Key 2022 Dates to Wow Your Customers with Text

Marketing professionals and small business owners alike know that every year has specific days and events that create unique selling opportunities. Whether it’s a last-minute flash sale on Father’s Day or a month-long lead-up to the busiest shopping stretch of the year (Thanksgiving through Cyber Monday), marketing never stops. But before you bombard your shoppers with another year of endless emails, consider getting their attention in a much more effective way in 2022.

Text message marketing offers the easiest, most effective way to engage any audience in personalized two-way  conversations. Instead of blasting out an email to thousands and hoping someone bites, texting both alerts them to a sale andallows for  more targeted selling. More importantly, through conversational texting platforms like Voxie, marketing becomes a two-way channel, without bogging down your sales staff at key times throughout the year.

Speaking of key opportunities to sell, here’s a year-long list of top ecommerce and sales dates for 2022. Get ahead of them before they sneak up on you! All it takes to kick start sales is a well-crafted text message.


January is the time for new beginnings, resolutions and fresh starts. To that end, your messaging needs to target people’s desire to change, improve and better themselves.

Capitalize on Every Opportunity for Commerce

There’s a sales opportunity virtually every week of the year in 2022. And while you’re probably not running discounts for all of them, it’s important to look ahead at the ones you are participating in. Prepare your messaging ahead of time and look for opportunities to market more effectively to the shoppers you’re targeting. Voxie will help you connect through text, for conversations that lead to sales.

One last thought on getting the best results. Always remember there are many celebrations by very diverse groups of people and that all perceptions of a holiday or event may not be the same. Not everyone may be excited or happy on the same day. The more you can ensure your messages will meet the needs of different members of your audience, the better results you’ll have.
