The holiday season is fast approaching and it is the biggest chance for businesses to boost their revenue. Consumers are expected to spend about a trillion dollars between November and January, so if you haven't incorporated a proper marketing strategy to boost your sales for it, you're already falling behind.
If you have not done so yet, there is no better time than now to start thinking about your marketing campaigns. Let’s help you get started...
Choosing the right strategy
1. Be there
Make sure you have a campaign strategy for both your online advertising and email marketing, as they are both essential channels to increasing sales over the period. Social activities are a must! Get in front of your audience where they already spend the majority of their time, and engage with them with beautifully ads that they can’t miss.
2. Be creative
While creativity is key in order to win hearts,
your commercial offer shouldn’t be left behind.
Interactive commercial content is the answer to your business’s success this year. It is bold, fun to interact with, and creates a memorable experience that positions your brand as innovative. All that without compromising on your true objective – increasing revenue.
3. Be cost-effective
Making assumptions about how your audiences feel and what they want or need, can result in expensive and even damaging campaigns that squander opportunities to foster brand loyalty and boost sales. Using Interactive Commercial Content you can ask your target audiences questions through image-based quizzes, with bespoke Call-To-Actions. This allows you to gather 1st party data, actual user preferences and behaviours without compromising revenue goals.
