Deck Your Website With Boughs of Holly... And Some Other Seasonal Advertising Ideas That Will Rock Your World

Now that Halloween is over, you know what that means, GLAD WORKS friends!

It’s time for all the other stuff—Thanksgiving, Chanukah, Christmas, Kwanza, Festivus, Wintereenmas, New Year’s, what have you! It’s nothing but fast-paced action from now until 2012, so we thought we’d take this opportunity to share some of our seasonal advertising ideas with you.

Season’s Greetings!

You may think this is a little outdated, but it’s still a cool idea: Company Christmas Cards. With everything being done electronically these days, don’t you kind of miss getting fun stuff in the mail? People love getting cards! If you want to avoid the whole December rush, you could always send out Thanksgiving or New Year’s cards, too. Hardly anybody does that so you should definitely consider it if you don’t want to risk getting lost in the pile of other holiday mailings. Of course, as always, we’re willing to help you with all of that. We even create personal cards for people to send to friends and family!  We strive to make everyone look beautiful, not just business owners, you guys. Oh, and if you really wanna take it over the top, did you know we can design customized postage stamps for you?

Make it Personal

Ok, so you’re not too cracked up about the idea of a holiday card. That’s fine because you can personalize just about anything under the sun and distribute it amongst your many wonderful and loyal customers. You can go WAY beyond pens and calendars here. You can personalize M&M’s, or you can paste custom labels on bottles of champagne for New Year’s Eve. The options here are nearly limitless, so basically, if it exists, we can help you figure out how to get your logo on it. 

Email Marketing Campaigns

Email marketing campaigns are easy and inexpensive ways to reach out to your customers. Holiday and season changes are a great time to send out special offers and promotions!

You know how Google always has something cute going on with their logo?  Did you notice the Halloween thing they did on Monday?  That was cool, right?  Those wily Google people! You never know what to expect! Your website can be full of pleasant surprises just like Google. This is a really fun thing to do, and it gives your visitors something to look forward to when they hit your site. You don’t even have to make this a once a year thing--you can do it for every holiday if you want to. You can even do it just…because!  But as long as we’re being so festive right now, why not take it a step further and change your Twitter page too?  You can really go nuts here and it’s not going to cost you very much to do it either.

Videos and Stuff

TV Commercials and Radio Spots can be great at this time of year, but have you also considered creating a video card to send around via email and or post on YouTube? Have you ever gotten one of those cute little animated email cards that you just had to forward to someone because it was just so cool?  Those can go viral pretty quickly, and some of them circulate for years. We’re just saying.

When it comes to making an impact during the holidays, all you need is a little creativity and a willingness to have a little fun with it. Whether you have a big budget or a small one, you have lots of options to choose from—but hurry! It’s time to get moving if you’re going to make a splash this holiday season!
