Let your customers and contacts know they’re appreciated by sending holiday cards to your contact list. Marketing is about staying engaged, nurturing connections and keeping your business on the mind of your customers. Something as simple as sending a card, wishing customers a Happy Holiday is a simple and cost effective way to get people to keep your business in mind when they need your services.
Offer Holiday Photos
Pictures are great for social media! Set up a photo shoot event at your store and invite customers to take photos with Santa. You can also set up a winter wonderland for customers to post in front of and post their pictures to social media. Give you customers the opportunity to visit your office or storefront and market your business for you by having fun pictures and photos opportunities. Don’t forget to include a hashtag and share, post, and retweet customers’ photos on your social media as well.
Send a Holiday Calendar
Email your customers and contacts a holiday calendar to let them know about all of the important holidays in December. There is so much to celebrate including Hanukkah (December 16 – 24), Christmas (December 25), Boxing Day (December 26), Kwanzaa (December 26 – January 1), New Year’s Eve (December 31). Make certain to include your holiday specific specials. This is the perfect time to promote them.
