2. Set Up Automated Reminders For Your Valentine’s Sale

Remember, you’re not the only online store running deals and discounts for Valentine’s Day.

With the number of businesses using WhatsApp to send out bulk promotions and broadcasts, it is easy to get lost in the volume.

That’s where we recommend setting up automated reminders for your Valentine’s sales using an app like QuickReply.ai.

Here are some WhatsApp marketing templates to use for sending reminders around your Valentine’s Day sale:

Template 1

Hey <name>,

Our Valentine’s Sale is live and we have a 20% off running on all our products until the end of the week. 🛍️

Don’t forget to get your loved ones a little something from our collection. 💖

CTA >> Get a gift today!

Template 2

If you haven’t already, don’t forget to get a gift for your loved ones from our special collection of gifts. 🛍️

We have a 20% off running on some items too for the next 7 days.

CTA >> Get a gift today!

3. Automate Your Abandoned Cart Recovery Reminders

Just like all other occasions, Valentine’s also tends to see a high number of abandoned carts. On average, online stores experience about 69% of abandoned carts, leading to potentially losing sales worth hundreds or maybe even thousands of dollars.

With WhatsApp marketing, you can send automated abandoned cart recovery reminders to bring back buyers who were seeking gifts for their loved ones. With instant deliveries and frequent usage of the app, your reminders are more likely to be read.

Here are some abandoned cart recovery WhatsApp marketing reminder templates you can use:

Template 1

Hey <name>,

Looks like you left your Valentine’s gift behind! 💖

Complete the purchase today to get an extra special freebie along with the order, and timely delivery to your loved one.

CTA >> Complete the purchase now!

Template 2

Order today to get an express delivery on the surprise. Don’t be late when it comes to showing your love.

CTA >> Complete the purchase

4. Secure Your Valentine’s Sales By Converting Cod To Prepaid Orders

A lot of online shoppers choose to pay for an order with COD (cash on delivery). While it may make sense for a buyer to keep their money secure until an order is delivered, as a business it may not be in your favour.

COD orders tend to see the highest number of RTO and NDR, resulting in businesses having to bear the costs of reverse logistics. Add to that the risk of the products getting damaged on their way back, and it’s a bummer.

This is where you can use WhatsApp marketing to convert COD orders into prepaid. Here are some WhatsApp marketing templates you can make use of:

Template 1

Hey <name>,

Your order for the ABC gift is confirmed and we’re going to be shipping it out in the next 24 hours.

To get a special 10% off on the order total, pay for the product online today!

CTA >> Pay for the order online.

Template 2

Hey <name>,

Your Valentine’s Day order is confirmed.

To avail express shipping of your gift order, make an online payment for it today. You can use debit/ credit cards, mobile wallets and other preferred payment modes in our store.

CTA >> Pay online today.

5. Offer Customer Support To Valentine’s Day Shoppers

A lot of Valentine’s Day shoppers are seeking help on getting the best gift for their loved ones. While some come with specific products in mind, others simply come with an idea and are looking for suggestions.

Ever walked into a store and asked for help in finding products that an 18-year old, Taylor Swift fan would love?

That’s where you can use WhatsApp for customer support.

Let your store visitors reach out to you for help. Using chatbots and FAQ automation, you can direct them to specific product collections around Valentine’s on your store. Or you could engage them in a proactive conversation, learning more about their needs and preferences, and recommend products accordingly.

Here are some WhatsApp marketing templates for support that you can use to initiate a conversation:

Template 1

Hey <name>,

Looking for a Valentine’s Day gift, but don’t know what to get? 👋

Tell us a little about your loved ones to get personalized recommendations from our special gift collection.

CTA >> Take the survey.

Template 2

Hey <name>,

6. Set Up Win-back Campaigns To Keep Valentine’s Shoppers Engaged

Don’t think Valentine’s week is the only time you can get online shoppers to buy from you. Use Valentine's week as an excuse to establish a proactive relationship with them, and then set up win-back campaigns to ensure you drive repeat sales from these shoppers.

Some of the win-back campaigns you can use to boost customer retention, drive loyalty and also get repeat sales includes:

- Requesting product reviews and ratings
- Requesting customer feedback
- Sending product recommendations

Here are some WhatsApp marketing templates you can use for win-back campaigns:

Template 1

Hey <name>

7. Automate Your Post-purchase Communication

Imagine buying a special gift for your loved one and then remaining anxious about when it is going to be delivered.

You’re constantly tracking the order on the website, or even reaching out to the brand’s customer support.

Amidst all the anxiety, you end up buying a back-up Valentine’s gift just in case the order does not get delivered on time.

But as a business, what if you were going to deliver it on-time anyways? This is where post-purchase communication comes in.

Use WhatsApp marketing automation with QuickReply.ai to send out the following post-purchase updates:

- Order confirmation
- Order status alerts
- Order delivery confirmation
- Request product reviews and ratings
- Request customer feedback

Here are some WhatsApp marketing templates for post-purchase communication:
