Your Guide to Peak Seasons

Optimize your Search Engine with our Guide to Peak Seasons.

In this article, we will guide you on how to prepare for special occasions throughout the year. Doofinder can be a valuable asset when it comes to planning and maximizing sales during peak periods.

Special dates refer to specific dates and seasons throughout the year that significantly boost traffic and sales on e-commerce websites. During these periods, shoppers actively explore online stores in pursuit of the best deals and offers.

To make the most of these occasions and capitalize on the increased demand, it is important to plan ahead and take advantage of these business opportunities. Now, you might be wondering, what are these significant times of the year?

Think about popular events like Black Friday, Cyber Monday, Christmas, and special occasions like Mother's Day, Father's Day, or Valentine's Day. Have you ever wondered how your search engine can make a difference during these high-traffic periods? Well, we have some solutions that can help you accomplish your goals effortlessly.

Banners are a valuable tool during special seasons. As we learned in the Ads and Promotions section, setting up Banner campaigns is easy. You can schedule them to appear at specific times, target them based on search terms, and even have a default banner for all search results.

Banners attract your customers' attention with their visual appeal, encouraging them to click. They are an effective way to communicate your latest promotions and deals to your customers.

Redirections

Now, let's talk about something called Redirections. It's a handy tool in Doofinder that lets you direct your customers to special offers or promotions.

Here's how it works: When a customer types in a specific search term, they will be automatically taken to another page that you choose.

To give you an example, let's say Mother's Day is coming up in two weeks. You've prepared different gift sets with special prices to celebrate the occasion. How can you make sure these gift sets get noticed?

One way is to create a beautiful landing page that showcases these gift sets. Then, whenever someone searches for terms like "Mother's Day," "flowers," "gifts," or "perfumes," you can redirect them to that dedicated page.

You can get creative with the search terms related to the special day and set up the redirections accordingly. It's a great way to guide your customers to the right offers and make their shopping experience even better.

Custom Results

During special times of the year, you can utilize search results to promote products or offers. The Custom Results feature enables you to include or exclude specific items from search results based on particular search terms. This gives you the ability to guide your users' browsing experience according to your marketing and sales strategy.

Think of Custom Results as your own version of Sponsored Results. Similar to popular search engines, you can provide specific results and prioritize them at the top of the results page. Make use of this tool to promote any product you desire!

Product Recommendation Widget

Doofinder Recommendations are a great way to show customers relevant promotions. These recommendations not only help with cross-selling by showing related items, but they also make it easier for customers to find the perfect product.

The recommendations' widget showcases product suggestions according to the following guidelines:

  • On the HOME PAGE, it highlights the most frequently visited products.
  • On PRODUCT PAGES, it presents related items based on title, description, and categories.

When customers see an offer they didn't even know about, it could be just what they need to make a purchase.
