How About 5 Bonus Ideas That You Can Do In 24 Hours?
Here you go…
- Flash Sale: Announce a 24-hour flash sale on select items, providing a significant discount to entice immediate purchases. Use eye-catching graphics and urgent language to convey the limited-time offer.
- User-Generated Content: Encourage your customers to share photos of themselves using your products on social media with a specific hashtag. Feature these photos on your website or social media platforms. This not only builds community but acts as a FREE promotion and can incentivise other customers to share their experiences.
- Free Shipping Promotion: Offer free shipping for the next 24 hours. Shipping costs are often a barrier to online shopping, so eliminating them can boost sales. This can be particularly effective if you’ve never offered it before or only offer it periodically.
- Product of the Day: Feature a specific product as the “Product of the Day” and offer a special discount or a bonus item with its purchase. Promote it on your homepage and through your social channels. Rotate products to introduce and highlight different items.
- Personalised Product Recommendations: Send out personalised product recommendation emails to your customers based on their previous browsing or purchase history. With the right e-commerce software, these can be automatically generated and can lead to increased sales.
All these ideas can be executed swiftly but require prompt action, monitoring, and potential follow-up based on customer feedback, platform metrics, engagement, and desired results.
