October Marketing Ideas
Spooky season has arrived! Do you have a case of the October Marketing Scaries? We’re here to help! Keep reading to learn more about some of our favorite October marketing ideas.
FOR ONLINE BUSINESSES
Get people active on social media by engaging and having fun with your business page. Give out some kind of recognition or prize for these ideas:
- BLAST FROM THE PAST: Tag us in your favorite Halloween Costume
- Kid’s Edition: Share your child’s costume and receive a $10 gift card
- Best Halloween Decorations: Tag us for a chance to win our Halloween Giveaway Basket!
At least once in October, send out a festive Halloween email campaign. This can be light-hearted and fun. Fill your email with all the fun graphics… Think jack-o-lanterns, ghosts, goblins, vampires – all the fun stuff!
Share a fun photo of your employees dressed up the year prior. People want to get to know you better!
FOR BRICK & MORTAR STORES
Make your storefront a beautiful background for passerby’s to take family photos. Make sure your brand name is noticeable at all angles of where the photo may be taken. When people share their photos on social media, that’s free marketing for you!
Schedule a Halloween open-house and give away candy to the kiddos! If your store is targeted more towards adults, host a fall open-house with a unique autumn twist like “Boos and Brews”.
This time of year we have many fall festivals, cake walks, barn sales and so on. Plan in advance and sign-up for a booth to showcase your business!
