What retains customers is not necessarily the same thing that will attract NEW customers. This is something to take into account when you are planning your content strategy for the holiday season.
New customers need to be lured in with catchy content that will quickly capture their attention, efficiently getting them into your net.
Returning customers want to see content that deepens their connection to you and your why because they've past the razzle dazzle phase (EVEN THOUGH) you should still work to wine and dine them to keep things fresh.

This is not the year to assume you know what gets your customers going. Take some real time to see where they are mentally. Take some time to understand their evolved needs and wants so that you can position your content to align with those concerns efficiently.
Customers have grown and GONE through a lot in the last few years. That means their motivations have changed a ton. Your job is to understand how they will draw value from your brand now in their current state.
You will need to go beyond surface level and actually connect with them on in order to move the needle. This may mean that content like Instagram lives and more UGC style video will need to be leveraged in order to cut through the noise.
We hope this quick guide helps you to focus your efforts heading into holiday, so that you can fully align with your customers this holiday season!
