13 Spooktacular Halloween SMS Templates

It's that time of the year again! When all of a sudden we find our social newsfeeds covered in spider webs, overflowing with cute pumpkin or bat emojis and trick-or-treat puns... it all just means that Halloween is coming soon. 

According to the National Retail Federation’s annual survey, more than 213 million Americans plan to participate in Halloween-related activities, resuming many of their pre-pandemic favorites: trick-or-treating, redecorating homes and backyards, pumpkin carving, or dressing up with their kids.

This Halloween consumer spending is expected to reach an all-time high of $10.14 billion, up from $8.05 billion in 2020. Buyers will spend on average $102.74, compared to $92.12 in 2020. As the pandemic is still ongoing for many regions worldwide, online shopping remains the safest option and 29% of shoppers plan to make their Halloween purchases online.

Meaning… exactly what you think it means. Brands should ride the wave and get on board with engaging and appealing Halloween activities - whether it is an entertaining giveaway on social media channels or a massive online flash sale. To get you all inspired for the upcoming holiday, we have prepared a set of 13 spooktacular SMS templates, let’s get started!
