3 Ways To Ace Your Single’s Day Campaign Without Huge Discounts

We’re just TWO days away from Single’s Day (11/11) and most of the eCommerce platforms have already begun their crazy campaigns and sales.

If you’re still fretting on how to hop on the Single’s Day train, we’re here to help. Without huge discounts, you can still create a good single’s day campaign that can drive your sales.

Here are THREE ways to do it:

Gamify Your Campaign

Games are fun, interactive and engaging, which means gamifying your single’s day campaign increases the traffic and virality of it. You don’t have to create complicated games or complex mechanics. Sometimes, the simpler the better, such as a subpage or a microsite.

Case in point: Lazada.

Social sharing has always been effective, and Lazada utilises it well with its gamification of Single’s Day. By encouraging users to share deals to lower the price, it managed to spread quickly and effectively, with a simple mechanic.

Know The Trends & Audiences

You don’t have to create cringy ads or have insane discounts on every product. Take some time to learn and understand the trends and users’ behaviour of eCommerce sales.

For instance, women often focus on clothing and fashion items, while men look at electronic and digital products. Hence, you should tailor your discounts and promotions to the trends, and you will have yourself a successful Single’s Day sale.

Get Creative With The Single’s Experience

Single’s Day is about individuals without a significant other, celebrating their status as a ‘single’ person.

By getting creative with this specific aspect of Single’s Day, you can tailor your brand to provide an experience for the ‘single’ individual.

A good example would be Michael Kors, which created a campaign based on celebrating individualism and betting on yourself. With a simple idea and mechanic to promote its brand, Michael Kors focused on creating an individual’s experience.
