The holiday season gives you a great opportunity to incorporate current trends, holiday themes, and your brand, into one creative campaign. Automate the process as best you can so you can allow the customers to share the content with their friends while you focus on moving merchandise quickly.

3. Focus More on Social Marketing

4. The Power of Influence

It is important that your marketing efforts incorporate good old word of mouth advertising.

Your audience is more likely to respond positively when they see a friend or coworker already using your products. Use social media to get feedback from customers who have already utilized your services this year, and find a way to encourage them to share that message with their inner circle of followers and fans this holiday season. Your message will be met more receptively when sent from a close friend.

5. The Seamless E-Commerce Process

If you can monetize all of your marketing channels, you stand the best chance of leveraging your brand during the holiday season.

The process needs to be seamless from the marketing campaign to the website, to the shopping cart. There are several payment platforms like Apply Pay and PayPal that allow you monetize your social media profiles too.

If you make it easier for a person to purchase across all your advertising campaigns, you stand a better chance of having a huge selling season this year.
