Want to fit in a last-minute holiday promotion? We realize it happens and have put together some ideas for holiday text sweepstakes promotions you can still run this year. Take a look at 5 ideas that are sure to resonate with your customers.
1. What I Really Want for Christmas Sweepstakes
The holidays are all about giving, but sometimes we miss out on getting something for ourselves. This year, you can give your customers a chance to get the gifts they really want by offering them a prize of their choosing. You can offer to fulfill their “wish list” or registry of favorite things at your store or site, offer a collection of items they can customize or simply give prize options they can choose from (Ex: choose from our new line of iHome tech gear of up to $500).
2. Black Friday Online Shopping Spree
Most people are looking for a way to beat the crowds on Black Friday. So why not give them an advantage by offering an early Black Friday online shopping spree? They can enter your text sweepstakes to win a $500 shopping spree. Let them choose items the day before to ensure they get what they want.
To boost exposure for your brand once the text sweepstakes has ended, encourage them to share all of the cool items they got from your store on social media.
3. Multi-Day Giveaway
What better way to keep the excitement going all season long than to host an ongoing text sweepstakes with daily and weekly prizes?
To make sure entrants continue to participate and to draw in new entrants, offer bigger and better prizes each week until the holiday season is over.
4. Holiday Party Sweepstakes
With all of the holiday festivities going on, why not host your own or offer to host an event for the winner? They’d get exposure to your products or services whether you host your own in-store event or take the party to their home.
From an in-store concert to a chocolate tasting, you can create an exclusive holiday event for a few winners and their friends or families. Another option is to giveaway a holiday party package with a catered meal and entertainment at the winner’s home. This can work as a New Year’s party as well.
5. Post-Holiday Getaway
Let’s be honest–the holidays can be stressful. To give your customers a much-needed break, offer a post-holiday getaway. A spa day? A weekend cruise? The idea is to let them wind down and relax in your venue or with an experience that includes your product or service. This is a great way to get exposure for your brand and can result in a shared experience on social media.
