With less than two weeks left until Christmas and even less to Channukah, now would be a good time to make sure that you have done all of the Holiday Marketing tasks to keep your message and good wishes in front of your prospects, clients and customers through the holiday season and into the new year. Often people think that it is too late in the season to order and deliver their gifts, or that the gifts that they give will be lost in the avalanche of other gifts that the recipients get in those last few weeks of the year; this is not the case if you plan carefully even at this late date and make sure that your gift is either a standout (that does not mean expensive) or you target it to arrive with New Years wishes in the first full week of January. This is especially true of employee gits and recognition programs.
Here is the checklist:
Social Media Profile Holiday Cover Photos
Social Media Profile Holiday Wishes Posts Scheduled
E-cards Created and Scheduled
Holiday Letter or Snail Mail Cards Addressed and Stamped
Holiday Gifts for Clients/Customers
Holiday Gifts for Vendors and Support Resources
Holiday Gifts for Employees
Gifts Wrapped and Ready for Shipping
Promotional Calendars Ordered with Mailing List Submitted to Vendor
Auto-responders Set for Vacations and Closures
Voicemail Message Set for Vacations and Closures
Employee Awards and Recognition Gits Ordered
To-do list to Jump Start the New Year Prepared
Remember, the most important thing is to convey your good wishes, better a thoughtful gift delivered in January than an anonymous bottle of wine delivered on Decmeber 24th or Champagne on the 31st.
