Most businesses see Halloween (and other holidays for that matter) as just another excuse to run some sales campaign and offer discounts to their customers. Some even skip this event altogether and do nothing.

Discounts are great, but what about an everlasting impression, customer loyalty and brand advocacy? Holidays and special occasions can present a great chance to establish stronger communications with clients and create a more positive brand image. 

And what occasion can be better for building emotional connections with your customers than Halloween with its scary costumes, ancient traditions, and good old trick-or-treating? You can’t miss out on such an opportunity.

To give you a little nudge, we’ve prepared this collection of ready-made templates for your customer support, marketing, and sales. No need to invent anything yourself — just copy and paste these excerpts into your customer support tool. Or better yet, sign up for HelpCrunch as we’ve already added some templates into everyone’s accounts.

Halloween canned responses

When customers reach out to you, it’s in your power to give them an extraordinary experience. While marketers can go crazy with their promotional emails and materials, customer support may feel they have limited opportunities to celebrate.

So, how can a customer support representative maintain a festive mood? Just use these canned responses to add a pinch of spookiness and a little bit of fright to your Halloween conversations.

Halloween proactive chat messages

You’ve probably decorated your website for Halloween already. Marketers and salespeople are fond of Halloween posters, banners and popups offering special deals. But they often forget about another, less intrusive and more authentic, way to reach out to their customers.

Targeted in-app messages are great for SaaS companies that are running some sort of Halloween special deals and want to announce it to their active users.

They’re sent only once to a group of people that you specify with the help of demographic, geographic, or behavioral criteria. They’re called targeted because you can go as granular with user segmentation as you wish.

Halloween widget messages

Taking it to the next level would also include changing your live chat widget’s texts. If you’re using HelpCrunch, just go to Settings -> Website Widgets -> [YOUR WIDGET] and choose the ‘Localization’ tab.

You can customize your chat’s texts a little bit there to make them more Halloween friendly this time. For instance, it’s always a good idea to warn people who are trying to contact you outside your working hours. Something as simple as a short congratulation can make a difference, too.

You can go even further and replace your team members’ avatars with spooky avatars. Just download them on Freepic.
