With many students returning to school and colleges across Ireland and beyond, this month offers a great opportunity to be creative and concise with your Text Marketing promotions. The World Guacamole Day also offers an opportunity to spice things up if you are active in the food industry.
October holds some really interesting sales dates for ecommerce businesses’. If you want to raise the energy levels of your buyers, use International Coffee Day to attach some coffee samples to your orders. You can do the same for your vegetarian customer base.
At the end of the month, Pumpkin Day and Halloween are proven events which offers you the opportunity to run some effective discounts and promotions on seasonal products.
Breast Cancer awareness will be on the minds of everyone this month with charities seeking to raise money for an important cause.
The month of November is regarded as a month that retailers both love and hate at the same time. November is both busy and intense for many retailers as they scramble to make as many sales as possible. With Black Friday being the climax of November for many retailers, it is important to ensure that you are offering worthwhile discounts on products that are desirable for this time of year.
Men’s health awareness month (commonly referred to as Movember) will also be top of mind for many this month which offers retailers a great opportunity to get involved and support the month-long event.
Demand for products remains high during this period as everyone makes a dash to buy Christmas presents for their friends and family. It is once again vital that you promote and discount your most giftable products with a clear lead-time promise to ensure that your customers are not disappointed by gifts arriving after the 25th.
