Online stores and retail websites should take this as an indication of the expected traffic boost on the pages that either sell or promote holiday-related content. To leverage the potential of the upcoming Christmas/New Yearâs shopping spree there are several strategies ecommerce websites should consider.
1. Holliday offers
Special offers still represent one of the greatest ways to attract new users and motivate the existing ones to come back to your website. NRFâs Matthew Shay recently illustrated how holiday promotions increase visits and conversions on ecommerce websites. Namely, according to a research that examined usersâ spending during Thanksgiving Day, people are willing to spend both time and money reviewing offers from online retailers.
Therefore, a holiday deal or a coupon can turn out to be an excellent way for an ecommerce business to attract a larger number of users. To make such offers truly work, all the promo and product pages should be designed so as to reflect the appeal of the offer and holiday spirit.
2. Show some holiday cheer

3. Optimize and promote
A rule of thumb in content marketing says that companies should spend 30% of time on creating content and 70% on promoting it. This means that your holiday offer should be put in front as many faces as possible, whereupon some innovative marketing strategies can be quite efficient. For example, launching a new email marketing campaign, doing some extensive social media promotion or even creating an external pull up banner can all drive some new consumers to your store.
However, one of the most important things is to optimize all your promo pages for search engines in order to drive some traffic from search engines in addition to that coming from referrals or social media. Coupled with the excellent themed design, your special offer should drive a significant number of clicks.
Regardless of the type of offer you will come up with for your holiday campaign, several rules outlined above may help you maximize its efficiency. With some creativity, these strategies may well translate into higher conversions and better sales.
