Remarkety has been out on the streets visiting with shop owners at the New York City Holiday Markets. The NYC Holiday Markets have been a tradition for many years and offer a fun place (as long as it isn’t raining) to find unique and handcrafted gifts. We spoke with vendors from around the world at the Grand Central, Bryant Park and Union Square markets. Shops are selling everything from jewelry and pottery to candles and scarves. We found something for everyone on our shopping list, especially the kids.
We spoke to a few shop owners and it’s not surprising that most of these shops are using email marketing as an easy (and affordable) way to keep in touch with shoppers all year. Through emails, retailers have cultivated strong relationships that bring customers back each holiday season.
With Remarkety, stores can grow their email lists with website pop-ups that capture addresses. They can also increase repeat business by targeting shoppers who have abandoned carts, haven’t placed an order in a while and more. The Remarkety platform is designed for small and medium sized shops and that’s why visiting the NYC Holiday Markets made a whole lot of sense.
Here’s a shout-out to some of the unique shops we found.
