Looking for ways to increase profits in April? You don’t have to wait until Mother’s Day to have a hit promotion. 

Here are 3 ideas you can start preparing for April 2018:

1. Tax Day – April 15th

Many people look forward to sales on Tax Day (or anything that will brighten their mood).

Promotion Ideas:

  • Offer free shipping for the day or promote a 15% off offer (for April 15th)
  • Have fun with the copy. “We’re giving you a break!”

Content Ideas:

  • Give tips about taxes related to your niche. For example, for a pet niche: “7 Pet-Related Tax Deductions You Might Be Able to Claim”
  • Share jokes related to doing taxes in your emails.

2. Earth Day – April 22nd

Celebrating Earth Day is a great way to build relationships with your audience. This is a time to show you’re more than just a brand. You’re using your platform to share

Promotion Idea:

  • You can do a promotion where a percentage of the proceeds will go to a good cause to help the environment.

Content Ideas:

  • Do a video, blog, or live stream of how the environment is important to you. You can show you and your team helping with cleaning up or planting trees.
  • What’s an environment-friendly tip related to your niche? For example, for a baby niche, you can share “3 Simple Steps to Make Your Diaper Changing Routine Better for the Environment.”

3. National Nurse’s Day – May 6th

Nurses are a different breed of human. I for one, marvel that they devote their life to long hours and difficult tasks all out of a heart to help people. No wonder they have their own National holiday!

This is a fantastic opportunity for print-on-demand ecommerce businesses in particular. You can target a group of people who are passionate about what they do and proud to show it off.

Promotion Idea:

  • Have a National Nurse Day Special. Offer customers nurse shirts and other products for a percentage off.
  • Suggested promo dates for shipping from PrintTech (formerly known as Printex) in Hannibal, MO is April 1st – April 22nd. However, if you’re using another dropshipping company, be sure to inquire about shipping cut-off dates from them.

Content Ideas:

  • Do a video, blog, or live stream thanking nurses for their service. 
  • Tell a story about a nurse. It could be a nice nurse you’ve met or a funny story about nursing you’ve heard.
  • Create a Gift Guide for Mother’s Day for moms who are nurses.
