Ahh…spring! It’s nearly upon us, and your golf customers are thinking—golf!
As golfers gear up for a new season, now is a great time to really start promoting your product. Think:
Promotion/introduction of new golf products/services.
Overview of how your product can benefit a golfer’s game.
Discounts/savings for new customers, rewards for existing customers.
A spring checklist to help in “preparing for the new golf season”/”what do you need in your bag?”
Social campaigns geared towards prepping for the season—the fundamentals, golf products, exercises, where to go.
A final push to distributors, retailers and pro shops to get products on the shelves for the upcoming season.
Put the luck of the Irish on your side with a St. Patrick’s Day promotion:
"Green" focused social campaigns - post your favorite green golf product, post a pic of your favorite green, most played/toughest green/course, what's your lucky golf item.
Discounts or savings on the holiday or days leading up to it (XX percent off, buy 3 get one free, free XX when you purchase YY)
Special contests to drive traffic to your site/a landing page to collect information,
“Hide a four-leaf clover” somewhere on your site to encourage multiple views and drive sales. Anyone who finds it gets to a special promo code when they click on it/or entered into a drawing for a prize/free golf product.
Develop a St. Patty’s Day specific blog, focusing on some of your company’s traditions or highlight through video/social media posts.
