According to the annual survey released by the NRF; Americans will spend mindlessly on costumes, candies and pumpkins for a record $9.1 billion for Halloween this year.
Now, if you want your share of the candy, you need to get innovative. And just so that you know, boring ghost costumes, witches on brooms and good for nothing pumpkin lanterns are definitely a passé! If you own an online halloween costume shop, "No dreary stuff!" should be your mantra for Halloween 2017. "So what do I do?" you might ask.
Let's add some magic to your product catalogue. Let's make it spooky! Allow your customers to personalize Halloween goodies and create custom halloween costumes. It's time to let them sprinkle their own version of spookiness. Would that be innovative enough? Here's how you can go about it:
If you think Harry Potter Magic has died down, you might be wrong. Pottermore has recently announced their next film in the Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them series. Which means, tiny Potter fans are sure to hoard up your e-store looking for personalized magic wands and much more.
Be an online Ollivander this Halloween and let the little ones choose from your range of different woods, magical substances and colors. Your shopping cart must allow them choose where to engrave their name. And, also add a message along with that. Instead of the thank you message, flash the message "Expecto Patronum!". They are sure to screech with glee and keep coming back to your store. Wouldn't you pay an extra buck just for the experience?
Candies That Charm
Typical it is for sure, but the fact is that Halloween is incomplete without candies. You can give sweet tooth lovers something by letting them design personalized candy bar wrappers.
Let people engrave family name on the wrappers, draw a creepy lizard or a wicked witch and create a unique trick or treat mix! Add products like trick or treat bags, baskets and candy holders in the "You May Also Like" section. Also provide the option of free shipping if possible. Your customers are sure to go gaga over it.
Creepy Coloring Books
Children love coloring, doodling and creating creepy artwork on Halloween. Enable your buyers draw, doodle and create their own artwork on the product added in the cart. But make sure there is a section which says "Your Artwork Here." Once they are done designing, they can order for their personalized halloween coloring books with a single click.
So many ideas! Overwhelming for sure. But the trouble lies in deploying the features to achieve these effects. The Product Design Tool from Brush Your Ideas is just the extension can make it happen. It does not require much coding, it is effortless and easy to integrate.
