103 Gift Related Keywords for Your Ecommerce Holiday Campaign

Volume Nine

Many brands and retailers rely on holiday season gift giving sales for bottom-line success, and with the increasing popularity of online and mobile shopping, brands and retailers must take the following into consideration for their ecommerce holiday campaigns:

  • Holiday shopping starts way before Thanksgiving.
  • About 190 million U.S. consumers will blend online, mobile, and in-store shopping to make or inform their purchasing decisions this year.
  • Purchasers often “window shop” online. One result is an online purchase, but it also drives shoppers to local stores.
  • This is a prime customer acquisition and conversion opportunity!

Online marketing efforts will impact the success of most brick-and-mortar stores and ecommerce websites. Constructing online gift shopping campaigns and product promotions, crafting effective descriptions and writing blog posts that generate traffic are going to be most fruitful when based on the keywords and phrases shoppers are actually searching for.

This work must be implemented with enough time for search engines to add any new content to their index, so starting early is playing it smart. The shopping has begun, people! Have you completed your holiday keyword research?
