The holidays are a great time to build your business. Everyone is excited to purchase gifts for family and friends and create memories with nourishing holiday meals. Creative holiday promotions can really impact this year’s profits. Here are some great ideas. You will need to start early!
- Make a display of a few gift ideas and tags from the webinar. There were so many fun ideas for holiday gifts in our webinar a couple of weeks ago. Make up a few of these, including the gift tags to have on display when customers pick up their #11 orders. They will be excited to see such great ideas and will want to add AP items for gifts for Christmas. Don’t forget to have our beautiful gift tags on display also to let them know all the work is already done; all they have to do is print the tags and wrap the gifts.
2. Have a Treasure Hunt contest for #12. How it works is you choose an item in the catalog to give away. Since it’s a holiday catalog; promote one of our great gifts on pages 44-45. Give customers the item number and have them search the catalog and tell you what the item is. Everyone who names the correct product is entered in a drawing to win that item. It gets your customers searching through the catalog; and of course they will see lots of things they want to buy.
3. Offer Alison’s Pantry Gift Certificates. Everyone has those difficult people on their gift lists. Why not offer an AP gift certificate for those hard to buy folks? Everyone loves food and we have such a great selection! You could even get new customers out of the deal.
*Bonus Idea- Have a holiday Facebook photo contest. Have your customers post pictures of their favorite AP holiday foods, or their Thanksgiving celebrations, or even their ugly Christmas sweaters! Offer an AP product as a prize for the winner.
