Who Doesn’t Love a Birthday Present? Birthday Promotions are an effective way to drum up new business
Birthday promotions are gaining popularity once again. They are an excellent way to do smaller-scale marketing for incremental increases in business. Once someone comes in for their birthday present, chances are good that they will come back again and you will have a regular client!
Almost any consumer business can say Happy Birthday to introduce new customers with a promotion. Restaurants have been doing this for years – ½ price entre, buy one / get one free, free desert with your dinner. Other types of businesses can stand out and make offers.
Here is a list of some Birthday Promotion ideas:
- Half-off your next car wash, oil change or manicure
- Buy-one-get-one-free at the stationary or hardware store
- Get a free “something fun” when you buy a dress, get a massage or bottle of wine
- The list goes on; gourmet biscuit with a dog walk, free cake with your grocery delivery, foot cream with your pedicure, a handmade bookmark with your book
Mailing birthday promotions can be as simple and economical as sending a post card.
If your budget allows, a greeting card is effective. Adding an insert can make an even bigger impression. Try to give the envelope a personal touch.
Marketing results show that it is best to run the promotion for longer than just the day of their birthday.
Too many people have busy lives with work and plans with friends and family. (Schedule an oil change on your birthday?) Instead, be the one that extends the fun by offering a promotion any time during their birthday month!
Your birthday promotion mail list is an important factor in the success of your campaign.
For most, it isn’t enough to simply mail to everyone with a birthday that month. Selectors such as gender, age, children and income can narrow your list to include only the best prospects for repeat business.
If you work within a smaller geographic area, you should consider obtaining a list for 3 months at a time. You can do your mailings so they arrive in mail boxes just before the start of the month.
