5 Tips Luxury Marketers Can Learn From Showtime’s ‘Homeland’


“Homeland,” Showtime’s 2012 Emmy-winning series, is a story of heroic efforts by a team of dedicated intelligence professionals to promote the interests of the United States and safeguard it against
threats in an ever-changing, turbulent world. In a larger sense, it’s very similar to the efforts of luxury marketers to gain mindshare of affluents. The storyline has a premier brand, the United
States, whose influence is being threatened. Like luxury marketers, the team has to promote the brand while also protecting it from powerful, opposing forces in the marketplace who desire to diminish
its influence.

Wix Apps to Boost Your Holiday Special Offers


If your business website isn’t already in full Holiday mode, now’s the time to switch from everyday to holiday business mode.
Holiday season is an opportunity to attract customers with offers they can’t refuse. Your website
should highlight special offers and discounts and give visitors a special holiday shopping experience.

Each year, Wix is proud to offer the best online tools for promoting holiday-related special offers,
but this year we have a secret weapon – the Wix App Market! Now you can add special apps
to your Wix site and boost your sales during this peak season.

Shopify your site

Here are the top apps we recommend for your holiday special offers:

Shopify Online Stores

The Shopify app turns your website into a full online shop in just minutes! With 5GB of storage,
more than 65 payment gateways and unlimited shop bandwidth, you can offer your customers an easy
and comfortable shopping experience.

To highlight your holiday special offers, use Shopify’s app settings and place all deals and discounts directly on the store’s Frontpage. In the Wix editor, click on the store and choose App Settings, then check the Frontpage checkbox for all products on sale.

Social Coupons

Post a social coupon on your website and promote your hot sale. With this app, you can design the coupon yourself and place it anywhere you want on your site. Whether you’re offering 2 for 1, 50% off or a $100 gift certificate – you have full control on the sale’s terms and conditions, including the time frame.

The great thing about social coupons is that they turn your clients into your Santa’s little helpers
by encouraging them to share the coupons on their social media profiles. This way, customers are not only shopping for your products, they’re actively promoting  them themselves.

AppForma Sweepstakes

As a prize, you can offer anything you can think of – from discounts to giveaways. To increase sales, open the sweepstake only to clients who purchased products from you during the past month. The upgraded version of this app allows you to collect participant information for future marketing initiatives.
