As a business owner, you know how important it is to attract new customers. But did you know that focusing on customer retention is just as important, if not more? By keeping your existing customers happy and engaged, you can drive sustainable revenue and build a loyal customer base. 

With August just around the corner, we've compiled a list of marketing ideas to help you increase customer retention this month.

August Marketing & Engagement Ideas

πŸ“š Back to School

August is the perfect time to tap into the back-to-school market. Consider offering discounts or promotions for students and their families, or donating a portion of your sales to a local school or educational charity. You can also create themed promotions around school supplies, backpacks, or other back-to-school items.

🌀️ End of Summer Sale

As summer winds down, customers may be looking for end-of-season sales. Offer discounts on summer products or services to entice customers to come back. You can also create a sense of urgency by offering limited-time deals or highlighting items that are going out of season.

πŸ‹οΈ Health and Wellness

August is a great time to promote healthy habits and wellness. Consider offering discounts on athletic wear or products, fundraising for local recreation centers, or promoting healthy lifestyles and/or food options. You can also partner with a local wellness expert to offer workshops or seminars on health-related topics either in-person or virtually.

Black Business Month

August is also Black Business Month, which is a great opportunity to highlight and support Black-owned businesses. Consider featuring Black-owned businesses on your social media platforms, offering discounts on their products, or collaborating with them on a project.
