Three promotions to celebrate summer

After a long winter, summer’s finally here, and that’s a reason to celebrate. This summer, you don’t need a holiday as an excuse for a promotion (though if you do need an excuse, there’s always 4th of July). These promotions will help you bring the spirit of summer to your business, and give your customers a good reason to stop by.

Block party!!

The perfect place to celebrate summer is outdoors! Circle up with your neighboring local businesses and plan a block party—think barbecue (or food trucks), popsicles, and maybe even live music from local musicians—and of course, some great deals or discounts at each business.

Try: We’re having a block party this Saturday and we want YOU to join us! Food trucks, live music, and discounts around the neighborhood. Happy summer!

Summer jams

Survey your customers for their opinion on summer’s best hit. Everyone who responds gets a discount, and you can throw a small, informal party with the playlist you crowdsourced from your customer’s faves.

Try (Retail): What’s THE summer jam? Come by and let us know, and you’ll get 20% off storewide. Then join us on Sunday 2 -6 for our summer jam party, with food, discounts, and some great grooves.

Try (Bar/restaurant): What’s THE summer jam? Come by and let us know, and you’ll get a free appetizer with your order. Then join us on Sunday for our summer jam party, when we play everyone’s faves.

Keep it cool

Even though summer’s great, sometimes the heat can be a little too intense. Give your customers an escape from the hot weather with a luxe cooling station, which could include things like cucumber water, misters with scented water, and pretty paper fans.

Try: Too hot? Cool off with us! We’ve got a luxe cooling station at the ready, with cucumber water and more. Plus some hot deals storewide.

No matter what your time and budget constraints are, these suggestions should have you covered!
