Be prepared and take care of all your Christmas campaigns before November, read on below to find out why this is so important, especially when it comes to print.
Barry Kirkham from Firefly New Media UK has come up with these five awesome ideas to get the most from your festive marketing.
FESTIVE DESIGN & PRINT
(Christmas Booking Forms, Menus, Price lists, and much more)
Don’t leave your design and print until last-minute, remember it often takes a few days for designs to be completed, you’ll probably want to add/edit or change the design, and most importantly the print turnaround time can vary especially during Christmas and New Year (everyone else is getting their print and design now too).
LOCAL DISPLAY ADVERTISING
(Consett Magazine is a perfect example of a display advertising platform for local advertising during the Christmas period)
Book your space in a local magazine to target people in your local vicinity, it’s also true that over the Christmas and New Year Period many plans are hatched, so advertise using display ads to local customers over this time of year to benefit from an uptick in January and February sales.
DOOR TO DOOR RESIDENTIAL MASS MARKETING
(Get a complete leaflet distribution package includes: strategy, design, print, and hand delivered direct to homes)
It’s a marketing campaign that’s been around for millennia (well, maybe less than that, but its been used to advertise for a long time) – The door to door distribution campaign allows you to market directly to residential customers. This campaign is perfect for events, special Christmas offers/pricing, bookings for your hotel/spa/leisure service, Christmas tree sellers, and just about any business who want to target the general public in specific areas.
