Ecommerce Tips for Valentine’s Day – Vi Commerce

January has finally come to an end. The next big thing ecommerce site owners should look out for is Valentine’s Day. This is one of the finest days of the year where ecommerce businesses can acquire some great revenue. It is unwise not to prepare for this time of the year. After all, Valentine’s comes second busiest after Christmas.

 

Consumers start searching early, especially on mobile devices. According to The National Retail Federation, consumers will spend $20 billion on purchases related to Valentine’s Day in 2016. Back in 2015, Statista conducted a survey on what are the top 10 gifts men and women consider buying for Valentine’s day.

They discovered that the commonly searched keyword for Valentine’s searches on men was flowers with 61.4% and on women was greeting cards with 56.8%.

 

E-mail Customers
E-mail your customers with promotions of the perfect gift idea. Use attractive photos and do not fail to remind them the most romantic time of the year is coming near. It is better to start early because most Valentine’s shopping occur a week before February 14.

 

Add Romantic Touches in your Website
Like I said earlier, make it known to everyone that Valentine’s Day is here. Let them feel it through romantic decorations on your website and heartfelt product descriptions. Come on, don’t be so bitter about this season *winks*. Spread the love!

 

Offer Free Luxurious Gift-Wrapping
Since a lot of customers will rush to your ecommerce site, provide them an option of free gift-wrapping with a personalized note. This will save them time and money, thus, ensuring you a sure-sale.

Guarantee Shipping Before February 14
This is a must-have in your online store this heart’s season. Promote shipping before February 14 all over your site. Shoppers wouldn’t want their gifts to be delivered late so, if you have this then it’s a plus-points to your site. This year’s Valentine’s Day falls on a Sunday which means you could have items shipped on Friday or Saturday if you promote overnight shipping.

 

Gender Specific Showcases
Some customers might have difficulties on choosing the perfect gift for their partners. Make it easy for them by creating a for “him” and “her” category. An extra user-friendly search bar with the ability to filter category, size and price is a must in an online shop too.
