Yes, it is finally here… October. The month for many loved things here in America, such as Fall, pumpkin spiced lattes, autumn attire, and the beautiful changing of the leaves. Oh, and of course, one of our favorites, Halloween! Whether or not you’re the type of person that starts hanging up Halloween decorations on October 1st at 12:01am, or the type of person without even a pumpkin on their stoop, most of us can’t deny that we love the Halloween festivities and decorations that surround us in October. Just the ambience on its own is nostalgic and exciting, regardless of whether or not we participate in the Halloween festivities.
As a business, it is important for you to utilize holidays and the various seasons for your marketing efforts and campaigns. It is important to let your consumers know that you care enough to bring a little excitement to their lives by participating in the Halloween fun. Regardless of what type of business you are working with, there is always something you can do to participate in the fun. Halloween advertising in Dallas is something to take part in, so, if you are having trouble coming up with some ideas to make your marketing efforts a bit more Halloween festive, we are here to help. Check out some of our ideas below:
Playing dress up
This can be taken a few ways, but what we really want to get at, is dressing up your store. Throw up some Halloween decorations in your store to get people in the festive mood. Whether it is a Halloween window display, a cut out, or a few pumpkins or candles here and there, there are all types of decorations to choose from no matter which direction you prefer to go in. As for yourselves, of course we encourage a little festive wear on the actual day of Halloween, who doesn’t want an excuse to step out of ‘uniform’?
Events & contests
Events are great ways to let people know you are in the Halloween spirit. By sponsoring a party or hosting one yourself you can have fun as well as be there for your consumers. Just make sure you let people know ahead of time so that they can plan prior to the party and make sure to attend. You can even throw Halloween-themed contests on your social media pages and get people a bit more interactive! Try offering Halloween discounts, get people’s attention, and spread the word!
Digital dress up
Of course, you should be posting a few Halloween-themed posts, etc., on your social media pages, etc., but why not dress up your site a bit too? Google does it almost every day, and especially on holidays (ever notice how the Google logo looks a bit different on some days?) Now, you don’t have to get that extreme, but even by adding a banner or a Halloween-themed image somewhere on your site you can show a bit of Halloween spirit (remember to keep it tasteful, these kinds of things can go either really bad or really good!).
