Why is an ecommerce marketing calendar important?

Used properly, an Ecommerce Marketing Calendar will help a marketeer to organise their work and bring topical relevance to campaigns. Having a focus on relevant dates will help customer engagement and improve sales conversion.

How to use an ecommerce marketing calendar?

Look through the calendar dates and select those that relate to your target customer demographic. Then use those dates for email shots, blog posts, social media campaigns and events that tie together your customer interests with the specific focus for the calendar day or period along with specific products around which you have special promotions.

How to Increase sales conversions using an ecommerce marketing Calendar

Use the calendar event/focus to target new channels or ways to promote what you sell. For example, if the event relates to a particular hobby then consider targeting a popular blog that is active on that subject area.

Organise sales campaigns around an Ecommerce Marketing Calendar

Group calendar events into niche themes and then try to develop a group following targeting special interest groups.

How much of a Marketing Calendar changes each year?

Around 20% of the Ecommerce Marketing Calendar changes each year. This is usually because an event is tied to a particular day of the week.

How to maintain your Ecommerce Marketing Calendar

Keep this page as a linked favourite and check back for updates.

The INDEZ commerce Marketing Calendar is a great way to make your marketing campaigns more interesting and engaging. Theme them around the different seasons, the months and even specific days throughout the year. If you sell sportswear then having a newsletter that relates to the Rugby Five Nations or Wimbledon will aid engagement. Add a splash of colour to coincide with India’s Holi Day or focus on lighting during Diwali Day. Make some noise for Guy Fawkes night or offer a frightening bargain on Dios Los Muertos day. Offer something blue and white for St Andrews Day as well as anything associated with stars or stripes for US Independence day.
