Running a Competition

Running a competition is a quick way to generate sales and grow your email list during the holiday season. To run a successful competition, you need to consider factors like the prize, the number of winners, and how long the competition will run. Additionally, it’s important to promote the competition through various channels and allocate a budget for promotion. Running a competition not only attracts new customers but also engages your existing customer base.

Getting Personal with Your Efforts

Using personalization in your email marketing can help you win back lapsed customers. Many businesses overlook the value of their customer database and focus solely on acquiring new customers. By treating your best customers like VIPs, you can build stronger relationships and encourage repeat purchases.
