Sincerely. Valentine’s Day is a good opportunity to drive sales and engage customers. But it’s not often easy to find out what kind of promotion to run, and how to start thinking about it.

Cash in

A point is clear: it worth to run a promotion at Valentine’s Day, because men spends $158 at this occasion, and people spend not only to the significant other, but also on pets, classmates and coworkers. So small value products and services have a significant advantage!

Unsexy brands can also try to run a V-day promo, but e.g. a windows&doors retailer definitely needs to think hard when crafting the marketing tagline. “Have better windows and keep the sound of live inside the flat!” – What about his one? Sexy enough to catch attention?
