Appeal to Emotions

The best way to do so is by focusing on after sale customer service. Keep a track of your customer complaints and returns, so that no negative review can harm the reputation of your brand. Also,keep the return policies and procedure simple, for your customers to easily understand. This helps build a trust among your customers for your brand.

Use Your Loyal Client Database

Do you have a database of your clients? It's time to take advantage of it! Send an email with a coupon or special offer for customers who already know you.

Offer Specific Products to Give as a Gift

Offering gifts can instantly generate great customer delight. For selecting a gift, consider these two things: the product looks good and its price is affordable for you. You can even transform some of your cheap yet attractive products as gift pieces and offer them to drive sales of expensive ones.

As you can see, most of these strategies talk about giving something unusual and special to the consumer, be it a content, a gift, a promotion, an experience. Whether you choose one or all of the above strategies to attract your customers this holiday season, remember whatever you do, make them feel special.
