Black Friday might be over, but that doesn’t mean all the shopping is done. Holiday shopping is right around the corner! With all the holiday deals and specials, here are a couple tips on how you can save the most money by spotting which holiday marketing campaigns to avoid.
1. Not being unique enough
It’s a given that almost every store will have an “Up to 50% off” special or a “BOGO Free” deal. Make your campaign special by stressing the uniqueness of what you have to offer your customers. What makes your products, or in this case holiday specials, more exciting than any other? By showcasing your exclusive products, services, or offerings, you’ll without a doubt attract your competitor’s most loyal customers.
2. A lack of creativity
When the word “advertisement” comes to mind, most people might think of flashy and creative visuals. A lack of creativity can backfire on your advertisement for ignoring what might be most appealing to your consumers.
3. Forgetting about Chanukah and Kwanzaa
As a marketer in the first place, it’s essential to know that you are marketing to all kinds of people with different religious backgrounds. Remember that even though the majority of people may be celebrating Christmas, there are still other holidays being celebrated. Be aware about this issue when you’re working on your holiday marketing campaign.
4. Failing to attract both new and old customers
The vast majority of your marketing business comes from previous customers and only a portion of it is from new customers. “Failing to resell to your current customer base could have a detrimental effect on your profits.”
