Free Christmas templates to announce a Christmas sale
Despite the sentimentality, Christmas is the most capitalist holiday of them all.
Around the globe, people rush to offline and online stores to get gifts for their loved ones, coworkers, Secret Santas, and even their pets! This is particularly true for US-based consumers who, traditionally, spend more on Christmas gifts than anyone else in the world. In 2021 alone, US shoppers bought $886.7 billion worth of products during the holiday season. In 2022, this figure is expected to be even bigger!
With such an immense demand for Christmas gifts, it’s no surprise that businesses of all calibers run Christmas sales and craft special holiday offers to attract their customers’ attention. At the end of the day, who doesn’t want to max out their profits and wrap up the year nicely?
Here’s the catch, though. Since every business is trying to market to Christmas shoppers, you must approach your Christmas sale announcement with the utmost responsibility. Everything – from visuals to the offer itself — needs to be well thought out and on-brand.
Some things to include in your Christmas sale announcement post:
- Christmas-themed objects and animations — Christmas trees, snowflakes, gift boxes, ornaments, Santa Claus, etc.
- Words like “sale”, “special offer”, “discount”, etc.
- Sale dates
- The discount amount
