Alice Cooper best captured the sentiment of school and college kids across America in his iconic song ‘School’s Out’. Unfortunately for many kids, Alice’s declaration that ‘school’s out forever’, is not necessarily true, at least not just yet.
Retailers are keenly aware of the impending new school year, and are most definitely in the midst of back-to-school promotional planning. The back-to-school shopping season is one of the largest and most important seasons on the retail calendar; second only to Christmas in sales.
As such, we here at RevTrax thought it most pertinent to hold a ‘Back-to-School Webinar’ to present trends and tips on the back-to-school retail season to help amplify your marketing campaigns and best connect with back-to-school shoppers.
A highlight of some of the trends to be discussed are as follows;
- The estimated combined US school and college spending to reach approximately $72.5 billion (NRF, 2013)
Back-to-school behavior trends
- Shoppers begin consuming BTS content as early as June (Outbrain, 2013)
What influences consumers to purchase?
- 83 % of consumers plan to use social media to find out about promotions, up from 70 % last year (Deloitte, 2013).
