The need for holiday marketing
2018 September 24
It’s almost the most wonderful time of the year! Halloween is in 41 days, Thanksgiving is in 63 days, Christmas Eve is in 91 days and the countdown continues for every other holiday in between! As a business, bring in more ROI and customers than ever before with the right holiday marketing strategies.
The holidays are quickly approaching, but are you ready for them?
This is the first step for selling your products. The best time to start a digital marketing or SEO campaign is NOW! Yes, now. It may seem like you’re jumping the gun a bit, but studies and reports show how holidays are the best sales time for e-commerce companies.
A study highlights how quarter four, between October to December, is when companies see the biggest seasonal sales increase! The next biggest quarter for businesses is quarter two which has Mother’s Day and Father’s Day added into those months. Check out the chart below from BigCommerce to see the difference in quarters.
Some companies are filling the shelves with their products as early as September! Don’t be the last one. The next step in your plan? A killer digital marketing and search engine optimization (SEO) campaign! Bring the customers to you and keep them excited for more.
The following step is determining the channels you’ll be focusing on with either digital marketing or SEO. At OMG Austin, we recommend both strategies to bring you the best holiday sales and success.

This is because 59 percent of consumers feel the “right” time to start seeing holiday promotions and advertising is around November. Get your deals and promotions into place!
