Businesses are extremely busy around the holidays and New Year’s. Retail is at its height, but other industries are slowing. However, it is critical for every firm to end the year on a good note and begin the year on a high note, which includes outstanding sales.
When there is so much competition, it is critical to understand what will increase sales and keep customers satisfied.
Many businesses may struggle with sales at the tail end of the holiday season. It’s unavoidable when customers’ budgets tighten due to the increased number of people and occasions to buy for. However, if you organise your December-January season right, the quieter weeks will have less of an influence on your firm.
Before you decide to discount as part of the Boxing Day sales, consider whether a large discount will have a positive or negative impact on consumer impressions of your brand. Our company, Owlet Baby Care, creates high-quality baby items at a reasonable price. So, discounting excessively at any time of year would dilute our brand image and have an impact on our brand equity.
Instead, we opt to collaborate with other businesses that complement our aesthetic and our target audience. To boost sales, we also provide more incentives and prizes with purchase throughout the holiday season and into the new year. A charming Christmas tree-inspired design for our Smart Sock is more likely to pique our social media followers’ interest than a 10% discount.
Having said that, the baby care industry is less seasonal than others because the items are needed by new and expecting parents all year. If you believe your company will profit from offering goods at a cheaper price to promote sales in December and January, make sure you can still give the same high-quality customer service you would without a promotion. If a buyer realises that your company is running late, has equipment problems, or that your employees are unskilled or weary, the excitement of getting a lower price is rapidly displaced.
Consumers are overwhelmed with messaging throughout the end-of-year sales season, so keep what your customer is going through in mind. Maintain realistic expectations for the busy season, and strive to develop marketing methods that will make your sale stand out from the crowd. Find numerous ways to make an effect, but offering value to the customer should be your top priority. Consider what your customer is looking for, make it easy for them to locate, and explain them how purchasing from your company will benefit them.
Significant price discounts can be a useful technique for attracting customers, but with Black Friday on the horizon, it’s critical to prevent a race to the bottom. Due to massive sales volumes, large shops can profit on modest margins, but this is challenging for smaller enterprises.
Instead than viewing the Christmas season in isolation, consider how it might help your year-round sales plan. As new clients visit your store throughout the holiday season, whether through pricing or otherwise, this presents an excellent opportunity to build long-term relationships. Loyal consumers are far more valuable to your business than bargain hunters.
When a sale is made, client data is collected to begin the process of re-engagement. In exchange for a discount or a digital receipt, customers will gladly submit their names and email addresses. This can then be used to distribute vouchers throughout the year.
Digital tools are by far the greatest way to record data and assist in the development of loyalty schemes. A cloud-enabled tablet allows shop employees to swiftly enter customer credentials in-store or on the fly, connect purchase details to their record, and then choose how to reward consumers with online punch card programmes, special discounts, or birthday gifts.
Making the most of every client interaction over the Christmas season can provide presents for the rest of the year, especially if considered as an important component of an annual customer acquisition plan.
