An email feast: 40 Thanksgiving subject lines your customers will gobble up
The trick-or-treaters have come and gone, skeletons are back in the closet, and Halloween is officially behind us. Overnight, twinkly lights have gone up, carols and jingles are playing in every shopping mall, and you can’t ignore the giant tree in the town square. It would seem the December holidays are upon us. But wait! What about Thanksgiving?
Between Black Friday, Cyber Monday, and even Small Business Saturday and Giving Tuesday, Thanksgiving can often be overlooked. After all, your consumers are likely busy feasting, watching football, and slipping into tryptophan-induced food-comas. Right? Well, not exactly. Your customers might be house-bound, but in 2015, consumers spent $1.73 billion online on Thanksgiving Day, a 25 percent increase year-over-year.
We hope you get to take the day off and spend Thanksgiving with your family and friends — but not before you set up some delectable email campaigns to remind your subscribers what your business has to offer this holiday season. We collected some of our favorite email subject lines to send before, during, and after Thanksgiving.
