Veterans’ Day and Singles' Day.

11.11 is the day when two holidays coincide, which means you have two good reasons to arrange a flash sale.

It’s up to you what occasion to choose. It mainly depends on your store and your intent.

Veterans Day is a holiday honoring the military and veterans in the United States. Many businesses express gratitude to the nation's army by holding special Veterans Day sales or sending messages of thanks:

 

[Store Name]:Happy Veterans’ Day to our armed forces and their families, who sacrifice so much to serve our nation! Check out our exclusive deals in honor of Veterans’ Day: [store link]

 

[Store name]: Veterans' Day flash sale! One day only! 15% off site-wide with code: VETERANS. Shop now: [store link]

 

Singles' Day is a shopping event that originated in China. It’s a sort of anti-Valentine’s Day when singles can make gifts for themselves in the same way couples do for each other on February 14. 

Singles' Day is primarily focused on the Chinese e-commerce marketplace AliExpress, but the event also has great potential for other countries. Why not go with it and run a Singles' Day flash sale?

When launching flash sales, you don’t have to do a lot of preparation.

Just create a promotional SMS campaign in a few minutes and update the header in your store.

Now, your Shopify store is ready for your flash sale!
