Attract more customers during Black Friday-Cyber Monday with focused and enticing emails.
If there’s any shopping period where Shopify store owners should build strategies around, it’s Black Friday-Cyber Monday (BFCM). But how can online merchants reel in the attention of consumers overwhelmed by sales and CTAs coming at them from all sides?
Strengthening customer-focused emails is the answer.
Let’s first look at how important BFCM has become for online stores. According to Shopify’s December 2021 data, Shopify store owners collectively raked in a staggering $6.3 billion in sales globally between Black Friday and Cyber Monday, a 23% increase from 2020.
Expect a surge in site traffic during this heavy shopping week. A report from Bluecore noted that 2021 Black Friday site traffic was on average 110% higher than on a typical day across verticals.
Now to the important part: You want to obsess over your customer-centric emails to ensure they are well aware of your brand’s campaigns over BFCM.
After all, 85% of retailers will be emailing their customers through BFCM, so you don’t want to be that lonely 15% that fails to let them know about your sales and product launches. Joining the fray will ensure you’re top-of-mind for customers both new and old.
So how should you go about delivering personalized BFCM emails? Here are a few points to consider:
Now that you’re prepped for your email marketing campaign for BFCM, it’s time for you to execute and then look over the data post-holiday season and determine what worked, what didn’t, and where you can improve. Good luck!
