As a boutique owner, you already know the holiday season is a critical time for your business, with a significant impact on annual revenue. According to a survey conducted by Edelman DXI on behalf of Mailchimp in June 2023, two-thirds of marketers estimate that the holiday season drives between 21% to 40% of their company’s annual revenue. In this easy to digest article, we’ll explore six key insights to help you maximize revenue during the holiday season with a personalized approach.

Mailchimp put together an extensive presentation here, but if you don’t have a lot of time, we’ve cherry picked the most relevant insights for women’s boutiques in the article below.

1. Email Marketing Reigns Supreme

Email marketing continues to be a powerful tool during the holidays, preferred by 90% of customers. To make the most of it:

  • Inform customers about sales and remind them of items left in their shopping carts.
  • Combine email efforts with other channels for a comprehensive strategy.

Example: New Collection Marketing Email

2. Customer Data: The Goldmine

Customers are willing to share their data for a personalized experience:

  • Ask for additional details like interests, location, or demographics.
  • Send surveys to gather insights into preferences and satisfaction.

3. Effective Use of Customer Data

While data is abundant, many marketers struggle to use it efficiently. To overcome this:

  • Segment your audience for tailored emails.
  • Leverage AI-powered tools for suggestions and designs.

4. Simplicity Wins

Email remains the primary channel for holiday campaigns:

  • Focus on sharing your core message, promotions, and valuable content.
  • Build trust and humanize your brand with non-sales emails.

5. Engaging the BFCM Weekend

Don’t overlook the weekend between Black Friday and Cyber Monday:

  • Send targeted automations to keep customers engaged.
  • Set expectations for increased email frequency and exclusive offers.
