Holidays are cool
So, what can you do to bring more customers into your store? It all starts with a good marketing plan. Get together with your team and brainstorm ideas that lead up to the holiday. It could be a sale, or an event that brings people into the store, like a workshop. Or a meet and greet.
You can use your leads to email your audience. it can start out with a mass email which eventually targets specific people that fulfill certain tasks. Having an email companion like Mailchimp will let you send out mass emails and track them from opening the email to attending.
If you decide to keep track of attendees, Eventbrite does a great job of keeping track of your contacts and other things. If you have a CRM, you can integrate the two fairly easily.
