to get more reviews is to make it easy for customers to leave them. You can do this in a few ways:
- Provide clear product descriptions and images, making it easy for your customers to recognize their purchase after they’ve received it (and hopefully enjoy using it).
- Make sure that you have a link or form on your website where people can leave reviews. If you’re using a third-party platform like Google Reviews or Yelp, then allow customers to submit reviews there as well. And if possible, ask them directly through email campaigns or social media!
Finally, if you’re launching new products this season—or even if you’re just trying something new with an existing one—consider using a review tool such as Yotpo’s Review Widget which will help convert happy customers into reviewers by collecting their contact information automatically during checkout process so that all they need do is write their review and click send!
Digital marketing can help bring customers to your business during the holiday season.
It’s no secret that Christmas and the holiday season are great for business. But if you’re not planning ahead, your digital marketing efforts could be falling short this holiday season. With so many other brands vying for customers’ attention during the most consumer-oriented time of the year, it’s important to stay organized and make sure you’re reaching all of your potential buyers.
Digital marketing is often an integral part of any business’ holiday strategy—but if you don’t already have a plan in place, now is the perfect time to start one! Digital marketing doesn’t just include things like Google Ads or Facebook ads; it also includes content marketing and email marketing campaigns as well as social media posts (you know how many people post their lives on Instagram).
Digital marketing is a great way to reach customers, and it can be used to make the most of your holiday sales.
