February is here! + Tips for the Weekend

February is here. (well, kinda)

Put your best foot forward in February by making the most out of this weekend. Start the new month strong by taking part in Groundhog Day and Super Bowl fun.

Saturday, February 1

  • #salesatsunrise – Calling all early bird merchants! Early Saturday morning, create a post targeting early bird OpenSky shoppers using hashtag #salesatsunrise.
  • #samedayshipping – Market your products to shoppers looking for quick-ship peace of mind. Guarantee you’ll get orders out to shoppers the same day they order using #samedayshipping
  • Free Sample Saturday (and Sunday!) – Have sample sizes of your products? Offer to throw them in with any purchase to drive new orders today and repeat purchases in the future. Use #freesample in your post.
  • Image Makeover – Spend time this weekend giving your product images a makeover and reposting them so followers get a fresh look at older favorites. On desktop, try downloading Fotor for Mac. It’s an easy application that allows you to quickly edit, crop and enhance photos. On mobile, give Moldiv (iOS) (Android), PicLab (iOS) (Android) or Aviary a shot. These are great photo editing tools that allow you to enhance photos in a few easy steps. No photo designer required.

Groundhog Day! And the Super Bowl!  Here’s how to participate in the fun.

  • Groundhog Day:  We put our faith in Punxsutawney Phil year in and year out, but interestingly enough he’s only right 39% of the time (crazy, right?!?). So this year, we’re asking Merchants to cast their own vote with a hashtag and a product post. Use #earlyspring or #latewinter and share a product that best reflects your prediction. Make it more fun for shoppers with free shipping or a discount for the day.
  • Super Bowl Flash Free Shipping: From 6pm – 12am ET, OpenSky members will have a reason to shop during the game with flash free shipping.  Suggested Hashtag: #SBFreeShipping
