2. Send an early July 4th email

Start your marketing strategy by sending emails to your existing and potential customers. You can email weeks before sales to build anticipation or email early in the week.

Personalization is an effective way to help your emails stand out to capture attention among many emails. Make your email personalize as much as possible and introduce items they are interested in. You can take advantage of data about demographics, location, total spending, and so on to segment your customer into groups and send them personalized emails.

Now you want to send an email and offer a discount for customers based on their spending. For example, you offer a 20% discount for shoppers between $200 and $500, a 30% discount for people between $500 and $1000, and 50% for those who spend more than $1000. Atom8 will automatically group customers of different spending levels and send emails via an integrated email automation platform (Mailchimp or Klaviyo). 

If you want to generate this data into a Google Sheet for further usage, you need to add an action: “add a row to spreadsheets.”

3. Prepare a special 4th of July discount program

A discount program is an essential thing for July 4th. There are many ways to give customers a good deal without impacting profit margins as vouchers and gift cards, discounts, or free shipping. Also, products could be bundled together so that shoppers buy accessories and related products to make savings. 

However, there will be so many things your team needs to do. Thus, try to minimize executing repetitive tasks manually. You can use an automation tool to help you carry out the program productively. Atom8 app allows online merchants to streamline business operations by automating various workflows. Merchants can schedule multiple events simultaneously at any time.

4. Optimize mobile site

Optimizing mobile websites is essential to every eCommerce business. A survey by Yotpo in 2020 showed that 72% of online consumers are using mobile devices to shop.

Consumers expect a good experience on the mobile site. They need to find what they want quickly, inducing key product information and details on delivery and return. More importantly, they want to checkout and complete purchases quickly without interruption. Therefore, provide your shoppers with a responsive, optimized interface and process.

5. Avoid shopping cart abandonment with automation

On the 4th of July, there are a variety of attractive offers for items. Thus, shoppers often fill their carts fully with a lot of items to find a better deal. But they only place an order for some of them, and the others are abandoned.

However, you can win back shoppers with a shopping cart reminder email. You can integrate your store with email automation apps such as Mailchimp and Klaviyo. One or two hours after the shopper leaves your website, send her a reminder email to continue the transaction. Emails may be made more persuasive by reminding them of promos and with time-limited sales.
