1. Opt out
Not everyone celebrates Easter. With this in mind, give all of your customers a chance to opt out of receiving Easter-related communications if it’s not relevant to them.
Hi [NAME]. We understand that not everyone celebrates Easter. If you would prefer not to receive our texts about Easter, reply back with “NO” and we will remove you from our Easter mailing list.
2. Seasons greetings
Wish your customers well during seasonal holidays like Easter. This can even be a great way to initiate a two-way conversation.
Hi [NAME]! From all of us here at [COMPANY], we would just like to wish you a very Happy Easter! Reply back and let us know how you’ll be spending your break.
3. Special offer
Seasonal holidays and events are a great excuse to launch a special promotional code/offer and lure customers to your website. Use SMS to promote these offers. Extra brownie points if you can get a pun in there!
Hi [NAME]. We have an egg-clusive Easter offer for you. Use code EGG23 to get 20% off your entire shop. Click here to be redirected to our website [insert URL].
4. Spring sale
Similar to special offers, use seasonal holidays and events as an excuse to launch a sale.

5. Multi-buy deal
Consumers love finding the best deals and Easter is a great reason to offer a time-sensitive multi-buy deal.
[NAME], do you have loads of people to treat this Easter? We can help out with 3-for-2 on all of our Easter eggs and chocolate. Hurry whilst stocks last! [insert URL]
6. Supporting a charity
In addition to launching seasonal sales and offers, why not take this opportunity to perform some charitable deeds and get your customers onboard?
Hi [NAME], to show our support for local communities, for every chocolate egg you buy this Easter, we will be donating one to food banks up and down the country. Help us spread some Easter cheer for underprivileged children in the UK today!
Use a seasonal holiday like Easter to support the launch of a new product or range of products. Offer freebies as an incentive. You can even make your SMS subscribers feel extra special by saying that this offer is only for customers who have opted in to receive text messages.

9. School holidays
The Easter school break is typically a few weeks long. If your customers are parents, lean into this when creating your SMS campaign. Can you help them keep little ones and even teens entertained?

10. Gift guides
There’s a growing trend towards buying non-edible goods at Easter, such as gift cards, clothing, perfume, books and days out. Cater to this and offer your SMS subscribers Easter-themed items that aren’t chocolate. You can even put together an Easter gift buying guide to inspire customers.
