Just kidding.

There are still simple and effective ways to advertise your products for the holiday season. While you might not have the idea insights for a more optimized campaign, there’s still reason to try your hardest!

Email campaigns

Email campaigns are the easiest and most effective way to reach your audience. Hopefully you have an ongoing list from past customers. Fire up your email campaign manager and put together a quick and simple message advertising the products you’d like to push for the season.

Consider incentives for new buyers or even incentives for past customers.

Social Media

Social platforms like Facebook and Instagram have great advertising tools to boost posts, share products, and reach more potential customers.

Most businesses can advertise on social platforms for a reasonable cost within their budget. Keep your target audience at the forefront of your ads, and you’ll increase the chances of lead generation.

Another idea for social media is to promote your business and products within Facebook groups. The idea behind this is buying from a person, not a company. Consumers like human interaction. Be the human behind your product.

Another way to humanize your brand is through live streaming on your social platforms. This puts a face to the product and company.

Party.

Turns out, seventy-six percent of shoppers believe that elite status is one of the biggest perks of a loyalty program.
