ValentineÂs Day Marketing 101 is a newly-released special report that teaches small businesses how to sell more gift items for ValentineÂs Day. Whether youÂre a gift basket retailer, a spa or a florist looking to increase sales, the report covers in detail when to launch your promotional message and provides detailed statistics as to who is actually buying on ValentineÂs Day and what are the most popular gift items.
ÂThe most common reason why businesses donÂt see an increase in ValentineÂs Day sales is because they donÂt start marketing their special offer until itÂs too late,Â said Sharron Senter, report author and Boston-based marketing consultant and speaker. ÂTrue, most gift-givers will buy their gift the week of ValentineÂs Day; however, most will start considering what theyÂre going to give as a gift a few weeks before they make their actual purchase. And this is exactly when your promotional message must be visible. Plus, you need to build in extra time for shipping if youÂre selling online.Â
Inside the report, Senter details more than 20 low-cost ValentineÂs Day marketing and sales strategies to implement thatÂll help businesses experience a revenue increase during one of the most popular holidays. And hard statistics of what lovers, friends and family members are really buying this ValentineÂs Day season.
The 14-page downloadable report in PDF format sells for $23 and can be purchased online at http://www.sharronsenter.com/fs_valentines_day.shtml
