Deck the Halls with Festive Branding
Give your business a holiday “makeover” by incorporating festive elements into your logo, website, and marketing materials. Consider changing one small element of your icon, add some holiday color to your current palette, incorporate a festive banner or emojis into your social media profiles, or make a “limited edition” version of your logo to use just for the holidays. A touch of seasonal flair not only grabs attention but also communicates that your business is in tune with the holiday spirit.
Offer Exclusive Holiday Promotions
Entice and engage your customers with special holiday promotions, specific discounts, or seasonal bundles & packages.

Highlight the value of your products or services as the perfect gift for loved ones.
Give the Gift of Content
Create valuable and shareable content that provides value to your audience. Always ask yourself, is this something I would want to watch or read? If not, don’t post it. Consider a fun countdown or contest. Producing holiday-themed blog posts. Create short, fun Christmas or Hanukkah-themed videos. Repost funny memes or famous holiday tropes. Make helpful holiday infographics that align with your brand. Share tips, recipes, or entertaining content that adds a touch of warmth and helpfulness to your brand identity.
Host Virtual Events
If hosting in-person events isn’t feasible, consider organizing virtual events to connect with your audience. Fun webinars, live Q&A sessions, or virtual product launches – all with a seasonal spin – can keep your brand on top of mind during the holiday season. Encourage participation by incorporating interactive elements and exclusive promotions for attendees. Whether it’s one-time only or as part of a series, virtual events are a great way to keep visitors engaged through the holidays.
Collaborate with Influencers
Always partner with influencers who align with your brand values and resonate with your target audience – especially during the holiday season. Influencers can bring a personal touch to your holiday marketing campaigns, reaching a wider audience through authentic recommendations and creative content. Consider running joint giveaways or sponsored posts to maximize impact and remember to tag all partners and 3rd parties in every post.
Personalized Greetings and Email Campaigns
Instead of only selling or promoting something, send personalized holiday greetings to your email subscribers, expressing gratitude for their support throughout the year. You can certainly incorporate holiday offerings and exclusive promotions, but consider crafting email campaigns that showcase your holiday spirit and share heartfelt messages. Incorporate eye-catching visuals and compelling calls-to-action to drive engagement and really drive home the winter vibe.
