Summer Sales Marketing Actions to Implement

Now, let’s talk about some powerful actions you can implement regarding strategy to cover the most meaningful aspects of your campaign. 🌊🌞🫶

1. Create Limited Edition Products and Promos

There’s no doubt summer is a golden opportunity to reinvent and give your brand a colorful and refreshing twist. Launching seasonal products/services and promotions is a great starting point to attract new and existing customers. 

For example, if you’re a POD seller, you can squeeze the summer lemon tree to launch a seasonal product line inspired by the elements of this hottest season. Additionally, you can complement this action by offering special discounts, hot deals, and even freebies. Whether it’s for freeing up your store from last quarter’s stock or incentivizing these new seasonal launches.

For example, you can publish some mysterious posts about upcoming launches and include a countdown and special discounts for the ones who join early. Then move to the preparations of making relevant and helpful content. Whether it’s summer-themed blog posts, seasonal emails with special deals, or social media posts that will refresh your channels. 

Last but not least, remember to include in all your online materials summer-themed emojis, words, phrases, and hashtags -on social media- to reach a broader audience.

5. Check Out What Worked for You in Previous Years

In case you’ve implemented a summer sales campaign in the past, taking note of what worked and what did not might be helpful to enhance this year’s campaign. For example, ask yourself: how much anticipation did your campaign require? Was the timing good, or did you need more time to execute all the actions you wanted to achieve? Overall, how was the performance of your campaign? 

By analyzing your data from past events, you can get clarity regarding this new planning process. Plus, it’ll guide you about the holidays and campaigns worth investing your time, money, and efforts in and which ones are best to leave behind. 

Even if this is your first year planning a summer sales campaign, no worries! It’s a great chance to keep track of these events to know how to handle them in the upcoming year.
