January Promotion Ideas

After the festive period customers are looking for a fresh start for the new year! Christmas has been packed away and people are looking for new beginnings. Why not use that opportunity to promote healthy and clean living products and services. Below are some ideas that you could use in store;

Host a Healthy Living Event

Why not host a healthy living event. Get in touch with your suppliers and request that they send brand representatives and ask if they can give you special discounts on their products for the event. Demonstrating products allows the customer to try it out before buying and gains their trust in the product. You can use your PharmaPOS templates to ensure your store and online social media are popping for the event!

Operation Transformation

Operation Transformation has been running for a number of years in Ireland. It is a show based around health and fitness, whereby 6 leaders are chosen from around the country as they go on a healthy eating and lifestyle change whilst the cameras follow them around. The TV show is aired on RTE1 but promoted and supported by national radio and right across the web. Thousands of people get involved all around the country from their own homes, offices, clubs or simply by themselves. You and your team could get involved by either taking part or by having an Operation Transformation event or stand in your store. Use your PharmaPOS templates to promote any healthy living products in store and on your social media platforms that support Operation Transformation. Operation Transformation 2020 kicks off on RTE1 on Wednesday, 8th January 2020.

Launch a new product

Launching a new product in January is a great way to lure customers back into your store. Pick a star product that you can have front and centre for the whole month. Create brand new PharmaPOS templates to display in store and across your social media to promote the new product. You could arrange a product launch which could include a dedicated stand for the month with discounts and prizes on the product.

PharmaPOS Themed Templates – A great way to get noticed!

Christmas is upon us but fear not as there is still time to ensure that your store looks inviting to all potential customers both in-store and online. A great way to ensure that your in-store marketing is eye catching for your customers is by choosing a Christmas theme that you can use throughout the entire store and on your social media platforms. Have your shelf talkers, A4 posters, A5 flyers and banner posters all looking festive, but uniform with your social media platforms. Choosing a themed marketing approach gives your business a professional look and feel that will draw in both your visiting and online customers. Using PharmaPOS makes this approach very easy with our new Christmas themed PharmaPOS templates that are now ready and available to use across your store and on your online social media platforms. 

See Themed Templates and Special Offer

PharmaPOS Themed Templates

There are currently 8 themes to choose from on the PharmaPOS website. If you like a traditional look you can choose from a traditional Christmas theme or an elegance Christmas theme (light or dark). If you wish for something a bit more fun and playful you can choose from one of the snowman, santa, christmas tree or snowflake themes. Proving very popular this year is our Christmas nutcracker and we have used this theme to show some examples of templates that can be used for your promotions. 

Christmas and Afterwards – Promotion Ideas

If you are looking for your business to stand out why not run a promotion on the lead up to Christmas and afterwards. Some ideas could include;

  • A 12 Days of Christmas Promotion
  • Buy One Get One FREE Promotion
  • Family and Friends Discount Day
  • Create unique hampers available ONLY at your store
  • After Christmas Sale
  • A ‘Santa didn’t bring me what I wanted’ Flash Sale

Don’t forget the ‘After Christmas’ Sale – a great opportunity for promotions also. People are still off work and love to check out the post-Christmas bargains from the 26th December onwards! Look out for the new sales templates we are launching next week. Use your in-store and online marketing to push those extra sales through until January.

Pharmacies Instructed not to Use Food Intolerance Tests

This follows an advisory published by the Health Products Regulatory Authority that food intolerance testing can only be useful with expert guidance from a doctor or dietitian. The HPRA warns that any single food intolerance test does not have clinical usefulness, based on their survey of existing food intolerance testing products.

In-store marketing experts tell us that holidays are a very important time for marketing and holiday themes really work. Why do holiday themes work?

When visitors to your pharmacy feel it’s a special time they are more receptive to your in-store marketing message.
