This way you can gain more insight into their likes and dislikes. Then you can make a company or promotional changes accordingly. Never known to fail!
#3 Free Treats
Direct your attention toward up selling to your customers via Halloween trinket giveaways. You could give away free treats or costume accessories when they buy two or more items. Most Halloween themed give away items are very inexpensive so why not?
#4 Live Social Media Event
Send details to clients on your SMS list encouraging them to attend a live social media event. In the event tell your customers to expect random door prizes for responding. Doing this will turn out to be an excellent way of obtaining market research about your client base.
#5 Ghost Tag
If you operate a store, host a scavenger hunt. Tag certain items with a ghost tag that contains an SMS number they text in for a special deal on that object. It will encourage your customers to come by and claim multiple deals. Also, this will create an interactive environment that will be very appealing to customers to take part in.
