Free Christmas Marketing Tips Web Design Updates For Winter


Updating your website with relevant, inviting images will be a warm welcome for the Christmas holiday season.  In the time of year where everything seems decorated, your website should be no exception!  When clients land on your website with timely holiday images, it echoes care and thoughtfulness to their user experience.  It also tends to get people more in the spirit of holiday shopping!  Simply place several Christmas and winter-themed graphics on your website.  This can be something as simple as sprinkling in a few graphics, to going all-out with an entire winter skin for your website.  This will convey that your website is not stagnant but living, breathing extension of your company. 

Combining prominent Christmas / Winter images with your brand will convey a strong holiday message to visitors, and will provide a considerate approach to your organization’s online presence.   It is not just about trying to make a quick sale, it is about developing a meaningful relationship with your clients, and potential clients, through your promotional advertising.  So many times we hear that consumers are simply not aware of a holiday promotion or event… marketing is merely getting your brand message out in a logical and attractive way.  This marketing can also drive sales, and show how your organization solves problems for your clients.  You don’t have to “spam” your advertising, but let your company sell itself with a cohesive web design that screams “we have our stuff together” on the internet. 

You can also incorporate customized holiday landing pages into your web design.  These can either be a created landing page for a potential client to land on offering a particular deal or incentive, a group of holiday specials, or coupled with a custom form created to capture client contact information.  You are not just building up your client base, but you are creating a life-long relationship with individuals who love your brand.  Include the use of specialized urls to track your social media, print, and email marketing campaign effectiveness. 

Want to really gain new contacts?  Offer something completely free, and place a landing page stop before they get there.  You can offer a free gift, a gift card to your store, a branded item with your company logo, valuable information, etc.  This is an excellent way to build up your client base around the Christmas holiday!

Free Christmas Marketing Tips Custom Graphic Design


Custom graphics are so simple, so effective!  Developing unique graphics that pair your particular brand, products, or services with the holiday season can leave a lasting impact on your clients.  Stand out above copy cat competition, who recycle other people’s images or haven’t updated their holiday look for the past decade.  In today’s day and age, when advertising is an open door, you really have to take advantage of the unique services you offer to rise above the chatter.  Let your voice be heard this holiday season with graphics that highlight incredible savings, seasonal specials, and pairing your brand with strong holiday images presented in a unique and thoughtful way.  Offer something new and compelling from the hum-drum everyday consumers have grown so accustomed to.   Plus, let’s be honest, stealing other company’s images and common marketing tactics just comes off as tacky to consumers – they’re not stupid.  In addition to turning off those you are looking to attract, you can open yourself up to legal repercussions if the copying is on copyrighted images.  Lawsuits are not fun. 

Developing unique graphics to communicate your holiday offers.  Advertising studies have shown that visual marketing attracts more clients than text (messages in text only) alone.  Using custom graphics in social media, on your website, and in print marketing, will go a long way.  When considering a social media campaign, know that images typically rank higher in user feeds than text ads alone.  So be sure to include an attractive, considerate, and relevant image to your brand this season.

FREE Christmas Marketing Tricks Email Newsletter Campaign


It is commonly understood that the best source of new sales is actually through past clients you have already won over, and can continue to win over with repeat business.  A great area to start in for your holiday marketing efforts can be found right in your past client list.  We understand that not every small business may have a database, but hopefully you have a list of past clients that include email addresses, even if it is a simple export of your email contacts. 

The reason Targeting Pro Marketing emphasizes past client marketing so much, is because this is the group you should offer your best deals, discounts, and promotions as a strong  “thank you for your business” message of appreciation for the holiday season.  A clever and convenient way to capitalize on your past client contact list is through their personal email.  With a comprehensive email list, sending exclusive deals or discount codes via an email marketing campaign will show your brand as thoughtful and considerate.  That being said, if you don’t want to feel overly “salesy” in December, you can easily send out a holiday message to your past clients simply to touch base and keep up your brand awareness, without the use of a call to action to make a purchase. 

Please note that if you are updating your blog frequently (and we know you are, right?), you can easily pair those article posts that are bursting with information by hitching their content to your newsletter.  This will not only draw clients back to your blog and/or website, but you can also offer valuable only-your-brand-provided info to them.  Clients will look at what your organization has to offer, which means it is an opportunity for clients to learn more about your brand, and to establish yourself as a knowledgeable industry leader with helpful information.  Never underestimate the power of a strong blog article with proper grammar, punctuation, and spelling to show off your knowledge and professionalism – it really does go a long way!

Hit them in the mailbox!  There is no doubt we live in a highly digital world – so much of our lives are now in digital format including news, weather, information, articles, books, etc.  Even though we are in a highly digital world, there is a huge misconception for businesses that print marketing is dead.  NO!  Print most certainly lives!  Being highly digital, we are constantly bombarded with digital advertising, emails, websites, ads, social media, and more.  Stand out above the crowd and give your clients something tangible this winter season with a promotion they can get their hands on.  Whether you develop clipable coupons, holiday flyers, tri-fold informational brochures, contact tear-offs, postcard mailers, standard letters, signs or banners, customize your promotions with print media.  Another useful tip: Use custom url’s in your print campaign to gauge effectiveness!

Free Christmas Marketing Ideas Professional Photography Help


Let’s face it, in some industries, digital graphics may not always be able to cut the mustard at the Christmas table.  Sometimes your best products, professional services, or your brand, can only be conveyed properly by being captured in a photograph.  This Christmas, consider professional photos as a way to offer compelling images to your clients and potential clients.  A picture certainly is worth a thousand words!  Pairing your brand with holiday-themed photography can push you ahead of your competition this year, as so many small businesses neglect to capitalize on this powerful marketing avenue.  Targeting Pro Marketing has done professional photography for industries such as restaurants, catering, real estate, construction, gardening, landscape, wood working, tech and more!  If your goods or services are tailored for the seasons, then your marketing should be as well – and Christmas is no exception!  If you are not including relevant images to your marketing routine, your may be missing out on a huge opportunity for this major revenue-generating holiday.

Free Christmas Marketing Tips and Tricks Blog Content


We know as a small business, that keeping fresh, relevant content on your blog can be difficult.  This is especially true when you are trying to keep up with the holiday rush as it is, and planning for your own family behind the scenes.  Never underestimate the power of a great blog article!  Here at Targeting Pro Marketing, we cannot stress enough the extreme importance of unique and timely content to gain organic web traffic.  If you really want to gain traction for your business, the best way to blast forward is with a powerful and lively blog that doesn’t rest for the holiday season.  When your organization pairs unique informational articles with email and doubles up with social media, you can really push traffic to your website and create an exponential platform for your firm foundation of solid content. 

Not sure where to start?  If you already have a blog, don’t feel intimidated by jumping right back in to this powerful digital platform.  Write relevant informational articles pertaining to your industry, your brand, your products, and the services you provide above and beyond your competition.  Be sure to include topics like what types of problems your organization solves, what types of services you provide to clients, your focus on business-to-consumer or business-to-business, who your target audience is (age, sex, geographical location, etc), and take the time to answer some of the more common questions your clientele has.  Do you get common questions over and over again?  Why not answer them in a blog article?  Not only will there be a good chance your clients will first search the internet for specific questions, gaining you organic search engine traffic, but you will have an informational trail always leading back to you as an expert in your field.  Keep your target audience in mind, and what types of issues your company or products solve for them.  Tailor your articles to include that helpful information people first research online.  Coupling your unique blog content with compelling custom graphics will really give the one-two punch for readers AND is exactly what search engines are looking for!
