A Few More Mother’s Day Email Tips
1. Send promotions in advance
Best performing email campaigns are generally deployed more than a week ahead of the holiday. Given that gifting purchases are usually done ahead of time, it’s advisable to get your promotions in front of the consumers early.
Kickoff the Mother’s Day email campaigns 2 to 3 weeks ahead of Mother’s Day. For the subsequent email campaigns, sequence them at appropriate intervals (e.g., 7, 3, and 2 days) to remind your customers of the pending promotion.
2. Include “Mom” or “Mother’s Day” in the Mother’s Day subject lines
Mother’s Day references appeal to the consumer emotions. So include these keywords in your subject for maximum impact (and open rates of course)!
3. Think broader in terms of target audience
Recent consumer trends on Mother’s Day show that gifting is not only reserved for Moms. In fact, of those surveyed 62% of the adult will purchase a gift for their Moms, while the 38% of them will also gift to other Moms in their life – including wife, daughter, sister, etc.
So, keep that in mind as you plan out your email campaign, as you’ll have a much wider audience to target.
4. Savings and offers
The theme of holiday savings is still strong in most Mother’s Day campaigns. So use sales and offers strategies to your advantage. If you do plan a special sale for Mother’s Day, promote it early, so your customers are aware of it as they are researching for the perfect gift for Mom.
That’s a Wrap
A key part of successful Mother’s Day marketing is finding powerful subject lines that emphasize shopper’s connection with their Mom or other Moms in their life.
