Pitch the idea of giving your gift cards as presents to family and friends. Make maximum noise about your new gift card deals and why it is the best move for your customers to stack them up.

Put on a show.

Show gift cards promotional images on customer-facing display. Plant a specific gift card rack near other accessories that your store is offering. Seek customers’ attention towards your gift cards deals with a little show.

Time for the tell.

A customer checks out your email or SMS notification or social media post about gift cards. He decides to ask you for one on his/her next visit to your store. Great, plan A worked! Or you catch a customer eyeing on a gift card on your store according to plan B. In both cases, you can tell the customer more about the whole thing and do business.

Gift Cards MarketingOn the other hand, if the customers are tougher than that, you are going to need another strategy. Time for plan C then. Do not wait for the customers to ask for a gift card.

“Hey, so are you paying with cash or credit card or do you have our gift card?”

“What are you planning for this holiday’s presents? How about a customized holiday gift card?”
