What should you have ready for the Hot Sale? Previous checklist

  • Distribution of budgets by channel and campaign: In addition to having a general budget, you must take into account what budget you are going to allocate to each of your campaigns, considering the historical expense/cost and results of each one.

  • Mailing strategy: Consider that during this period all brands (including your competition) will be sending informative emails with promotions. It is important that you either optimize or integrate email flows , for example, if a user did not open your email the first time, continue trying different subjects and sending different emails every 2 or 3 days.
