If there’s one month that’s filled to the brim with holiday festivities, it’s December. Between Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa and New Year’s Eve, there's always something to use for your December marketing ideas.

For example, you’ve just got to do something with the, “Festival of Enormous Changes at the Last Minute” day. No matter what kind of ‘how to’ products you’re selling, this day is tailor made for a sales campaign.

Then there’s ‘app day’, ‘cookie day’ and ‘cat herders’ day’. You can have all kinds of fun with those.

What if you send out two emails each day during the month of December? Each day you pick one theme, send out an email in the morning with the campaign for that day and a reminder in the afternoon.

For example, “Believe it or not, today is Cat Herders’ Day. Send me a photo of your cat for 10% off the ABC product. Send a photo of your cat with you in the picture and I’ll give you 20% off. Send me your cat and the product is free. JUST KIDDING about that last one, do not send me your kitty!”

Have fun with these and your audience will enjoy receiving and reading your emails.

And they’ll respond with clicks and sales, too.

No – I can't imagine what some of them are either! If you're inspired to find out more, your clients may also have their interest piqued to click and find out.

You can use these for social media posts, blog posts, or email ideas.

Think of ways they relate to YOUR business – the physical products are fairly easy, but remember the motivational ideas – like ‘Look on the bright side say'.

And – it's not mentioned, but you'll need to plan your ‘Start a new diet' and ‘Quit smoking' campaigns in advance for the January rush!

Hopefully those are enough December marketing ideas to get your creative juices flowing as we head towards the busiest time of the year for consumer spending.
