The Perfect Christmas Gift Profiler

Need help finding the perfect gift? We’re here to help.

The holiday season is quickly approaching, which means it’s time to start thinking about gifts for your loved ones. But, finding the perfect gift can be challenging. So many options and you want to make sure you buy them a Christmas gift that is going to put a big smile on their face. This should be an easy task, but often brings on unwanted stress.

Here’s where interactive marketing comes into play. Interactive experiences like Odicci’s Profiler can help your customers easily find the perfect gift they’re looking for, just by answering some questions on their style, likes, favourite items (the opportunities are endless and completely up to you!).

Then, they receive a custom profile based on their responses. Interactive marketing techniques are an increasingly effective way to engage customers and prospects with your brand and capture data.

People’s shopping habits have changed and the number of online shopping purchase in on the rise, especially during the holiday shopping months of November and December.

In fact, 25% of all holiday shopping occurs online and 40% of all Christmas sales occur within 15 December and 24 December, with the busiest shopping day being the Saturday before Christmas.

Now that you know where your customer’s will be shopping during that time period, you have a great opportunity to be able to connect with them and enrich your customer database.  

The new Profiler module (just launched!) incorporates both data capture and enrichment. Customers are asked a few questions and then a profile is created based on the customer’s responses.

The Profiler is a simple and fun way to engage customers and prospects, convert them into leads by providing suggestions, and profiling their interests for future marketing campaigns. The best part is, your customers don’t feel like they’re handing over data, but participating in an enjoyable experience that is giving them actionable results.

How does it work?

  1. Introduction frame to grab attention
  2. Data capture frame – name, email, etc.
  3. Questions to help profile the respondent
  4. Results frame with your profile

The Profiler module isn’t just for Christmas! It can also be used as an evergreen campaign to help you profile your customers all year long. Create the questions and profiles once, and its completely scalable to withstand the test of time.

Christmas – Advent calendar is the way forward!

Christmas is the most popular festive season worldwide. As the great Billy Mack from Love Actually said it “Christmas is all around”. Every time you go out and breathe in the fresh, crisp air, the warmth and cheerful feeling of the most wonderful time of year takes over.

The festive feeling really begins when the city is lit up with Christmas lights, spreading so much cheer.  Angels, snowflakes, and Christmas trees scatter the joy in every street. As soon as decorations are in every window, you know Christmas is not far away. When the first snow starts to fall, everyone gathers around the fire and the smell of roasted chestnuts fills the air.

Finally, the first day of December is here and the wait is almost over. Nothing brings more cheer than a thoughtful Advent Calendar to count down the final days until Christmas. The joy continues with every day towards Christmas as there is a little surprise to look forward to every morning. From little presents to recipes and cheerful messages – this tradition has lived on for quite some time now.

Do you remember the joy you felt when you received your first Advent Calendar as a child? Do you remember the joy in your children’s eyes when they got a glimpse of their first Advent Calendar? Do you yourself still enjoy a little surprise every day for counting down the days until Christmas? I bet you do and I bet your customers do as well!
