  • Easter-themed Services: For service-based businesses, think of unique Easter offers. For instance, a spa could offer an “Easter Relaxation Package” or a digital agency might provide a “Spring Social Media Makeover” at a special rate 👌
  • Feature Easter Products: Don’t forget to highlight Easter or spring-related products front and centre on your homepage. Using engaging descriptions and photography to capture the festive mood will also go a long way in promoting your products!

Copywriting and Communications

Special Assets Creation

  • Email Templates: For better conversion rates, design Easter-themed email templates that are visually appealing and mobile-friendly. Use these for all your Easter communications to keep the theme consistent 👍
  • Physical Marketing Materials: If you can, consider creating flyers, posters, and pamphlets that promote your Easter specials. Distribute these in strategic locations or include them in orders leading up to Easter.
  • Product Packaging and Stickers: Also consider custom designing your product packaging or adding Easter-themed stickers to your products for a festive touch 🥳
  • Office and Store Decorations: Last but not least, decorate your physical workspace or store with Easter decorations like:
    • egg garlands
    • pastel balloons
    • spring flowers, and more!

This not only boosts the morale of your team but also creates a welcoming atmosphere for any visiting customers.

Making a comprehensive checklist like this will not only elevate your brand’s visibility during the Easter period but also enhance customer experience. It will make your Easter 2024 one to remember! 🌷🐇

Have a Post-Campaign Review

  • Gather Data and Insights: After your campaign winds down, collect all relevant data — from engagement rates to conversion metrics 📈  👉 Related: Top 5 business automation tools in 2024
