It’s the calm before the storm of spring orders, which makes it the perfect time to get your spring marketing initiatives locked and loaded. Make sure you’re poised to help your customers get the most out of the high season, and you’ll find that your company benefits, too.

Set Up Your Email Marketing Campaigns

Email marketing is the easiest and most effective way for buyers and suppliers to stay in touch with customers, but it’s also easy to let it fall by the wayside while you’re busy. There’s no reason why you can’t set up your campaigns now, though.

Whether you email weekly, monthly, or every other week, go ahead and create upcoming emails in your Email Service Provider (such as MailChimp) and fill in what you can. If you attach availability forms or photos, leave space to pop them in. Once the shells of your campaigns are built, it’ll be much easier to keep up with them.

Spring Marketing Quick Tips for Buyers and Suppliers

Do these things now so you don’t have to thinking about them in April.

  • Check your social media properties to make sure they’re updated with the correct hours. If you’re running on limited hours right now, set a calendar reminder to update your hours when they change for spring.
  • Review information on your website to ensure hours, contact info (including phone number), staffing information, service offerings, and product listings are correct and easy to find.
  • Capitalize on high website traffic in the spring by setting up an email capture form on your website. Then you can stay in touch with customers more often, more easily.
  • Add CTAs (calls to action) throughout you website to encourage people to contact you, start an online order, and sign up for email list.
  • Update your Google My Business page so that customers can find you.
