Here are the best attention-grabbing templates for you to easily set up successful message marketing campaigns.

Although one of the most joyous occasions of the year, Christmas can also be extremely taxing–particularly for those who don’t plan their holiday communications well in advance. Plus, when the competition is this intense, planning your message marketing campaigns early enough may make all the difference for your brand and ensure excellent campaign performance.

Without further ado, let’s look at the top message templates we recommend using this holiday season. You’ll be able to quickly adapt them to your brand’s needs while delighting your customers before they head off into the new year.

8 types of holiday marketing templates to use in 2022

1. Let your customers know it’s a countdown to Christmas deals

During this time of the year, it goes without saying that everyone will be offering the best deals to boost their sales. That means that you need to have a solid messaging marketing plan in place —and well in advance. Be sure to enable your customers to reply to your messages or reach out to you should they have any queries. Considering that 75% of consumers prefer to engage with businesses over chat channels, you’ll be setting yourself up for success. Ultimately, this will nurture sales—ah, the power of two-way communication.

Planning in advance and enabling two-way communication will allow you to do the following things.

  • Create hype around your campaign
  • Respond to customer queries in real-time
  • Help customers make purchase decisions
  • Measure purchase intent
  • Secure early sales

Check out these templates you can use to mentally prepare your customers for the coming Christmas sales.
