What is the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

Unlike other sales that have discounts on last season’s styles, the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale includes brand-new, in-season items. And it only happens once a year.

Okay, but I don’t typically shop or link to Nordstrom…

MagicLinks Creators earn 2x more commission during the Anniversary Sale period than on Black Friday! If you don’t typically link to Nordstrom, the Anniversary Sale is the best time to introduce your followers to their brands and products!

So let’s dig into strategy: here’s your playbook for creating and sharing content to earn big during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale this year.

Content Strategy

  • Create an ObessedWith.It of products from the preview to share with your audience.

✨ Create content about how the sale works. Educate your followers on access dates, brands and products that will be on sale, and direct them to your ObessedWith.It so they know exactly where to shop your picks when the sale starts.

  • Add Nordstrom MagicLinks to your current content now—you’ll drop cookies foras your audience shop you’ll earn leading up to the sale.

✨ Turn on auto sync with YouTube in your MagicLinks Account. All MagicLinks added to your YouTube videos will be automatically added to your ObsessedWith.It.

Once the Sale is Live
  • Share a new video announcing the sale is open to the public! Update your ObsessedWith.It with in-stock items, cover your fave picks again, and remind followers to click your ObsessedWith.It to shop.
  • Add your Nordstrom Sale ObsessedWith.It link to TikTok, Instagram, and YouTube for the duration of the sale.
  • Keep sharing new links with your audience. Product sells out fast, so remind them daily what’s still in stock.

✨ In addition to linking to specific products, create category round ups that link to category pages. This will guard against quick stock changes.

Social Toolkit

✨ Become a power user of Instagram stories during the sale—link to top trending products across the MagicLinks community during the sale, even if you don’t plan to purchase for yourself.
