Creative Marketing Ideas for a Sizzling Summer

Is anyone else feeling the heat?! Although summer is a glorious time of barbeques and never ending Pimms (in our case at least) it can be a slow time for some businesses, with many of us holidaying to enjoy the hot weather while it lasts. So how can a business stay ahead with creative marketing in the summer months?

Summer swag is a sure winner. Yes, we’re loving the weather, but summer comes with its own set of problems – the heat for one thing. Whether it’s giving out ice lollies with your flyers or thinking of useful promotional items to cool your customers, summer swag will keep your business in the frame.

Host a local event. The perfect opportunity to connect with customers and clients, summer is also a time for celebration – hosting outdoor events is a great idea for engaging. Make your summer events relaxed though – don’t overload people with industry knowledge and guest speakers, but thank your clients for their custom with an event to make your presence known.

Do a giveaway. There’s so much to gain from a giveaway and they can boost sales significantly. On average, a giveaway can generate 400 new customers! A giveaway can boost your sales, engage and grow your social media following and give you an opportunity to learn about your audience. Make it a celebration of summer!

Summer can be a slow time, but with simple yet creative marketing you can ensure your business leads from the front, not only in summer but in preparation for busier times of the year.
