2023 nordstrom Anniversary Sale Countdown


Key Dates & Top Sales-Driving Days

Before we dive into best practices, start adding the below Key Dates to your calendar so you can plan your content accordingly!

Nordy Club members get advanced access to the sale, which means that the most loyal, elite Nordstrom customers are shopping earlier. According to the Top Sales-Driving Days of 2022, the biggest days are the first two days of sale access.

How to Earn More With Your Content Strategy

Looking to boost your Nordstrom Anniversary Sale gains? By giving yourself time to plan a cohesive content strategy, you can drive traffic and sales across all your content channels.

  1. Start early: The Nordstrom Sale may span multiple weeks, but the biggest sales days are the first two days of sale access. Getting a head start will help you maximize your earning potential.
  2. Get to know your audience: Before the sale begins, make a list of the topics your audience cares about, and which products and categories they’re more likely to purchase. For example, if you create recipes, your audience may be looking for great deals on kitchen goods. Spend some time in your social media and affiliate analytics and consider categories they shop, brands they love, and their preferred price point to guide your linking strategy. You can use your Instagram Stories to ask questions and get feedback on what they’re looking to buy this year!
  3. Diversify your content: Blogs are still valuable platforms for posting your affiliate content and driving sales. But diversifying beyond your blog will help you repurpose your content to a broader audience. Lean into your strongest social media platforms, come up with a messaging strategy for each, and create a schedule that helps you maximize your reach and engagement.
  4. Tease your discoveries: Remember tip #1? To get a head start on the competition, start posting about the sale before it goes live, teasing your favorite products, your shopping guides, and your best tips. This will help build excitement and anticipation.
  5. Give your audience a shopping strategy: Posting about your favorite discoveries is a great first step. To go further, tell them why they should be shopping those items, and how to best use their time and money during the sale. Maybe they’ll get the best deals if they shop early. Or maybe, this the best time to buy that designer bag they’ve been eyeing. By giving them secret tips and best practices, they’ll feel like they’re getting the inside scoop.
