Marketing your business during the holidays can be overwhelming, and frustrating when traditional methods don’t offer much ROI. Social media is a great way to get the best reach for your buck!

During this week’s podcast we covered a few of the best tips for creating a solid marketing campaign that resonates this holiday season:

  • Create a calendar of holidays that you want to market around

  • Develop promotions that align with business goals – gift card giveaways, discount off for one day, engage with bloggers to feature your products in their gift guide
  • Email your audience and don’t be shy! Take the time to set up e-mail drip marketing campaigns that offer coupon codes, discount or partner giving programs that entice users to engage with your site.
  • Not feeling the holiday spirit? Goofy holidays like Festivus is an awesome and fun way to engage with your audience if you’re not feeling the holidays
A Festivus for the rest of US!
