Email marketing during the holiday season requires some special measures to ensure that your message is heard through the noise everyone else is making during the holidays. Marketing has to always be happening, but you should ramp it up a little bit during the holidays due to everyone else doing the same.

Plan Ahead

You want to be noticed, so plan ahead so that you can figure out how your emails will stand out compared to other people’s emails. Plan your titles, headlines, and subject matter so that it’s interesting and to the point for your audience.

Create Email Series

Don’t just make one email about a particular topic. Instead, make email series about a particular topic. For example, instead of one email called Eight Reasons You Need Algebra, you can create eight emails – one for each reason.

Engage with Your Audience

Spruce up your profiles and your social networks, and really engage with your audience. A lot of them will have more time off during the holidays, so it’s a good time to impress them with your knowledge.

Remember Your CTAs

Every single email you send should include a CTA. Not every call to action has to be about selling something. Some of the CTAs that you add to your emails will be about joining you on Facebook or about signing up for a free challenge.

Incentivize Your Audience

Give them a reason to want to buy from you by making bundles, offering discounts, donating to a charity or by having a Christmas party. Whatever it takes to get your audience excited about making purchases should be done.

Focus on Benefits

In any message you create, you have to remember it’s all about benefits. How does it benefit your customers for them to agree to let you email them? How does it benefit your customers to buy the upgraded version?

Rethink Your Headlines

During the holidays it’s okay to try to add a little bling to your headlines by mentioning the holiday, but only if you’ve studied your audience enough to know whether or not they like the holiday you’re mentioning.

Segment Your Users

As with any other time of year, it’s important to segment your users into different groups. For example, people who came into your funnel by buying product A should be on the list that talks to people who bought product A.

Test, Test, Test

Always look at the metrics. Study based on your goals, and what you plan to accomplish for the campaign. You can’t know if anything worked unless you study the metrics.

If you want to be successful with your email marketing during the holidays, it’s important to get a head start as well as know exactly what you’re promoting, to whom and why. You’ll be able to boost your holiday sales even more with the right email marketing strategy.

About Me

I've been designing and marketing websites and businesses for over 24 years and prior to this I worked in sales, marketing and big business for almost 18 years... which makes me not only old, but also highly experienced at this marketing and Internet stuff.  I've won lots of awards and helped thousands of people, and this website is a testament to the information I share freely to help others succeed online.

When I'm not designing websites, doing this online marketing stuff or writing. I love nothing more than getting out on a weekend and scuba diving. I'm a qualified rescue diver and love getting wet in the waters around Perth and Rottenest Island. I also cycle, which must be a sight as I'm not the thinnest of people (lol)... and a paddle on a kayak or a swim helps makes most weeks, perfect. At home I have a marine reef tank, which I just love and on top of that I've an awesome dog, called Ziggy.

What Can I Do For You?

I can work with you to design a website and marketing strategy that actually works. You'll get a website that looks fantastic but also attracts and engages your potential customers, helping generate leads, sales and profits.

What Will It Cost ?

A discussion about your requirements is completely free of charge.

Solutions are tailored to meet your budget and success goals as much as possible, and websites have been delivered costing just a few hundreds dollars a month or for one of payments of a few thousand... it all comes down to our discussions, if you want a website that generates millions of dollars in sales your budget will obviously be bigger, if you're a small business then your goals and costs will be more realistic, at least to start with.
