Be Merry and Avoid Annoying Marketing Ploys.

Kindess is the new Jolly

This Holiday Season, Be Merry and Avoid Annoying Marketing Ploys.

โ€˜Tis the season for quiet reflection. Here are two simple questions you can ask yourself and your company:

Just because we can, should we?

Re-consider implementing trending marketing tactics that interrupt a userโ€™s experience and associates your brand with โ€œUGH.โ€ Examples include:

  • ๐Ÿšซ SMS messages along with calendar and email notifications…do people want your messages littering their social interactions via text?
  • ๐Ÿšซ Gated content: requiring email opt-in or a social media share instead of letting your visitors freely enjoy your content.
  • ๐Ÿšซ Advertising ‘live’ webinars that are clearly pre-recorded.

How can we be kind to our customers?

Itโ€™s a holiday season for some. For others, itโ€™s not. Most people are currently missing someone. So consider extending these meaningful gestures:

  • ๐Ÿ’œ โ€œHow are you?โ€ – check in on a client, friend, or industry colleague you havenโ€™t talked to in a while.
  • ๐Ÿ’œ Give another business a shout-out. While every message seems to be inundated with sponsored mentions and product placement, you can take up a little marketing real estate to just send another business you admire some love.
  • ๐Ÿ’œ Host a virtual get-together for your business, associates and clients. Although many of us are Zoom zonked, we are social beings who value inclusion and an opportunity to connect.
