4th of July is almost here and now is the best time to unleash your creativity and launch your most colorful and exciting campaigns so far. Use both SMS and email to ensure all your subscribers learn about your festive promos.

Consider launching a limited-time flash sale with massive discounts, a BOGO offer, or a special festive bundle. The goal is to provide your customers with everything they might need to host the perfect party this Independence Day. At a reasonable cost, of course. ;) 

For SMS: Help your holiday shoppers prepare for the upcoming festivities by sending them a brief and actionable text message with your 4th of July sales and discounts. Don’t forget to include your store’s name to make your message more personal and a link to your offers to help customers quickly browse through your products and choose easily, just in time for the big celebration. 

For email: Focus on your subject line as it can make all the difference between an average and a high-converting email campaign. Keep it actionable yet brief and straightforward. Add a hint to your special offer, and don’t forget the patriotic vibe!

“4th of July deals starting from $4”, “Celebrate freedom with free shipping”, ”4th of July sale this week only”, “Celebrate Independence Day with free shipping on all orders”.
