Offer Valid: 11/27/2022 - 12/03/2024

For businesses of every size, it's important to have the right marketing strategy for the holidays. With the right marketing strategy, you can bring in a lot of new customers and boost your sales. But with the wrong strategy, you could end up wasting a lot of time and money.

To help you make the most of the holiday season, the Adel Partners Chamber of Commerce has put together a list of holiday marketing tips for small businesses. These tips will help you create a holiday marketing strategy that will bring in new customers and help you boost your sales.

Create an Easy-to-Use Gift Guide

One great way to promote your products or services during the holidays is to create a PDF gift guide. This is a document that features your products or services and provides information on why they would make great gifts. Even if you can’t create a PDF in your word processor, this tool allows you to convert it to a PDF. You can promote your PDF gift guide on your website, social media, and in email marketing campaigns. You can also send it to potential customers and media contacts.

Switch to Holiday Packaging and Gift Wrapping

Another great way to promote your business during the holidays is to switch to holiday packaging and wrapping. This will make your products or services more festive and attractive to potential customers. You can find holiday packaging and wrapping at most craft stores or online retailers.

Host Some Holiday Giveaways and Discounts

Everyone loves a good giveaway or discount, so why not host one for your customers? This is a great way to generate excitement about your business and attract new customers. Just be sure to set some rules so that everyone has a fair chance of winning. For example, you could require people to follow you on social media or sign up for your email list before they're eligible to win.

Add Seasonal Web Content

The holidays are a busy time for everyone, so make sure you're posting useful content on your website. This could include recipes, gift ideas, how-to guides, etc. Anything that would be helpful to your customers during this busy time of year. Not only will this help you attract new visitors to your site, but it will also keep them coming back.

Use Your Social Media Channels

Social media is a great way to connect with potential and existing customers during the holidays. Make sure you're regularly posting updates about your business, special offers, giveaways, etc. You should also take advantage of holiday-themed hashtags to reach even more people. And don't forget to respond quickly to any questions or complaints you receive via social media.

Work Together with Other Local Businesses

One great way to promote your business during the holidays is to partner with other local businesses. For example, you could team up with a nearby restaurant to offer gift certificates or team up with a local florist to offer discounts on flowers. This is a great way to reach new customers and build relationships with other businesses in your community.

Hold a Holiday Event

Hosting an event is a great way to attract attention to your business during the holidays. You could host a festive open house, an ugly sweater party, or anything else that would be fun for your customers (and potential customers). Be sure to promote your event through social media, email marketing, flyers, etc.

Offer Support to Local Nonprofits

Local nonprofits are always looking for ways to raise money during the holidays (and all year round). One great way you can help them out is by donating a portion of your proceeds from sales made during the holiday season (or any time of year). You can also donate items from your inventory or offer discounts on services/products purchased through their organization. This is a great way to give back to your community and attract new customers who are looking for businesses that support causes they care about.

These tips will help you create a holiday marketing strategy that will bring in new customers and help you boost your sales. So what are you waiting for? Get started on planning your holiday marketing strategy today!
