Now that you’re ready to blast out thousands of SMS Christmas promotions, let’s give you a few ideas.
Don’t overload customers
A single SMS promotion on Christmas day can be enough. If your customers are interested in your store, one message will do the trick.
But they leave something in their shopping cart… sure, why not give them a gentle nudge with an additional abandoned cart SMS alert?
Setup your SMS automations to remind customers about their forgotten checkouts to get those orders completed.
Blast out exclusive offers
Give customers an exclusive Christmas deal they can’t refuse. Try going for a bigger discount on popular and bestselling items.
Try targeting customers based on their product interests to combine exclusiveness with personalization and make the offer much more attractive for customers.
Hit the timing sweet spot
If you’re aware of the times when your customers are most engaged with your store or previous campaigns, focus on that. Still, remember that Christmas day is unlike any other shopping day.
Remember to enable your Quiet Hours if you want to avoid sending marketing messages at inappropriate times during the night.
