When it comes to the sales you have throughout the year, it can seem like you’re competing with everyone else for buyers’ attention. And in reality, it’s true. Because of this, it’s essential that you try out various and creative ways to promote your sales so they stand out from the competition.
Promote it on Social Media
Social media is one of your greatest tools when it comes to promoting your company sales. Don’t over-post. Instead use your social media accounts to do countdowns to your sales. And in order to not overload your followers’ feeds, post some of these countdown posts on your stories instead of to your actual account.
You should also think about encouraging different influencers or individuals to post about items they purchase from your company’s sales. Having these individuals promote your products on social media will influence others to take a look at your sale as well.
Place Signs Outside
If you’re situated in the area of a shopping mall, having a visible eye-catching sign is essential to draw in people coming to shop. If your shop opens directly to the outdoors, it’s even more important that your sign be durable and sturdy. Because they’re durable, metal signs are ideal for advertising outdoors.
Metal signs won’t blow over in the wind. And because of their metallic quality, they also can add a rustic or even a modern industrial vibe to your space that can really draw people in.
Use Email Advertising
When it comes to email advertising, it’s important that you don’t overdo it. Sending too many emails every week will automatically turn off your customer and increase the likelihood that they unsubscribe from your emails all together or relegate your emails to their junk folder.
On the other hand, if you only send emails when you have a really big sale, those emails can actually prove incredibly effective at promoting those sales. Make your emails short and sweet with multiple links throughout the email that take the reader to your website where they can start shopping.
Figuring out how to perfectly promote your sales isn’t easy. Implementing these ideas is a good first step, but make sure that you think carefully about your target group. If you cater to mainly in-person shoppers vs. online shoppers, you may find that you need to invest more in your signage and window displays than on online elements or vice versa.
