Valentine’s Day marketing ideas & tips

Before we get into the home improvement marketing ideas for Valentine’s Day, a few dos and don’ts for your messaging:

Keep it short and sweet

This is a best practice for any customer communication. Less is more! Less information to retain means higher retention; and the simpler you make it, the more likely you will be to get a response.

Personalize it

Personalization is also a must for any and all customer communication, but especially on Valentine’s Day when you’re expressing appreciation. Otherwise, it won’t seem genuine. One way to achieve this is by segmenting your lists so you can cater your messaging based on how long they’ve been with your business, what services they’ve used, and more.

This is why audience segmentation is a key feature to look for in a texting platform.

Be conversational

This is one of the simplest and most powerful marketing strategies today. Conversational tone is what homeowners now want and expect in their interactions with you businesses. Talking like you’re talking to a friend makes you more real, more relatable, and more trustworthy. Plus, it saves you time and makes your messages easier to read and more likely to get responses

Include something of value

A friendly customer greeting is just fine, but if you really want to drum up engagement, include a special offer. Whether that’s a discount off your services or even a $5 gift card to Starbucks, a little something can go a long way in keeping you top of mind—and their top choice.
