While your customers are living it up at the beach, it’s time to plan a fall strategy that will keep you top-of-mind through December 31st. And Pinterest is your starting point.
Consumers spent $23 billion shopping for Father’s Day in June. As we come together to spend another $84 per person on Fourth of July festivities, you may be simultaneously bracing for a mid-summer sales lull.
For many companies, mid-summer is the time to plan for winter campaigns and make important changes with software and processes. That’s cool. But you may be interested to know more than 75 million students are on their way back to school between July and October (October is when the last few college add/drops can slip by without incurring a grade… remember?).
Prime Day, anyone? While the timetable may be tight to put together a whole, big thing for Prime Day on July 15 – 16, you can certainly take advantage of the mid-year “holiday spirit” by promoting your own big sale that week. In 2022, Prime Day surpassed Cyber Monday 2022 in sales by more than a half-billion dollars in sales.
Pinterest! For the next few weeks, there’s going to be a HUGE jump in Pinterest activity as pinners plan for back-to-school, Halloween, AND Thanksgiving. Yeah. Thanksgiving.
So, yeah… consumers are already planning for the next thing. And you should, too. Now’s the time to start identifying those marketing goals, researching influencers, and coming up with sassy ideas for your fall and holiday marketing.
