6 Powerful SMS Templates for Your Christmas Marketing Campaign
It’s Christmas time! Shopify merchants, you better be ready for getting those holiday sales rolling in because this year customers are preparing to break spending records:
60% of the total predicted Christmas sales in 2020 will come from online stores, according to the NRF.
US consumers will spend $190.47 billion - an increase of 35.8% in sales, or the astonishing $50 billion, compared to 2019
In this post you will find 6 examples of Christmas SMS templates that will inspire you for your holiday text marketing campaign!
But before that... let’s start with some general tips:
Don’t overload your customers
A single SMS promotion on Christmas day should be enough. Because let`s face it: if people are interested in your product, one message will do the trick.
But if they leave something in their shopping cart then why not give them a gentle nudge with an additional abandoned cart SMS alert?
Set up your SMS automations to remind customers of their forgotten checkouts and 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.
You should also try targeting customers based on their product interests to combine exclusiveness with personalization and make the offer irresistible.
Timing is everything
If you’re aware of the times when your customers are most engaged with your store, stick to that. But 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 night times).
