Cupid is on his way to town because love is in the air! Valentine’s Day is approaching, which means that people are preparing to show their love to their friends, family, and significant others. While some people may choose to buy flowers and chocolates for their loved ones, others prefer to give their partners something more unique. With so much spending, anyone serious about driving sales must launch and promote new product designs in time for Valentine’s Day. It’s time to start brainstorming Valentine’s Day print on demand campaign ideas.
Valentine’s Day’s Changing Face
This year is different with pandemic-related travel restrictions preventing people from physically spending time. Ages 23–29, are the most likely generation to spend money on Valentine’s Day because they account for the majority of singles looking for love or couples settling down. When it comes to spending money on loved ones, Gen X comes in second, followed by the baby boomer generation. Millennials and Generation Z, on the other hand, aren’t as interested in over-the-top romantic content. However, they’re just having fun with Valentine’s Day and aren’t interested in over-hyping their plans.
However, 50 percent of 13–36-year-olds still look for Valentine-themed sales and promotions, so don’t be afraid to embrace the holiday. It simply needs to be done in a way that emphasizes all of the meaningful relationships that people may have.
Valentine’s Day Marketing Ideas for your Print on Demand Business
1. Include Valentine’s Day themes in your niches.
Incorporate Valentine’s Day themes into a previously launched design or campaign. Embedding your new Valentine’s Day designs into previously successful campaigns will increase their chances of reaching interested buyers. Consider resurrecting previous successful campaigns and incorporating new Valentine’s Day ideas. Consider increasing your advertising budget for this special occasion. Valentine’s Day is a big deal in the world of print on demand.
2. Launch Valentine’s Day-themed campaign.
You could run a variety of Valentine’s Day-themed promotions. You could go the ‘couples’ route and run a unique 2 for one offer or couple’s special. Alternatively, why not play on the date? Valentine’s Day is always on February 14th, so offer a 14 percent discount or run a promotion on your top 14 products. It is a great way to generate interest in your print on demand business because it is sure to elicit strong feelings. Creating an emotional connection with customers is one way to gradually build brand loyalty, a common goal for small businesses.
3. Advertise Your Offers Ahead of Time
In-store advertising and flyer distribution ensure that everyone is aware of the specials you’re offering in the holiday. Everyone enjoys a good sales pitch, especially since the January sales are still a year away! Change your branding so that your marketing materials are still instantly recognizable and appropriate for Valentine’s Day.
4. Construct a Seasonal Landing Page
One of the central concepts of marketing is to make it as simple as possible for customers to purchase from your company. Having all of your Valentine’s print on demand products, offers, or specials on one convenient web page is a great way to accomplish this. It is an excellent way to incorporate Valentine’s Day into a landing page without alienating or repelling customers.
5. Engage in Social Media Interaction
If you want to increase engagement over Valentine’s Day, there are plenty of features on social media that are great for quick wins. Polls are one of these, and they are standard on most social media sites. You may have used polls in the past to gather feedback on your products or to help you decide on a future course of action. However, the reason they are so effective is that people enjoy them! So, pose some amusing Valentine’s Day-themed questions and watch the votes pour in.
6. Remind people of the importance of self-love.
While most retailers continue to focus on people purchasing Valentine’s Day gifts for their loved ones, many brands have recognized the opportunity to reach a broader audience by making their Valentine’s Day offerings about pampering and “me time.” Make being single seems like a good thing. Until recently, single people were the unnoticed demographic on Valentine’s Day. On the other hand, this holiday is an excellent opportunity to remind people to show love to the person who needs it the most—themselves.
