It's that time of year again
The most wonderful time of the year is Christmas, and it’s the most wonderful time for your business if you take advantage of the opportunity that only comes around once a year. Christmas is excellent for marketing because it provides a huge range of potential opportunities for you to promote your business and the services or products on offer. Here are the main reasons why Christmas is so great for marketing your business.
A great way to get your business out there during the festive period is to make sure that a lot of your branding is themed around Christmas. Ensuring you post about the Christmas period and any special festive offers you have for your customers is a great way to increase customer engagement. Changing your profile picture to something a little more festive or even having some Christmas-themed elements to your website helps to make your customers trust you and ensures that they are in the Christmas spirit when you are advertising your products or services to them.
Sending your customers or clients branded Christmas cards is another great way to make your business stand out from the crowd. Branded cards show that you are willing to go the extra mile for your customers and clients, and can help to retain and gain loyal customers who will keep coming back to your business.
Ensuring your clients and any potential customers feel extra welcome during the festive period is essential if you are looking to build great relationships and make anyone interacting with your business feel warm and want to come back for more. Things as simple as saying “merry Christmas” on the phone or in an email, or wearing a Christmas hat as the face of a business can really make a difference during the holiday season to create a friendly and welcoming environment that will take advantage of the higher volume of potential customers looking to make a purchase during this period.
Events and promotions
Now, this goes without saying, but creating Christmas promotions like every other business is essential to ensure you take advantage of the accelerated spending rate of potential customers. Make your promotion stand out from the crowd with free shipping or discount codes. Showcase your Christmas promotions across social media, your website, and in-store if you have a physical store.
Special Christmas events are another great way to promote your business during the festive period. Create unique competitions and events for your customers to attend or participate in. A Christmas market in-store or run a competition on social media maybe asking your followers to send in photos of their favourite products by you and pick your favourite photo. It’s all about getting creative and showcasing your brand identity with Christmas-themed competitions to engage your target audience by getting them in the Christmas spending spirit.
