Mother’s Day

9 Mar


Mother’s Day – (UK) – 15th March

Just a gentle reminder to our UK store owners to buy your wonderful mother a card and a nice bunch of flowers for Sunday (15th March).
It is also a great time to run a Mother’s Day promotion on your store.
Check out a few of our tips on how you can  promote your store :

Gift Sets

Would a bundle of your products make an ideal gift ?  Put a few of your relevant products together, you could call it your “Ultimate Gift Pack for Mum,”  make it a more attractive deal by making the bundled price a better deal than buying the individual items.

Gift Wrapping

You could offer a gift wrapping service for items you sell for Mother’s day.  Use Product Options  to charge for the service, or offer it for free and use the checkout forms feature to allow your customers to write a personalised message to their mothers.

Email your Newsletter list

Send an email out to your newsletter mailing list to promote your special offers or products that would be ideal as a Mother’s Day gift.   You could use a subject line similar to “Find the perfect Mother’s Day gift here”.

Coupons & Vouchers

Create a coupon code via the Marketing > Coupons & Vouchers section of your Freewebstore Control Panel and promote it on your social media channels.  Time specific offers usually have the biggest impact !

Social Media

Use your Facebook pages and Twitter feed to promote your special offers leading up to Mother’s Day.  Could you enter your followers into a free Mother’s Day gift draw if they share one of your posts ?

Delivery Times

Do you need to inform your customers of the last order date for delivery in time for Mother’s Day ?  Make sure you put this information in a prominent position on your store as you do not want to upset customers who miss the deadline because they couldn’t find the information on your store.
