Doesn’t it seem like Christmas and Black Friday is so far off? Luckily, digital marketers and business owners can take advantage of “Christmas in July”, which is a mid-year shopping frenzy that consumers are expecting.
Whether you run an ecommerce website or you are selling a service, you need to make sure that your company is just as ready for Christmas in July this year:
Know who’s buying
South Africa’s ecommerce market is advanced and people are increasingly shopping online. Know who your customers are and how they will be searching for the products and services you have to offer. Make sure your website is responsive and mobile friendly so that people who are looking for Christmas in July sales can easily browse your website from any device they are using.
Plan your content marketing
How are people going to know what type of sales you are offering if you’re not writing and talking about it? Create a “Christmas in July” tab on your website listing all the products that will be on sale during July. Create blog posts, video clips, social media marketing posts and Instagram pictures of your sale so that you can make sure your message travels as far as possible.
Doublecheck your inventory and distribution channels
You need to prepare your business for the influx of orders and shipments. Make sure you have enough stock for all of the products that will be on promotion and make sure you are able to deliver the products to your customers within a short period of time.
