Day 4: Plant the Seed
Use personalization to highlight and create promotions that are tailored to meet the specific interests of your customers, that otherwise may not have been considered. Promote a travel offer based on the top three cities where your customers’ friends live by notifying them of deals on flights, hotels, and/or other travel offers available in those cities.
For example, include the following offer in your travel newsletter for someone who lives in Chicago and has friends in Nashville:
“Year-end sale on flights from Chicago to Nashville. Book your flight by December 31st for travel in January — flights starting at $99.”
An individual in the Chicago area with a large friend base in Nashville will connect with the offer and have reason to take action. While they may not be planning an immediate trip to Nashville, a strong, personalized offer provides a great incentive for purchase.
