Valentine’s Day isn’t just a season for love — it’s also a season for more revenue.
According to the 2017 Mastercard’s Consumer Purchasing Priorities survey, shoppers across the Asia Pacific spend an average of 133 USD on gifts for their loved ones.
With higher consumer spending, the Valentine season is a perfect opportunity for your business to push your products and services. But how do you do that — especially in this short amount of time?
Don’t fret. We got you!
Loads of people look for gifts for their partners at the last minute. So help them out by creating a gift guide.
Look at what you offer and decide which would make good Valentine’s Day gifts. You don’t have to go for something catered to couples alone. Be creative and consider different markets — those that have pets, those that want to give gifts to their friends, those that want to thank their parents, and many more. This is a time to celebrate love in all forms, after all.
Curate your selected items and feature them on your website. Create a catalogue and share it on social media or blog if you have one. Make sure to link your items back to your online shop so your customers know where to get them.
If your online store has sorting filters, add a Valentine’s Day label and tag your items with it. This way, visitors can easily view your items in one place. If you have a physical store, set up a section inside featuring your selected items so customers can still shop for gifts in one place.
Make shopping for gifts easy for your customers.
Nothing screams “Love is in the air” louder than Valentine’s Day decor — so fill up your store with decorations fitting for the season of love.
For online stores, beautify your site with Valentine-themed elements:
If you have a physical store, adorn your entrance with eye-catching designs to attract people to your shop. Remember your gift guide? Build a section inside your store featuring your gift guide items.
Whether your store is based online or on a physical location, filling it with the spirit of Valentine’s Day improves your customer’s buying experience.
As mentioned, Valentine’s Day is about celebrating love in all forms, and that includes your love for your customers. Use this as a chance to express your appreciation through Valentine’s Day cards.
Send out virtual cards by crafting a simple email and sending it to your customer email list. Write a simple but meaningful message thanking them of their patronage, then add eye-catching designs. Show off your brand personality with creative messages!
Personalise your Valentine messages by giving out actual cards. Attach them onto your products to bring a smile to your customers.
This is sure to make your customers feel special — and on Valentine’s Day, it’s all about making everyone feel special.
