8 Visual Marketing Ideas for the Holidays

Written by: Maria Parra

Dec 03, 2014

Тhe holidays are a busy time for every organization and business. There is no time to relax because once we put away the Thanksgiving leftovers, holiday decorations and lights go up. A visually stunning marketing game plan is a must if businesses hope to promote themselves well and keep their clients’ eyes on their products or services. Here are some ideas to inspire you for making fun and engaging holiday marketing campaigns.

1. Create a Promotional Calendar

Create a fun promotional calendar in the beginning of the year as an addition to your website. Mark interesting days you’d like to promote with promotions or events, like Cyber Monday and New Year’s.

2. Add a holiday spirit to your Logo

Put a holiday twist to your logo. You’ll want your logo festive and eye-catching, but also recognizable. A santa hat on top or a gift box on the side will do the trick and put the customers in a holiday spirit.


3. Create a Gift Guide

Creating a Holiday Gift Guide is a wonderful opportunity to reach a new consumer base. Write posts supported with pictures and videos, telling your customers why your product is an excellent gift for the holidays.

4. Holiday Facebook Cover

Create new Facebook cover photo to reflect the holidays. This way you’ll remind your customers that celebrating the holidays is something you have in common.


5. Active Holiday Tweeting

Make your business easy reachable on Twitter by creating a holiday hashtag for your brand. Market the hashtag by putting it on your tweets, ie,  #sharejoy #holidaygift



6.  Create contests

Create a holiday themed contest to entertain your customers and have them win big discounts or real prizes.


7. Promotions and discounts

Thank your customers for choosing your business for their holiday shopping, give them a promotion or discount for more return business.
