It’s that time of the year again! When we find our social newsfeeds and inboxes covered in spider webs, overflowing with cute pumpkin emojis and trick-or-treat puns – it all just means that Halloween is coming soon. 

 

According to the National Retail Federation’s annual survey, in 2023, nearly 7 out of 10 consumers plan to participate in Halloween-related activities, such as trick-or-treating, redecorating homes and backyards, pumpkin carving, or dressing up with their kids.

 

This Halloween, consumer spending is expected to reach an all-time high of $12.2 billion, up from $10.6 billion in 2022. Buyers will spend on average $108, mostly on candy (68%), outdoor decorations (53%), costumes (50%), and attending or hosting a party (32%)

 

Meaning… exactly what you think it means. Brands should ride the wave and get on board with appealing Halloween offers. And, as more than a third of consumers (37%) will search for ideas online, it is important to approach those potential shoppers on their most preferred communication channels.

 

To get you all inspired for the upcoming holiday, we’ve prepared a set of 20 spooktacular SMS & email templates, let’s get started!
