A Complete Guide to Seasonal Marketing by @AndreaMLehr-1 (completely,marketers,different,advantage,something)

   As we head into the final stretch of the year, most marketers realize we’re encountering consumers with a completely different mindset – one that is filled with twinkling lights, fizzy drinks, time with family, festive tunes, and chilly nights. As a result, most brands are shifting their messages and content so it speaks directly to this new (albeit predictable) mindset.
  This shift is known as seasonal marketing, and even if your company doesn’t offer something your consumer can wrap up with a bow, you can still take full advantage of the holiday season – particularly because of its cyclical nature.
  In this post, I’ll take a closer look at what we mean by seasonal marketing and outline a guide your brand can use to make the few changes needed to make the most of these consumer trends that come around once a year.
  What Is Seasonal Marketing, and Is It for Everyone?

  Seasonal marketing is pretty much exactly what it sounds like: Throughout the year, brands will adjust their marketing strategy to align with holidays to capitalize on inherent interest. Consumers behavior shifts throughout the year because of these timely events, and to remain competitive, marketing strategies and tactics need to shift, as well.
  Most people think year-end events like Black Friday and Cyber Monday when they hear seasonal marketing, so if you’re not in retail, you might be thinking, “Is seasonal marketing really for me?”
  The short answer is yes, in large part because all you need get started is a calendar to identify upcoming holidays that offer the opportunity for timely content. You don’t need to be in the e-commerce industry to reap the benefits.
   Consider music streaming service Spotify. To celebrate another year with their listeners, they launched their “A Year in Music” campaign, which allowed users to see their most-streamed tracks from the previous year along with their favorite genres. It was an incredibly simple idea that relied only on year-end nostalgia.
  The point is, though, that a lot of companies – including yours – can benefit by tapping into consumers’ holiday psyches, and the best seasonal marketing ideas go beyond sales and specials. Here’s how to offer content that is in tune with timely interests while also providing value to your consumers – an essential ingredient for success.
  Timing Is Everything

   Marketers spent nearly $600 billion on ads last year, so it goes without saying that success in today’s crowded ad space is all about getting your content in front of the right audience at the right time. The difficult part is predicting when and where that is, but luckily holidays offer a definitive answer in regards to time.
  So, what are some ways you can make seasonal timing work to your advantage?
  
       
  • Start early: An easy way to break through the noise is to be the first person to start it. Launching a seasonal campaign before your competitors is a great way to ensure your message is seen by your target audience.   
  • Promote your content often: Although specific holidays usually only last a day, there’s usually a lot of build up. Take full advantage of the months, weeks, and days before a holiday to ensure your consumers see your content.   
  • Be consistent: Whether or not your content is new or exactly the same, if your consumers expect something seasonal from you, make sure you deliver it – and on time.  
  You Don’t Need to Reinvent the Wheel

   One of the best parts about seasonal marketing is the ability to recycle your best-performing ideas the following year, so long as you make your content is as evergreen as possible. A great example is Hershey’s “We Wish You A Merry Christmas” commercial. The brand has run the TV spot every year since 1989, making it the longest running Hershey’s commercial of all time. It’s recycled content at it’s finest.
  But you don’t need to reuse the exact same content year after year. Here are some easy ways to repurpose your highest-performing seasonal content:
  
       
  • Bring new life to old content through roundups: Lists are incredibly reliable in generating high social traction – a study from Fractl (my employer) revealed that they could average 21,000 shares  a month – so pull a few stats from old posts to include in an updated “Top 10” list.   
  • Offer it in a different visual format : Have a SlideShare that did insanely well? Turn it into one big infographic. Or perhaps you have an infographic that earned thousands of shares? Break it up into an eBook. You get the idea.   
  • Produce a podcast: Nearly 20% of U.S. adults  listen to podcasts  at least once a month, so if you’ve got a blog post that did well the year before, simply record someone reading it and voila! You’ve got an episode for your podcast.   
  • Share it with influencers: Handing off high-performing content to a third-party is a great way to get some fresh perspective – and additional social traction once they share it with their audience.  
   Another easy way to get into the holiday spirit with minimal effort is a seasonal logo redesign. Google does this year after year with their incredibly popular Google Doodles . To celebrate holidays and other important events, Google has changed their logo more than 2,000 times. Now, you don’t need to create anywhere near that many logos, but a few snowflakes or a pumpkin can go a long way in taking advantage of seasonal interest.

  Remember Holidays Also Impact Search

  Although most SEO strategies focus on long-term gains, the most effective seasonal campaigns also take into account how consumers change the way they interact with search engines during holidays. For instance, “Black Friday deals” will likely peak around November while “fireworks” will peak in July. Marketing teams can count on specific queries like these to trend around the same time each year and should plan their keywords accordingly.
   Let’s use the example of “holiday shopping.” It’s a broad term, but one you could make work for your brand with help from SEMrush ’s related keywords tool. This feature allows users to identify additional queries that are related to a specific keyword but might be more applicable to your brand or service.
