‘Tis (almost) the season, and the holidays are the perfect opportunity to send your customers a friendly message.

A recent study by Wunderman found that 79% of customers want brands to prove that they care about earning their business, and reaching out with a personal message during the festive season is one of the bestーand easiestーways to build strong customer relationships.

The only question is, how do you write a Merry Christmas message that will warm your customers’ hearts?

At SimpleTexting, we believe in the power of personalized messages on special occasions. So, we’ll give you eight text templates to work from and break down the anatomy of the ideal Merry Christmas message.

How To Write the Perfect Merry Christmas Text Message

Although it’s the season to let loose and have fun, there’s still a few tips to keep in mind as you write your Merry Christmas customer texts:

  • Keep it short. A greeting, a thank-you, and a special offer or coupon (in certain messages) is all you’ll need. Customers love texting partly because SMS messages are brief, so don’t overcomplicate it.
  • Add some fun media to spice things up. With MMS, you can attach photos, videos, and other media files. Take the opportunity to add an eye-catching, festive touch to your texts.
  • Personalize your text messages with your customer’s name, the date they joined you as a customer, or other details. This will help your messages sound less like spam. After all, your customers don’t want to get another vague or generic marketing message.
  • Avoid sarcasm or any jokes that reference gender, race, religion, or political affiliation. 

Follow these tips (or just steal the examples) to keep your Merry Christmas texts smooth and effective this season. Do it right, and your customers will feel the holiday cheer from their text inbox.
