Is it ever too early to mention Christmas?
Have you booked your Christmas party yet?
You may have a big bash or a quiet meal, a generous bonus or just enjoy a bit of time off, Christmas, for us though, is the one time of year we get to take a whole week off, so it is never too early for me to start thinking about it!
Even though we don't get to print the volume of cards, calendars and diaries that we used to that is not going to stop me from blatantly trying to drum up interest in promotional print at Christmas. There are so many promotional opportunities to be had in the run up. It is the best excuse, should you need one, to say 'thank you' to your clients, maybe even to send them a little gift. It is a great time to sell vouchers as presents for those 'got everything' types and run incentives to buy more for less. "BOGOF", "3 for the price of 2", "get the cheapest item free" - offers like these are so tempting when we have a big list of people to buy for and now is the time to kick-start your campaigns.
Christmas is also the time of year when we should remember to be charitable and raising funds for a local good cause is a wonderful way to raise the profile of your brand and do some good at the same time.
So before you say, 'no thanks' we don't send Christmas cards, print a calendar or dole out diaries anymore, think what a well-timed promotional campaign could do to drive your seasonal sales.
