It is renowned in the data industry that December is the quietest time of the year, budgets are gone and nearly all companies are closing down for the holidays. So, how can your advertising and marketing strategy ensure you make the most out of the next 6 weeks before 2013 finishes?
There are a few rules you can apply:
Keep your business products and services at the forefront of your clients thoughts.
It may be winding down time, but the need for your products or services doesn’t change. For example, here at MarketingFile we encourage our clients to make the most of the festive period and keep their marketing activities prominent within their own market places.
Ensure your marketing is still relevant
Targeting is crucial all year round, so don’t drop trip up at the last hurdle.
