This year, make a game plan that includes a variety of marketing methods so that you get the most out of the season and spread some festive cheer to your customers. Here are 6 fun ideas to get your Christmas promotions wrapped and ready!
1. Christmas countdown on social media
Begin your holiday season by implementing a Christmas countdown on social media.Let them know in a fun way, exactly how many days they have left to shop for their loved ones…. just in case they forget.
2. Point collection contests.
Create your own 12 Days of Christmas Promotion, enticing clients to come in to your venue daily to collect points or stamps.
The more they gather, the more entries they receive!
Gift them something small each visit, and tease them with what’s on offer the next day. This is for adults too. Why should the kids have all the fun!
3. THINK NON-TRADITIONAL
Don’t forget to cater for different kinds of groups with your Christmas Promotions.
Could you hold a singles event?
What about drinks for those that want to escape their family?
Non-traditional doesn’t have to mean non-Christmas but instead, it’s a different way of packaging up the fun!
4. SEND OUT GREETING CARDS.
Printed greeting cards are a fantastic way to spread Christmas cheer, as well as keep your brand front and center as a go-to for holiday meals and entertainment.
Design your own card and customize it to suit your message, then print your design so you can send it to your mailing list.
5. GET FESTIVE (AND CREATIVE) WITH DECOR
It’s a no-brainer that you should create a festive environment to brighten your customers’ moods and gets them in the spirit of the season.
But have you thought about taking it a little further?
How about turning your kids area into Santa’s Workshop? Or bringing in a Facepainter ready to create christmas-sy creations on the kids.
Maybe you can set your corner bar up with a fun theme – think elves, snow or the north pole!
6. FOCUS ON THE “RETURN VISIT”
A customer has just had a great meal and is about to pay their bill… Now you have a fabulous marketing opportunity:
Print small flyers about upcoming events and add them to your bill folder.
Maybe go one step further and add a return-visit drink voucher.
There’s never a better time to get someone to come back… than when a happy customer is about to leave after a great experience.
