At Plumrocket we have compiled the catalog of marketing calendars for North AmericaEurope,  Nordic Countries, Asia-Pacific and Latin America. In this post we will start with email marketing calendars for the USA and Canada.

How to Prepare for the Important Shopping Dates

It takes time to prepare for the holidays, so plan ahead to make sure you have put everything in order. Set your expense budget, work on your marketing strategy, update your inventory and plan your stock. Get ready for each important holiday and never miss a good opportunity to increase your sales.

Last thing to remember is that people start looking for gift ideas long before the actual holiday date. Let’s take “Father’s Day” for example. According to the 2016 marketing calendar, the holiday is on June 19. But if you use Google Trends tool, you will see that shoppers start looking for Father’s Day Gifts – one or two months in advance (In April/May).

Use this information to your favor by creating new product categories at your store. An example of such category can be “Best father’s day gifts in 2016” or create a blog article like “Top 10 Father’s Day Gift Ideas”.

Then start email marketing campaign to notify your subscribers about interesting content at your site before the actual holiday begins.
