The holidays are a perfect time to up your marketing strategies. Although It can often be tough to stand out from all the other businesses pushing holiday products, services, and sales with smaller or bigger campaigns, there’s always plenty of opportunity to up your brand strategy to gain new recognition.
Giveaways & collaboration with other brands
Giveaways are an affordable and effective way to gain social media recognition and a way to give back to your followers. When creating an effective collaboration with other brands and influencers, the goal is to partner with those who have a similar target audience to you but are not a competitor. For example, if you’re a specialty food company you might want to collaborate with lifestyle bloggers/influencers who are food-focused to create a holiday giveaway.

This can be anything from adding holiday color schemes and elements to your packaging, promotion deals, gift cards, your ad campaigns, and social media content.
