Mother’s Day will be different this year. For well over two years, families have been kept apart by the raging pandemic. Hugs and kisses have been swapped with pixelated zoom calls and WhatsApp group chats. The time apart has been a reminder to cherish those who are really important in our lives. With the pandemic now in retreat, the prospect of an afternoon tea with Mum or a spa day away is no longer a mirage on the horizon but a very real possibility.
Help your guests reconnect with their loved ones with a well-crafted Mother’s Day campaign.
With less than a week to the day, now is a great time to prepare your website messaging if you have not done so already.
Ingredients of a Mother’s Day campaign
Gift certificates are ideal for Mother’s Day as they allow the recipient to choose the day. Gift givers don’t need to worry about planning a fixed date for their treat but can instead surprise their Mother on the day.
If you have a Mother’s Day menu or special dining arrangements on the day itself, consider promoting these too.
Frantic last-minute gift buying often happens on mobile, so it is important that your campaign is configured for mobile.
We have created a selection of templates to make it easy to configure your Mother’s Day campaign.
All of the templates have been set up to stop displaying after Mother’s Day, so you don’t need to worry about taking the message offline on Monday morning.
If you are feeling adventurous with your campaign, try our new inline format, which embeds the message on your website rather than showing it as an overlay. Chat with our team and we will set up a spot on your home page, dining page, or spa page for the message.
