Welcome to December, the holidays and the start of a new marketing year.
December can be such a great month, as long as you plan it well and execute the plan with precision. After all, there are decorations to be put up, shopping to be done, bowl games to watch, family to be entertained, holidays to be enjoyed, and — if there is time left — relaxing to be done. It is a busy month, but there are ways to get all of this done. Here is a link to a helpful article for some assistance, because we want you to enjoy this time of year.
Our hope is that you can enjoy December and start thinking about ways to better market your business in 2020. While thinking, ask yourself these questions. Does my logo need updating? Is all of my marketing collateral consistent? Do I need yard signs, business cards, brochures, door hangers? Is it time to turn my company vehicle into a rolling billboard for my company? Is my website easily found by those searching for my product or service, AND do my potential customers LIKE what they see when they find it?
While you’re answering these questions and planning your December schedule, be sure to take in some of the fun opportunities in the greater Hagerstown, MD area. Click on this link to pick and choose from all the great events.
