Regardless of your “year-to-date” there’s still time to close out the quarter with powerful marketing strategies.
For starters, marketing messages can be “themed” for the holidays. How can you tweak your copy or create a powerful campaign headline that you can use across multiple mediums? Brainstorm with your team. Beware, the line between clever and cheesy is really thin!
Second, how can you appropriately tap into well known promotions? Just around the corner is Small Business Saturday and quickly following is Black Friday and Cyber Monday. Are you prepared with your own promotions?
This just scratches the surface.
