Provide gift suggestions
Once the “-ber” months hit, it’s only gonna get busier from here. Encourage your customers to do their Christmas shopping early. Prepare an email campaign containing gift suggestions for your customer avatars or the people they care about. Add buttons that go straight through the product page as well.
Another thing you can do is to create bundles or packages with things that people usually purchase together and throw in a discount.
Make them feel valued
Because they are! Send in your thanks during Thanksgiving and Christmas. Send a heartfelt message through email or even a handwritten note would mean a lot. This fosters customer loyalty because while acquiring new customers is great, 40% of your sales are from repeat customers!
In the spirit of giving, you can also offer a special gift or discount to your loyal customers. This will grab their attention and show them how much you care!
