Maximise on potential sales by following our easy steps to a more manageable January sale campaign…
Cyber Monday, Black Friday, Christmas…there’s plenty to plan for as the year draws to a close, but thinking ahead to your January sale can really make the difference. Be sure to work ahead and get your website ready, decide on the products going into your sale, and plan your discount percentages, start dates, end dates and how you’ll promote key lines.
How are you going to let your website visitors know there’s a sale on your site? Design the banners you’ll be incorporating onto your pages, choose specific images and adverts, get all of this artwork created ahead of time to ensure there’s no delay come January.
How are you going to let your existing customers know there’s a sale on your site? Drive customers back to your website with a targeted email campaign, where possible make your campaign personalised with relevant product recommendations based on previous buying preferences. Consider a sneak-peak, discount codes, or early sale access for your valued customers.
The variety of social media platforms make promoting your sale to a wider demographic easier than ever! The variety of media available to upload should guarantee your sale advertising is interactive, colourful, and enticing. You should also make your posts and schedule them in advance to tick that off your to-do list ahead of January!
With a boom in confidence for online shopping, customers are using mobile phones and tablets for purchases to further boost convenience. Don’t see a potential sale go to a competitor because you don’t have your site optimised! A site that isn’t optimised for use on a phone or tablet can be difficult to orientate, frustrating to use, and erodes confidence for the safety of inputting payment details onto your site. There’s no short-cut but to put time and money into ensuring your site works seamlessly on each and every device.
