IV. Create a unique design for your store

As for any special event, the design of your website is essential. It must bring your customer into the ambiance of this particular day. You don’t need to redesign your whole store only for this day. Only a banner on the home page advertising your special offers and a bit of design on your product’s image will do a great job.

V. Create a Valentine’s day gift guide

Did you know that Valentine’s day is not only about love and sharing? It’s also a lot of time and pain to come up with the perfect gift idea for the loved one. As a merchant, your job is to help your customers. So, offer them a free Valentine’s day guide to help them find the perfect product on your catalog without spending hours browsing and comparing your products.

Keep in mind that for this day, you don’t communicate directly with your customers but with their loved ones, who may not know your products. A gift guide is a powerful tool for your Valentine’s day marketing, and it’s the perfect place to advertise your coupon codes.
