"The holiday season is a perfect time to reflect on our blessings and seek out ways to make life better for those around us."
– Terri Marshall
The holiday season presents magical opportunities for businesses to boost sales and engage with customers in a meaningful way. “Holiday shopping puts consumers in a somewhat different mindset than usual – they’re spending more, perhaps exploring unfamiliar brands for the first time, and looking for convenient shopping options.” (Nextdoor)
5 strategies for your business to shine brightly amid the holiday hustle and bustle while spreading joy to your customers and employees:
1. Deck the Halls (and Your Website): Update your website with holiday-themed banners, graphics, and product displays. Create a sense of excitement and capture the holiday spirit to attract visitors and encourage them to explore your products or services. KGI can help create custom graphics for you!
2. Festive Social Media Campaigns: Consider running festive contests, sharing behind-the-scenes glimpses of your company’s holiday preparations, and incorporating popular hashtags to increase visibility. From FB to Linkedin to Instagram, KGI can create reusable content to spread your message.
3. Email Marketing Magic: Dive into your customers’ inboxes with well-crafted holiday email campaigns. Share exclusive discounts, limited-time offers, or upcoming events. “Do the work for them – send an email highlighting the ‘most popular’ gifts on your site, with a link to your site to make the purchase.” (Exposure) Create a sense of urgency by incorporating countdowns to key shopping dates, like Black Friday, Cyber Monday, or another specified day. Need a “nice list?” KGI can create one and set you up on email marketing!
4. Gift Guides and Bundles: A great way to make holiday shopping a breeze for your customers is by curating gift guides and product bundles. Grouping complementary items and offering a bundled discount not only simplifies the decision-making process for shoppers but also increases the average transaction value. Check out KGI Sprout packages for small businesses or book a 2-hour Brain Storm Session. Mention this email on our contact form for your gift of a discount code.
5. Give Back to the Community: At KGI, giving back is something we value throughout the entire year. You can especially show your business’s compassion by giving back to the community during the holiday season. Consider organizing charity drives, partnering with local nonprofits, or donating a percentage of holiday sales to a charitable cause. Not only does this create a positive brand image, but it also inspires your employees and staff to come together for a greater cause, as it aligns with the spirit of the season. KGI is collecting unwrapped toys and gift cards in our office in Farmingdale to donate to Angels of Long Island on December 14. If you’d like to drop off a gift, let us know! Or, if you would like to give a donation, we can purchase a toy in your name and add it to our Santa bag.
“Angels of Long Island’s mission is to assist and advocate for people in our Long Island community who are in need of assistance during this troubled economic time. Our goal is to empower people to overcome poverty and live prosperous lives. We aggressively provide a wide range of services and goods to people in crisis.”
Overall, the holiday season is a prime opportunity for businesses to connect with their audience, drive sales, and foster positive relationships. By implementing these strategies, you can ensure that your business stands out and thrives during this festive time.
