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.

“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?”
