There are a couple of weeks remaining for Thanksgiving Day – it falls on November 23 this year. Take the opportunity to join in the festivities and gain the goodwill of customers and employees! Here are a few Thanksgiving marketing ideas that can take your brand forward in the right direction. Use one or more of them to gain a marketing edge over your competition.
1. Reach out to existing customers
Send Thanksgiving cards with personalized messages to existing customers to show that they are not forgotten. These cards will help customers remember your brand in a fond way, helping you retain their patronage for a long time.
2. Offer a free home-delivered Thanksgiving Dinner!
Cooking for Thanksgiving Day is like a ritual many people love to perform! They invite family and friends to partake in the delicious and fulfilling meal. Cooking a Thanksgiving meal, however, is a time-consuming and stressful task. So, it makes sense to launch a campaign that provides the winner with a delicious Thanksgiving meal delivered straight to his/her home! Don’t forget to announce the winners in advance!
3. Distribute Gift Cards
A gift card is a great way to show your gratitude. Offer gift cards that allow cherished customers/employees to gain exciting discounts at your store or any business in the area. Coupons and other offers are a great idea too. Prominently display these cards/offers on your primary website and social media platforms so that more people notice and take advantage of them!
4. Donate to a charity
Identify charities that are in need of donations – approach one or more of them and make a contribution to ensure they have a memorable Thanksgiving Day! The contribution could be through money or practical giveaways that can be put to use immediately by the needy.
5. Launch a Photo Contest on social media
Invite followers on Facebook and Twitter to send in their favorite Thanksgiving photographs. Set a generous deadline to ensure that a lot of people share their photographs. Make sure that the contest goes viral by aiming for a lot of shares and likes. Announce prizes and give them away in a timely and efficient fashion!
