Halloween is one of the best holidays to commemorate, and 65% of Americans will celebrate in 2021, so it's no surprise that Halloween spending is increasing. According to the National Retail Federation (NRF), the total expenditure will surpass the 10 billion mark this year!
People living in the U.S. plan to spend 102.74 USD for Halloween on average, and a big part of this money will go to costumes, candy, and decorations. A great opportunity you cannot pass to increase your profits during the fall season.
Moreover, households with children are estimated to spend around twice the amount of homes without children on Halloween items. Millennial moms won't miss the chance to dress everyone in the family up! So, we recommend including products appropriate for everyone in the family. Keep reading for cool Halloween products suggestions to add to your store.
Halloween is very popular among the younger generations, and we have no doubt most of gen Z (16-24 years old) and Millennials (24-40 years old) will be celebrating. For this reason, it's time to brush up on your buyer personas knowledge, basing them on these different age groups. Don't miss the boat in targeting all the potential customers! Learn how to create a buyer persona from scratch here.
A crucial part of Halloween is, of course, the costumes. But not everyone dresses to the nines for Halloween. Give your customers something comfortable and easy to throw on, like Halloween shirts, hoodies, or sweatshirts they can make part of their outfit. Whether they love to keep the Halloween spirit more than one day a year or they want to go with the theme but not go over the top, you can't go wrong with some Halloween shirts!
Looking for a product your customers can use as gifts? Fuel has an excellent solution for you: tote bags, or should we say treat bags. Fuel canvas totes will be the perfect company for all the kids trick or treating this year, an extra practical detail they can reuse to carry candies or other things year after year.
Most Americans go big celebrating Halloween, and they put a lot of effort into decorations. Give people what they want with scary posters they can use to add Halloween vibes to their homes. On the other hand, we predict there will be plenty of pumpkin spice lattes and hot cider in most of your customers' homes this Fall. So what can be better than giving them some spooky vibes in cute mugs they can use all year round.
For some people, Halloween is a state of mind, not something you only celebrate once a year, and they can become your customers if you create a design to show the Halloween spirit to everyone around them.
As you may have concluded already, Halloween is a great occasion to sell more! But, you may ask yourself, how do I do that? Well, Fuel has some suggestions to help you reach all your spooktacular potential!
