Black Friday and Cyber Monday have come and gone totaling a whopping $13.68 billion in sales. Wow! If that trend continues, it’s going to be a very merry season for retailers, indeed.
But, what if you’re business isn’t merchandising? Does Christmas mean something different for manufacturing and service businesses?
The fact is that Christmas is coming no matter the business type. Showing that you are joining in the holiday spirit as a contributing part of your community is marketing without marketing at all! Are you ready? These tips can help you make the most out of the holiday season.
Deck The Halls
Spruce up your business inside and out! Decorating for the season is a moral booster for employees and draws attention to your business. The more spectacular, the grander the reaction from all. (Don’t forget your social media accounts and website! Get those signs of the season on everything!)
Send Out Cards
A simple postcard depicting your sentiments for the season with your company name, logo and contact info will suffice. No pitches, just well wishes.
Invite Santa To Stop By
And, should you choose to fill his sack with simple gifts to distribute… Ho! Ho! Ho!
Sponsor A Toy Drive
Contact Toys For Tots, The Salvation Army or do some research and help out a family or two in your own community.
Give Away Cookies & Cocoa – Yum! Need we say more? ?
It, truly, is better to give than to receive. Finding ways to give back to your community, your employees and your customers without expecting anything in return is what the Christmas season is all about! So, spread some joy!
