Holiday marketing ideas for creating textALERTS

Labor Day has come and gone and summer officially ends on 9/23/14, but that doesn’t mean you should neglect your textALERT marketing efforts.  Take advantage of this time of seasonal change and promote your business in new and creative ways.  It is still too early for Halloween or Thanksgiving and your customers are trying to think of things to do before the cold weather comes.  These times can be great opportunities to reach out to your subscribers and bring them back to your shop, restaurant, juice bar, etc.  New holiday marketing ideas are sometimes hard to come by as everything has been done before.  Before the popular holidays take over your marketing efforts, try using some of these lesser-known holidays.

Every single day on the calendar now has some type of holiday associated with it. Some of them are very specific and/or a little weird and maybe don’t apply directly to your business.   However, some of them may spark a fun idea for a quick textALERT promotion to bring your customers in and boost your sales.

Here is a list of such holidays for the next few weeks:

September 17th, Wednesday – Constitution Day
September 18th, Thursday – Water Monitoring Day
September 19th, Friday – Talk Like A Pirate Day
September 20th, Saturday – Punch Day
