Do a Spring Clean
Of course, you won’t actually be offering cleaning services. This is a great way to clean out some old inventory. Offer discounts on older items to make room for the newer ones. This is a fun way to get people interested in your new items & lucky for you, it will help you clear some space. Perhaps this is a good year to do a spring clean on your marketing in general. Here are some good ideas on how you can do so!
In the next few months, there are plenty of holidays that you can use to help create themes within your marketing strategies. You have St. Patrick’s Day (3/17), the first official day of spring (3/20), April Fool’s Day (4/1), Easter (4/16), Tax Day (4/18), Take Your Child To Work Day (4/27), Cinco de Mayo (5/5) & Mother’s Day (5/14). Think about running specific specials aimed at your target audience, have contests or create events to build traffic around these days. We will feature some fun & exciting ways to do this in the next few weeks!
