Are you ready to make money this Mother’s Day?
You may be offering takeaway treats for Mother’s Day on March 14th, but have you thought of the role gift vouchers can play to make money in your business, despite being closed?
At last there is some light at the end of the tunnel for hospitality re-opening in the UK, but we’re not out of the woods yet. Finding ways of generating income while operating on a skeleton staff has never been more important.
Mother’s Day provides a big spike in consumer spending on gift vouchers, with Christmas, birthdays, and anniversaries making up other drivers for sales. So how can you use this key sales date to your advantage?
Gift vouchers will deliver revenues both this month and on re-opening
Offering take-away Mother’s Day treats may be an option for some, but gift vouchers are a way to generate much-needed income for everyone. They make popular presents and have a wide appeal for every generation.
Vouchers make a promise that consumers can buy an experience today and give it to friends and family to enjoy later on in the summer when you are able to re-open. Gift vouchers also deliver on the idea of ‘something to look forward to’ – and who doesn’t need that at the moment?
Even better, the recipients of gift vouchers spend an extra 35% (on average) on top of the value of the gift when they come to redeem their voucher*.
Gift vouchers really are a win-win for you and your customers.
How do you get started?
