Get ready to jingle your bells, marketers! The holiday season is upon us, and it’s time to unleash the magic of Christmas marketing. To help you navigate the festive season and maximize your holiday marketing efforts, here’s a 12-day guide packed with creative ideas and actionable strategies.
Day 1. Deck the Halls with Data
Analyse your past holiday campaign data to understand customer behaviour and identify areas for improvement. Segment your customers based on demographics, purchase history, and engagement levels to personalise your messaging and offers.
Day 2. Double Up on Deals
Offer special discounts and promotions throughout the holiday season. Consider running limited-time offers, early bird specials, and flash sales to create a sense of urgency and encourage purchases.
Day 3. Create a Festive Email Marketing Drip
Plan and create an email campaign sequence that resonates with the holiday spirit. Incorporate holiday themes into your email campaigns. Share gift guides, holiday recipes, festive videos, and heartwarming customer stories in your festival email drip
Day 4. Automate Your Customer Journey Engagement
The festive season presents a unique opportunity for businesses but managing the increased demand and ensuring a seamless customer experience can be challenging. This is where automation proves invaluable, just as seen here.
By automating key stages of the customer journey during the festive season, you can unlock a world of efficiency, engagement, and increased sales.
Day 5. Ring in the Retargeting Bells
Target those who abandoned their carts or have not done business with you in a while with personalised retargeted campaigns via Emails, SMS, or WhatsApp.
Day 6. Be Like Santa
What is Christmas without Santa and have you ever seen a Santa without a gift bag? Offer special discounts, cashback rewards, and sign-up bonuses to incentivize new users.

Design captivating email campaigns that capture the spirit of the season. Offer personalised recommendations, highlight gift-giving ideas, and share heartwarming stories. Don’t forget to sprinkle in some holiday humor and festive visuals!
Day 8. Don’t Forget SMS Santa
Ensure SMS is part of your Christmas marketing channel. Many people may not want to check their emails during the holiday season but SMS marketing campaigns can make a world of difference.
Day 9. Analyse and Adapt
Keep track of your campaign performance and analyse key metrics like total revenue, conversion rates, and retention rates. Adapt your strategy on the fly to optimise your campaigns for maximum impact.

Show your appreciation to customers for their purchases. Send personalised thank-you emails, offer exclusive post-purchase discounts, and encourage them to share their experiences with friends and family.

Christmas is an emotional season. It’s the time of the year when people spend time with families and friends to create memories. Use the emotions the season brings to spice up your marketing campaigns. Include a feeling of nostalgia, joy, or pure happiness as it pays to put heart into your marketing this Christmas season.
