Your competitors are probably already locked and loaded, ready for their holiday promotions. Are you?
If you’re not quite there yet, here’s a little Holiday Promotions Marketing Prep List for you to tick through to start pushing that needle forward for the holiday season.
Holiday Promotions Marketing To-do List
What are your holiday offerings?
No, not your regular services or products. If you’re a B2B company, come up with some kind of holiday promotion to help entice people who might be on the fence. If you’re a B2C company, can you offer a discount? If not, can you create “new” products by bundling a few of your current products together? Make sure you have something new or special to offer otherwise you’ll just get lost in the mix.
What are your goals for your holiday promotion?
Grab a cup of coffee and take five minutes to sit down and decide what you want out of the campaign. Be as specific as possible. You’ll need to quantify your goals to track success. Figure out what would be worth it to you, then set a number that brings you a return.
Figure out what resources you have to make this campaign a success.
What can you utilize to make your holiday promotion reach the most people and be as successful as possible? Think about your social media following, newsletter list, partners, and paid ad budget.
Create a to-do list and get ‘er done!
