Marketing Round the Christmas Tree

Posted by admin at 5:04 PM on Dec 19, 2022


We've been looking forward to Christmas 2022 for over two years now. With the pandemic restrictions (hopefully) behind us we can have the celebration we've wanted with the people we want to spend it with, and after a tumultuous 12 months we cannot wait to get into the spirit of the season and leave our worries behind, if only for a short while.

The run up to Christmas starts at different times for different industries, with consumer retailers planning stock levels and distribution for the 2023 season from now, well over a year before the big event. Marketers join the party a little later, spreading the message to consumers with campaigns conceived anywhere from 8 months to 8 days before the launch; the great thing about digital marketing is that without printed collateral to worry about, or physical distribution to plan, a campaign can be conceived, designed and launched in a short time frame.

While we recommend having a clear plan in advance, it is also worth being reactive to events, as well as pro-active when possible. This is why companies should be prepared to divert budget to a great campaign that capitalises on current events, and be prepared to take some risks when it comes to a digital marketing campaign. This is especially true for brands and businesses who want to be seen as socially responsible and responsive, as well as those in fast paced industries like consumer retailing, where demand can surge.

There's still time to get a Christmas campaign in the works and live before December, so if you have a great seed of an idea, get in touch with the Parua team now. In the meantime, have a singalong to our take on the classic Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree for some inspiration.

Marketing round the Christmas tree

It's a busy old time of year

Everyone spending merrily

Though the economy strikes some fear

Marketing round the Christmas tree

Social channels are lighting up

Sending viral videos to you from me

While this mulled wine we will sup

You will get the urge to spend your money

As you'll see,

Christmas campaigns filling wishlists

While munching on some reindeer biscuits

Marketing round the Christmas tree

Pay-per-click will bring them in

Online shops booming, we will see

And your business is going to win

Your sales pipeline will be filled with riches

Wait and see

Tis the season to be jolly

Deck the halls with gold and holly

Marketing round the Christmas tree

Make a difference here and now

It's not too late for you to see

How our skills make you say Wow.
