What’s the best case scenario for shoppers on Valentine’s Day?
Having the right gift for the right person. Give them ideas!
Having the gift without being late. Remind them on time!
Having the best time they can. Complete steps 1 and 2!
Well, the best case scenario for your Shopify store can be to help them do just that.
The right gift for the right person
Personalization is the name of the game here. Learn how to target customers based on their product interests and send Valentine’s Day messages personalized to their own preference.
Be more than a business, be the source of inspiration they can count on to get the right gift ideas that will get their date fired up.
Use images and GIFs to showcase your products and spark more curiosity in customers to find out what your Valentine’s Day gift ideas are.
Show you intend to help first and sell second. A bit more conversation-oriented message content often sparks much more emotion and action.
Promote with timing in mind
Send out your SMS notifications and campaigns in time so customers can shop your sale before it’s too late.
Remind the last minute shoppers that your deals are still on and quantities are running low. They don’t want to disappoint their valentines, do they?
Show them you’re still there for them and remind them they can still finish their order. Show customers that your store is there to make their holidays memorable.
Your customers are the special ones
Valentine’s Day is for the people who matter the most in your life. For your business, this means your customers. Show them they matter by sending them a free gift?
Happy Valentine's Day!
