Make Use of Instant Buying Options
In addition to the proliferation of mobile shopping and emails, another shopping habit from the pandemic era has now become even more commonplace in 2022: the Instant Buying option. Made popular on TikTok and Instagram, the Instant Buy allows you to integrate your email with buy now buttons that hook right into a user's shopping cart. Leveraging flash sales or time-limited discounts is a great way to cement in the customers' mind that they "absolutely have to have it right now" before it's gone.
Add In a Personalized Touch
Personalized jewelry is also a hot item over the holidays -- but what about personalized emails? Email, as old as it is, is still more popular than social media or other forms of advertising, and it's also one of the few to allow for a much larger degree of personalization.
These days, however, getting your customers' attention means more than just adding their first name to the email. It also shows you've been paying attention. Suggest items that pair well with something they have in their cart, or offer suggestions based on previous shopping habits. These days, emails are highly customizable and allow you to create a closer relationship with your customers in a way that shows that you truly value their business!
