The holidays are right around the corner and we know you're probably busy stocking up on inventory and getting your sales staff ready. According to a new report by Salesforce, shoppers will pay more attention to value and get an earlier-than-usual start to beat price hikes! That means your business needs the tools to easily create promotions and deploy them so they're front and center for your customers. Is your business ready?
The TracPoint Promotion Designer tool allows users to create and track promotions that are customized for your brand within minutes. Using the drag and drop designer, retailers can easily create holiday themed promotions.
To get you started here are 10 holiday promotion ideas to keep your business on track this holiday season:
1. Referral Coupon
It's that time of year where friends and family are crowded around the dinner table for a holiday meal. Allow your customers to easily pass along your promotions to all their friends and family to drive sales and bring in new customers. With our promotions module you can track shares and redemptions to create your own referral program around any promotion.
2. Limited time offer.
Our tool also lets you add a countdown timer, creating a sense of urgency with your customers. Good examples of this would be a "Black Friday" promotion good for that day only. Like the title of this blog, do a "12 days of Christmas" promotion, with a special, one day promotion each day leading up to Christmas.
3. Friends and family discount
Give your employees a special gift that they can pass along to friends and family for the holiday season with an exclusive friends and family promotion.
4. Black Friday is back
Black Friday has looked very different the last few years. With the pandemic cooling down and inflation heating up, shoppers will be shopping early and looking for deals. Our drag and drop designer allows you to easily create Black Friday promotions and deploy them to your customers via your own custom branded app, social media, sms, email and more!
5. Donation/charity program
The holidays are a great time to give back to those in need. Give 10% off when customers bring in canned foods for local pantries, or put together a backpack drive for kids during your back to school campaigns.

After the holidays are over create a coupon that encourages trade ins. For example, trade in your old device, and we'll give you a full trade in value plus $50 in store credit!
