Easter Marketing Strategies
As Easter quickly approaches, now is the time to begin formulating your social media and marketing efforts. If your direct mail campaigns are already set in stone, many of these can be easily adapted for digital (just ask us how).
By being creative with Easter-themed events, discounts, giveaway promotions, or other special offers – you can help build brand awareness while reaching out to both current and prospective audiences in an effective manner. Get ready for the holiday season now by exploring some innovative Easter marketing strategies that will surely get your brain going!
Easter is the perfect time to offer special discounts and promotions to customers. By the time the holiday hits, consumers will be ready to spend as the Q4 holiday season is well behind them. Easter, especially when it falls in April, is the unofficial start of spring in many households, so it can easily be leveraged across categories like clothing, furniture, outdoor equipment, and so much more.
Whether it’s through online coupons or in-person sales, Easter provides a great opportunity for businesses to increase their revenue, re-engage current customers, and even gain new customers.
Social Media Campaigns
This Easter, make your presence felt in the digital space with enthralling social media campaigns! Create captivating content such as videos, photos, and graphics that are both branded and festive to engage your customers.
Leverage this opportunity to promote any special sales or events you may be hosting for even greater reach. Additionally, why not get creative by offering fun online activities like an Easter Egg hunt related to your business? Post business-relevant images with hidden Easter Eggs on social media for viewers to find. Create a promo code or a sale to the winners! This will incentivize real-world physical attendance at a store near them – it’s a surefire way of making connections between virtual outreach and tangible results!
If you want to keep your brand distant from a specific holiday, Easter can be a great time to ramp up your Q2 sales and efforts. Spring cleaning and new beginnings are two, non-religious themes that can play nicely on social media.
When constructing your Easter advertising, using pastel hues such as baby blue, lilac, pinkish-red, green, white and gold will certainly draw the attention of consumers. Incorporating sale offers and upcoming happenings in these ads can also give people something to look forward to. If you’re aiming for a broader audience that isn’t just focused on Easter alone, then calling it a Spring Campaign might be more suitable.
Utilize audience segmentation tools to improve ad ROI. Narrowing the audience to Households with children can increase your return for Easter shoppers.

Events are a perfect way to attract people to your business or learn more about your organization. Hosting or sponsoring an event can give you the brand awareness you need, especially if you have a strong local presence in your community.
Easter events can be an Easter egg hunt, egg roll, egg toss, egg and spoon race, or even as simple as egg dying or photos with the Easter Bunny. With so many options you are bound to find one you can host without overlapping another business. If you do not have the space or time to plan an event, partner with another local business to help run the event or provide financial assistance for advertising space.
Email marketing is an effective way to reach Easter shoppers and make sure your business stands out from the crowd this Easter season. With Easter-themed emails, you can create buzz around upcoming sales or events, provide special discounts to loyal customers, and even highlight seasonal products. Email campaigns should be tailored for each of your customer segments so that they are more likely to engage with your message. Additionally, using Easter-themed words in your subject line such as “Easter Sale” or “Happy Easter” will help capture people’s attention and increase open rates. Finally, don’t forget to include a call-to-action in every email! This will give recipients clear instructions on what they should do next – whether it’s visiting a website or attending an event – which could result in increased conversions for your business.
