With less than a month to go until Christmas Day 2015, now really is the time to start planning how to share the festive spirit and foster relationships for future business with your clients. Gone are the days when Christmas promotions started in December, you need to start the process early if you have any hope of keeping your prospects warm this winter.
Greetings cards in some shape or form are a must for companies of all sizes. You could opt for a more traditional printed card or alternatively do your bit for the planet and send an electronic version. Either way, it’s a very cost effective way of thanking clients for their custom and encouraging customer loyalty through to 2016 and beyond. Thrive’s creative team are already well under way with the designs for our 2015 festive campaign – the early bird and all that!
With the Christmas party season nearly upon us, you’ve probably already been uber efficient and booked a venue and invited your guests, but what about some branded promotional items for the party itself? Selfie frames can be a great social media tool as well as being a novel, fun and cost effective activity for your guests. Or how about ceiling hangers or printed placards to assist with brand communication? It doesn’t have to cost the earth but if you’re looking to increase interest, drive sales or raise brand awareness ‘every little helps’.
Thinking ahead to the New Year how about a branded calendar or diary for your clients to have on their desks all year round. Give them something they will use on a daily basis and they’ll have a reason to keep your brand at the forefront of their minds. It could be something as simple as a coaster or a desk clock, a paperweight or some post-it notes. Brand recognition should be a goal for all businesses big and small and what better way to increase your brand awareness than customising a product that your client can use all year round?
So this Christmas, avoid trawling the internet for ‘Creative Agency Cheshire’ or ‘Marketing Agency Cheshire’ in search of ideas – instead just give Thrive a call for all your festive marketing needs!
