Oh yes… it’s that time when you think to yourself…
F**k, Christmas is next week and I’ve not bought a single present!
At least, that’s what I’m currently thinking to myself, and I like to pretend I’m not the only person 😀
So I’m now rushing around trying to buy things last minute.
And when I say “rush around”, I mean frantically searching Amazon, hoping that they’ll have what I need.
The thing that I always forget is cards, and due to the Royal Mail having last postal dates, it’s something I usually just scrape by.
I try to remember what I did before the days of Amazon, Moonpig and next day delivery. I guess I was just more organised because I knew I had to be.
Anyhoo… between Christmas present hunting, Christmas card writing (although I’m trying to persuade Holly she really wants to write all the Christmas cards), we’ve also got a bunch of driving to do in order to see friends before Christmas.
So it seems that the next ten days is going to be ultra-busy.
And I’m sure it will be the same for you!
Which is why I thought I’d give you some Christmas cheer today and show you how to get a nice big bonus on Christmas day.
It’s very simple.
Nobody does it.
And you’re mailing list will love you.
Are you ready…
Sell them something at a discount.
I told you it was simple 😉
Everyone thinks that you shouldn’t email your mailing list on Christmas day because it’s one day of the year that they deserve a rest.
That’s the biggest mistake I’ve ever heard.
Here’s the thang…
Christmas day, for most people, is boring. And when people are bored they browse the internet on their phones, tablets and computers. They’re stuck browsing the internet because… nobody emails them on Christmas day.
There’s no work emails. No emails from friends, and there’s no promotional emails.
Which means if you send them an email, you’ve got their entire inbox to yourself.
And if you’re giving them something that will occupy them, take up some time, and they can get it for an incredible Christmas day offer. They’ll buy it, and thank you for providing them with something to do.
So… think about what times on Christmas day you’re normally not doing anything, and that’s the time to send your email 😉
I’ll probably send one saying Happy Christmas because I don’t have anything to sell.
But if you want to click on the links on the sponsored stories at the top and bottom of this email I would be very appreciative.
P.S. I’m currently in the process of helping an explorer and speaker fix a massive issue with his emailing. Amazon SES keeps shutting him down.
How am I doing it?
Using MailWizz and a custom mail server.
