Every ecommerce brand knows the importance of creating themed campaigns around annual holidays and celebrations.
Whether it's Back to School, Valentine's Day, Summer Sale or Black Friday, marketing teams put a huge amount of time and effort into creating assets for each occasion, be it catalogs, banners and more. But, despite all this effort, most brands then hide these campaign assets away where customers can rarely find them.
To draw attention and interest to your campaigns, you need to put them front and centre of your online store and highlight them across all paid and owned channels. You need to create an impact straight away by building campaigns designed to convert.
Use your online catalogs to promote your campaigns and tailor them to suit your theme. Use a selection of products and visuals, like photos and videos, to encourage customers to engage and insert product links directly into your campaigns so shoppers can immediately act on their inspiration.
You can then promote your catalogs across your online store, social media and email newsletter to name a few. Highlight your catalog on your homepage or link directly to a promotion banner from a Facebook ad.
