We selected some practical ideas from strategies carried out by companies that are or have been RD customers and that can serve as inspiration for your business. Follow the examples, illustrated with images from the respective Father’s Day campaign.
1. Create a practical promotion to promote your products
In order to publicize its product mix, our client Bioscience Cosméticos has created a promotion in which a Father’s Day kit will be raffled among the participants who convert to the Landing Page created
2. Promote your material to save time capturing Leads
To save time, boosting materials on social media is a great option. Bioscience published the Landing Page on Facebook and invested in Facebook Ads.
3. Create benefits for those who participated in the action
Take advantage of captured Leads and offer them a benefit. After all, they are already relating to your brand and have high expectations.
The idea of offering a special discount for the purchase of products on Bioscience’s e-commerce even for those who were not lucky enough to win the kit is a way to create empathy with the public and also increase sales.
4. Make the decision easier by suggesting products at different prices
The eCommerce Pelas Barbas created a targeted Email Marketing for customers, with a special selection of products for the beard, which offers a 20% discount on purchases on Father’s Day.
5. Create a quick quiz to grow your base and generate engagement
What style of beer best suits your father? This was the theme of the quiz created by The Public House, of online beers.
Aiming to increase the customer base and generate engagement, the brand created the quiz, published it on social media and sponsored the content to reach more people.
Leads captured by the action received a discount coupon for purchases on the website.
6. Create a culture contest with simple mechanics
Right now you need focus. Leave aside contests that involve many actions such as liking, tagging a friend, sharing, creating stories, etc.
Here it will be necessary to speed up and reduce barriers. Make a simple mechanic, that with just one or two actions the person is already participating.
The National Cachaçaria created a cultural contest for its customers with a simple mechanics of participation: you answer the email with a picture and is participating.
7. Customize your website for the Father’s Day campaign, offer free gifts and discounts with a deadline
Dress your website with images and texts that refer to the Father’s Day campaign and have to do with your brand. Otherwise, your website may look outdated.
Select best-selling products for this audience and highlight them to make the buying decision easier. That’s because people like to know what the most popular products are and what they like the most.
Two other tips to boost sales in ecommerce were used by Aubra Joias: offer gifts and set special discounts for certain periods. This creates a sense of urgency when purchasing to gain these benefits.
8 – Rewarm your contacts with exclusive actions
That’s what Espoleta Buffet decided to do! He took advantage of the date to warm up the Leads of his contact base, reinforcing the brand and stimulating negotiations.
Through an email campaign, the company sent a message to parents (and made it clear that the mothers would also like it).
In the email, a special offer was made: whoever hired the company to hold their party until a certain date would get a case of beer.
The email didn’t deliver right away what the gift was, which caused 22% of people who opened the email to click on the link to find out.
6 Good Email Marketing Examples to Inspire Your Father’s Day Campaign
Above, you’ve already seen some examples of Email Marketing integrated into the Father’s Day campaign. Below, we separate 6 more examples of companies that made great use of this type of communication to impact consumers. Check out the strategies they used:
1. Product selection
Making a product selection is a good way to help undecided customers and can also be a way to encourage cross-selling if you combine different products.
Lohn Bier’s idea, for example, was to combine beers and their ideal glasses in an email aimed at beer parents.
2. Attractive subject
To get Leads to open your message, one idea is to bet on the attractive subject. This, by the way, is an item that is worth working on in your Father’s Day Email marketing campaign, as it is the first contact that the person will have with your offer. The tip is to include numbers (written with numbers, never in full) to draw attention.
The Tok & Stok, for example, soon brought the title the minimum value of the gifts that the special collection of Father’s Day contains – “from R $ 8.90.” This is a good tactic, after all, who doesn’t like a good, cheap gift? In the body of the email, the tips are separated by theme — coffees, beer, wine — and are endorsed by experts, which lends credibility and reinforces what we said above about product selection.
3. Search suggestions
In addition to product suggestions, another idea is to bring categories for the Lead to do the research on their own.
The strategy is usually used on commemorative dates by Bing and Buscapé, which makes sense for search engines, but it can also be adopted by ecommerce’s that have many products available.
In addition to the selection of products, the differential brought by Reserve in its Father’s Day Email marketing campaign was the possibility of customizing products with a phrase.
T-shirt combos, which combine adult and children’s versions, also encourage cross-selling.
5. Discount coupon
How about selecting a group of products for the Father’s Day campaign and offering a discount coupon that can be applied to them for your base? The Liverpool t-shirt brand used this strategy, in addition to linking to content with tips for gifts for the date.
6. Minimalist email
Eliminating unnecessary elements can be a way to help Leads focus on offers. This email from Apple follows the motto “less is more” that accompanies the brand identity, with good quality photos that highlight the characteristics of the products offered.
