For kids, trick or treating on Halloween is an exhilarating game of chance. Their mission is to acquire the most candy or the biggest candy bar that they can wrap their mouths around. It’s no secret, especially to the parents of sugar-craving witches and skeletons. That’s why every year, tried-and-true, families in each town flock to the neighborhood that hands out the biggest and best candy.
In this article, I will show you how to execute a reverse trick or treat tactic to generate referral leads during Halloween this year.
How to implement a reverse trick or treat referral and nurturing tactic
This Halloween, treat and stay top of mind with your recent clients by sending them full size candy bars that they can hand out to trick or treaters during Halloween. Here’s what you do:
- Determine your marketing budget for Halloween
- Determine the past clients that will receive the boxes full-size candy bars
- Calculate your goal
- Your goal is to generate a referral with a conversion rate of 15-20%
- If you send 10 boxes to 10 past clients, your goal is to generate at least 2 referrals
- Log into your Amazon Prime account
- Type “Full-size candy bars” into the search
- Select the candy boxes that you think your past client will like to hand out. Here are some of my picks:
- HERSHEY'S Halloween Chocolate Candy Bar Assorted Variety Pack: 30 Bars for $13.39 (50 cents per bar)
- SNICKERS, M&M'S, 3 MUSKETEERS & TWIX Full Size Chocolate Candy Bars Variety Mix: 30 Bars for $20.10 (67 cents per bar)
- REESE'S Halloween Candy Variety Pack: 30 Bars for $25 ($1.2 per bar)
- Include a note on the order that says something along the lines of, “I want you to be the most popular house in your neighborhood this Halloween!”
