Spread Some Business Love This Christmas

Holly Stibbon, Smart Messenger Email Marketing

2020 has been a tough year for many businesses, so why not spread some joy this festive season? Christmas emails are a great way to thank business contacts for their custom and let them know your plans for the coming year.

Smart Messenger is here to lend a hand and have released their Free Christmas Email Templates early to allow you to get planning your Christmas email campaigns!

 

Plan ahead

Don't leave planning your Christmas emails too late. People have a lot to think about over the Christmas period and may even take extra days off around Christmas. Ensure your recipients are aware and receive your messages in good time. It will make things easier for you further down the line and demonstrates to your customers that you are prepared.

Smart Messenger’s Free Christmas Email Templates really help you to take the legwork out of creating your campaigns as our festive templates are all ready to go. Simply add your content and logo and you are away!

Show your appreciation

Christmas emails provide a good opportunity to thank people for their custom over the previous year and let them know about your plans for the year ahead. With the events of 2020, it has never been more important to show appreciation for your customers' support. Saying thank you builds upon your relationship with your customers and when people feel appreciated that helps to build loyalty. Those who feel their custom is appreciated are much more likely to exercise loyalty by doing more business with you.

Tell your story

2020 has certainly been a 'different' year with many businesses needing to adapt to changes quickly. An end-of-year roundup of how your product or service has helped customers throughout the year makes for great reading! Give real examples of how you have helped others. People love a good story! 

The people within your business are also important telling the story of how you have supported your employees throughout the year is. By sharing these behind-the-scenes stories you are showing customers what they could be doing in their businesses and humanising your own. It has been an interesting year for all of us, so why not share your story? 

Support a charity

Charities have had a rough time this year. Your Christmas emails are the perfect place to provide support for charities, you may ask for others to donate or make a donation yourself and promote the charity and their good work. You may even like to try something fun to help fundraise, such as a Christmas jumper day or quiz. Things may look a little different this year, but there is no reason we can’t all have a little fun, especially for the sake of charity!

Festive opening times

Avoid any confusion for customers by letting them know early on, and reminding them regularly, when and how they can expect to get in touch with you over the festive period.
