With the holiday season just around the corner, marketing your business can seem like a daunting task. In this blog, we’ll be talking about some tips that can help you prepare ahead of time and avoid the stress that comes with the season.
Looking Into Previous Holiday Marketing Campaigns
There is always something new to learn from looking at your business’s past. If you’ve done marketing campaigns for previous holiday seasons, you should definitely take a look at them again.
Analyzing your past strategies and statistics can give you important insight into how you should run your current holiday campaign.
What were your successes, mistakes, and why or how did they occur? These are some of the important questions you should ask yourself as you view the previous campaigns. It can help you avoid past mistakes and brainstorm new ideas that could help better market your business.
Planning Is Everything
After looking through your past campaigns, it’s important to start planning right away. Research current popular trends and keywords, with Google Trends or other online marketing tools that can help your holiday marketing plan be more effective.
It’s good to research your target audience, along with past or current customers for more information on how to market your business for the best results. You can use search engine optimization (SEO) to get an idea about what your audience is looking for when it comes to the holidays.
The most important thing to remember from all of this is to keep your plan small and organized. The holiday season can already be pretty tough, so it’s better to stick to a more simple plan that can be easily followed. It will also be easier to make adjustments when necessary, especially due to unforeseen statistics or life events.
Strategizing Your Holiday Content
As online shopping continues to grow, customers are continuously seeing the same type of holiday campaigns year after year. Causing people to end up skimming over a lot of businesses.
One way to avoid this is to create your content as fun, simple, and easy for your audience to digest. It may be tempting to try to go all out, but it’s better if the content has personality. It will give your audience the chance to better relate to you and your business, as well as grow their interests.
Video is another great way of raising your engagement. Its been growing more popular over the years, so it would be beneficial to create some holiday ads as videos. Giving you the opportunity to go into more detail about the product you are trying to sell, or at least give an added touch of your personality that will bring people in.
