Holiday-themed Email Marketing
Holiday campaignsPerhaps the most affordable use of holiday-themed email marketing is for retail or restaurant. Touch base with your full database. Here are some ideas for you to incorporate into your communication mix:
  • Remind them about Gift Cards - Whether you are a retail store, e-commerce site, or restaurant, you can use email to promote your gift cards. For example, a spa could offer a free manicure to the purchaser of a $100 gift card.
  • Offer Gift Ideas - Everyone is trying to figure out what to buy for their friends and family. You can help your customers out by highlighting gifts that would be great for family or the friend who has everything.
  • Offer a Range of Promotions - Don't just offer one promotion for the holidays. For one person, free shipping might get them to buy from you, for another, incremental discounts might work better (spend $100, get 15% off; spend $200, get 20% off; etc).
  • Communicate about Holiday Hours - If you have a retail shop, you can send an email announcing that you have special holiday hours for your customers' shopping convenience.
  • Invite Customers to a Special Event - A great way to get people to come and shop with you is to hold a special event complete with holiday specials and enticing discounts.

Send out a holiday email invitation with all the details.

Success Stories
"Within 5 days of sending my very first newsletter, I sold over $1000 in product, booked two business meetings and had seven inquiries from people interested in joining my business.  The biggest surprise was the post analysis as it gave me specific results which allowed me to create an efficient, targeted strategy for follow-up!   Plus, I love the gift of being able to stay in touch with my clients in a personal and memorable way."
