Prepare your Magento Store for Valentine’s Day and Make the Most of this Event
Valentine’s Day is one of the major events on the retail shopping calendar and one of the largest spending holidays following winter shopping season. According to Statistic Brain, the average annual Valentine’s Day spending is $13.19 billion.
To attract the attention of your customers and make the most of this holiday, you have to start preparing your Magento store right now.
Consider the following ideas for your To Do List, which, by the way, show great results for our own store too.
Big promotion on homepage
Make sure visitors know you have something they will be interested in right from the home page. Prominently displayed Image Sliders on your site is a sure-fire way to boost sales and attract holiday shoppers. Configure the animation, speed, and effects of banners rotation and let this Magento module do the whole job for you.
Grab your visitors’ attention with a limited time offer
You may also want to consider putting in a countdown promotion showing how much time longer the sale/promo is going to last. The visitor will see an eye-catching timer on Home page or any product pages with a small description and call to action text, e.g.: ‘Hurry up, this knock out offer only available for 24 hours’. Countdown has proved to be a great ready-made solution that will do this for you.
