Nothing says “It’s Spring!” like Holi. The ancient festival not only celebrates the beginning of a new season (while it farewells winter), but Holi also suggests that its time to enjoy spring’s abundant colors. The tradition represents something even deeper; it bridges social gaps, celebrates the triumph of good over bad, and most importantly renews relationships!

While the populace gears up for this exhilarating festival, you the marketer, can work on replenishing your engagement with your customers. Using the spirit of the festival, you can:

•         Show your appreciation for loyal customers and may be offer them some rewards in form of redeemable coupons, gift vouchers etc. (and boost your festive sales!)

•         Kick start engagement with new customers with the right tone and bring vivid colors

•         Ask the active non buying lot to figure out what might persuade them to start buying from you

•         Work on activating dormant customers

•         Don’t wait for customers to come to you for complaints or appreciation, go ahead and ask them! Even better send out a customer satisfaction survey mailer and gauge the feedback!

Furthermore, you can add a lot of relevant personalization to your communication. For instance, if you know the city / region of your customers, you can target them with region specific Holi offers or greetings (the rituals and celebrations vary from state to state!).  You can encourage your customers to play safe and environment friendly Holi and get bonus points for caring for the environment, in addition to improving customer engagement.

Whatever industry you represent, or type of customers you cater to (B2B or B2C), this is the time to reinforce existing relationships or re bond broken ones.

Though, before you can start thinking about improving engagement, you must identify who your customers are (as individuals), what is the level of their actual engagement with you, and how they prefer engaging with you. The second step is to target them appropriately with the right message via the right channel.

Get in touch to discover how you can identify and target: loyal, active, non-active, and other complex customer segments based on multi channel customer data (purchase history, web behaviour, email behaviour, demographics etc); without having to hire data scientists or loosing your sanity.

Make this Holi festival count!
