Christmas can never come too early! At Epicdev we enjoy the festivities (and the holiday break)! We also like to take this opportunity to add a bit of “jolliness” to our marketing strategies. Here are a few of our ideas that we would like to share with you:
Add a Santa hat to your logo, include season’s greetings into your Email Signature and decorate your Facebook page with festive posts and images (torture your staff and get them to dress up as reindeer and elves for photo fun)!
Offer your clients specials on certain products/services or add a special gift to their purchase. You can keep it simple; candy canes, cookies or a branded bauble will do the trick. People love freebies! We think placing a bowl full of festive sweets on your desk or counter top is an A+ idea!
Send them a personalized Christmas card (or even an E-card) and wish them well (and say it like you mean it)! Christmas is a time to bring us back down to earth, it’s a reminder that we are not just in it for the business but that we truly value the people who we come into contact with.
Offer your time, services or make a donation to someone (or a worthy organisation) in need. Not only will you be helping your community but you will have this added opportunity to promote yourself and make new contacts. Everyone gets brownie points for doing good!
This year Epicdev will be supporting Baby Hope House in Pinetown – they are an awesome organisation that takes care of abandoned babies. This NPO is run by two inspiring ladies and they rely solely on donations. Please visit their website to see where you can help: www.babyhopehouse.org.za
PS. We have a drop-off box for Baby Hope House at our office, if you are stopping by we would greatly appreciate a donation of nappies, wet wipes, tissues and/or Purity fruit/vegetables.
