Marketing promotions help you win the hearts and minds of prospects and customers all year long. From events that focus on awareness for conditions like heart health and breast cancer to trade shows and holiday campaigns, you can increase brand exposure and extend the reach of your message, helping your business stand out from a marketplace crowded with competitors.
Timing is an important consideration, but not just for your business and your industry. You should also take into account a holiday and observances calendar too. It doesn’t matter if your audience is consumer or business. Everyone is exposed to advertising and news reports about general events and occurrences like the Super Bowl, Valentine’s Day and Employee Appreciation Day. Why not ride on the coattails and momentum of those efforts?
