End-of-Summer Marketing Ideas - With the summer season soon to be coming to a close, as well as depending on the current location of your small business, chances are you will end up noticing a change regarding your customer base, as well as exactly how often they're visiting your business. No matter what your situation may be, there are always some great ideas to help with promoting your business during this time of year.
Here are three useful end-of-summer marketing ideas to consider for your business.
*First, there's the traditional sidewalk sale. In the event that your shop is located where there's a great deal of foot traffic, this is perhaps the best way to attract shoppers. Take the time to set out merchandise tables, clothing racks, and more, as well as come up with a special offer for all of your customers that decide to purchase goods at the sidewalk sale itself. For instance, you could choose to offer them a small-sized gift or even a voucher that's good for some sort of discount on their next full-price purchase.
*Next is celebrating a fun non-official holiday during this time of year. There are all kinds of these that take place during the month of August, such as National Banana Split Day, National Lemonade Day, National Chocolate Milkshake Day, and National Cheese Pizza Day. Even better is the fact that you can use all of these as a way to celebrate with your customers.
*End Summer Marketing Texas. Finally, there's the old fashioned “dog days of summer.” This phrase often refers to the final days of July and the first few weeks in August in the Northern Hemisphere. This is the time of year when the weather is generally more hot and humid. For this type of event, you can do such things as placing all of your summer merchandise on sale, hosting a fundraiser for your favorite animal non-profit or your local Humane Society animal shelter (where you can offer special discounts to those who make donations to the cause), and so much more.
