80+ Creative Content Ideas to Fill Your November Email Marketing Calendar
Since you’ve opened this article, you already know it’s time to start thinking about how to surprise your customers in November. They say the early bird catches the worm; we say the early email marketer catches the attention of the customer. November is a kind of rehearsal before Christmas, and it’s time for brands to come up with creative email ideas.
November Email Ideas to Get in Touch with Customers
November marketing strategy rests on three big whales. Black Friday, which this year falls on November 26, is probably the main craze almost all over the world. First celebrated in the US only, it soon conquered Europe, Canada, Australia, Mexico, and keeps on taking over many other communities.
Though Thanksgiving is believed to be a typically American holiday, many other nations also celebrate it, and some of them do it in November as well. For example, the Japanese celebrate Kinrō Kansha no Hi, the so-called Labor Thanksgiving Day, on November 23. The Netherlands, Liberia, and Brazil tell their thanks on the same day the Americans do, so don’t miss a chance to engage with your customers who reside there. Cyber Monday is also a big event that can help convert prospects warmed up by Thanksgiving and Black Friday campaigns.
There is also Small Business Saturday and Giving Tuesday, which aren't that massive events yet but still deserve your attention. European companies may focus on Guy Fawkes Night or Bonfire Night — a popular British festival held on November 5. Though many traditions have changed with time, people still like to grill sausages over the fire and roast potatoes on the coals.
What Businesses Should Commit and How
As for Black Friday, there are no limits or restrictions on who may participate. Any brand may come up with creative email marketing ideas on one condition only: the sales they offer should be really lucrative. Otherwise being considered a nice small gift, a 5% shipping discount will fade against up to 90% off that would be offered by most major companies. If you run a small business and aren’t ready to get big with sales, it’s still possible to remind of your existence with a short post on any social media.
It’s also a good idea, relevant for any brand, to write an email expressing appreciation to your clients. Make them feel special and show you’re ready to take the extra mile for them.
And there is one type of companies that can benefit from any holiday, be it Guy Fawkes Night, National Vegan Day or Gluten-Free Diet Awareness observance. That’s right, we’re talking about food and beverage suppliers, because whatever celebration may be, it most likely involves parties, corporate dinners or a family barbeque.
What’s more, November is also the World Vegan Month. With healthy eating issues on the rise, any producers of eco-friendly, gluten-free, plant-based, whole grain-supported, animal-loving and environment-protecting products have the upper hand this month.
Turkeys and fireworks aren’t the only bread and butter that can feed your business in November. We’ve put together a list of holidays for each and every 30 of days of November. Hopefully, some of them will spark a creativity uptick and help come up with the right November marketing idea.
