9 Cyber Monday Texts to Get Customers in Your Virtual Line

Text that reads cyber monday on a brick backdrop

In 2020, shoppers purchased $10.8 billion worth of products on Cyber Monday, making it the largest U.S. online shopping day in history. The holiday is just around the corner again—and experts predict it’ll be bigger than ever. That’s why you need a Cyber Monday text strategy.

Why Use Texts on Cyber Monday?

In 2020, shoppers made well over a third of their purchases via mobile devices. Since the pandemic proved the convenience of online mobile shopping to many, shoppers will probably gravitate toward their phones to make purchases again.

You should text customers before, on, and right after Cyber Monday so you can meet them where they are—on their phones. You’ll be more likely to catch their attention and remind them about your stellar products. Then you can quickly answer any questions they might have, streamlining their path to purchase.

Remember: customers can probably get your products or similar products from your competitors. You’re probably offering about the same deals. But you can offer a more streamlined, convenient experience for them with Cyber Monday texts.

Pre-Cyber Monday Texts

Customers do a lot of online shopping before actual Cyber Monday. In fact, some retailers started advertising for Cyber Monday in mid-October of 2020. To keep up, let your customers know about your deals well before the main event. Just remember: don’t directly mention percentages off or dollar amounts, as your carrier might filter out those texts. And, as always, personalize your pre-Cyber Monday texts as much as possible to give customers a VIP experience:

Texts to Send On Cyber Monday

A lot of customers still do their main shopping on Cyber Monday proper. In 2020, consumers spent $2.7 billion in the last few hours of the day. Send customers reminders the morning of Cyber Monday so they direct their last-minute shopping to your website. Again, you’ll want to steer these texts away from direct mentions of sale details:

Post-Cyber Monday Texts

Many customers might have taken the chance to opt in to your SMS service for the first time on Cyber Monday. Now, you have the opportunity to build rapport and let them know why your SMS reminders are so useful. Connect with both leads who didn’t end up making purchases and leads who did. Follow up with Cyber Monday extension information, product tips — or a reminder that they’ll have the chance to experience more of your holiday deals soon:
