Holiday sales can be as much as 75% of a companies’ annual profits1 so there’s no doubt that the current spending season is vital for many businesses. In this lackluster economy it’s tempting to cut back on your advertising budget, but this is the time for a marketing push. The L.A. Times had a recent article describing a Holiday performance with acrobats suspended up to 80 feet in the air doing somersaults and soaring about in red sparkly outfits.
This was not a Cirque du Soleil act, but rather a holiday evening at the Beverly Center Mall.2 This extravagant campaign designed to get people to come out and, oh by the way, spend some money, is clearly not something most of us can afford to do in order to boost seasonal sales. But don’t despair, a series of smart marketing choices can still add up to a campaign that connects with your customers and is different enough to help your message stand out from the season’s clutter.
