Why Holiday Marketing is Important

Holiday sales are expected to grow up to 4% since last year, and your business can see revenue growth too. The holidays present the perfect opportunity to expand your customer base because everyone is looking to spend extra money on loved ones, as well as themselves.

Here’s the most recent data from the National Retail Federation’s Holiday Planning Playbook:

  • 55% of consumers will start researching holiday gifts, and 33% of consumers start purchasing holiday gifts before November.
  • 47% of Millennials and 31% of Gen X find gift inspiration on Facebook.
  • 50% of holiday shoppers are influenced to purchase because of a limited-time offer.
  • 47% of Millennials and 31% of Gen X find gift inspiration on Facebook.

As the data shows, now’s the time to start marketing your holiday promotions as your customers are already researching and making purchases. Don’t forget that limited-time offers and seasonal flavors make your products and services more enticing.
