Considering sending a holiday promotion? Here are some tips and
resources to get
the ideas flowing!
Take advantage of holiday specials.

Consider a sending a New Year's
promotion. Companies do a lot of goal-setting and budget planning in the New Year. A well-timed and clever promotion can get
without getting lost among mounds of holiday cards.
Or, send a Thanksgiving card. A hand
written "thank you" goes a long way in creating a memorable impression with clients.
Explore other media. Try creating a
fun holiday video or animated e-card to share with your clients.
As with every marketing endeavor, make sure you create a look and feel that speaks
to your target audiences and is consistent with your brand standards. Take the time to craft your message and design your piece!

Aimee Pelletier, Owner of Darn Knit Anyway in Stillwater,
"I hired Mix Creative to help me brand my new yarn and fabric shop. As a start up
retail business, I had a very limited advertising and marketing budget. Katrina did everything she could to ensure I was getting the most bang for my
marketing buck. She developed the design concept and finalized our logo, signage, stationary, business cards and website. Katrina continues to work
with me to develop a marketing strategy. I am confident that the work Katrina has done has helped position my company for success! I highly recommend
Katrina and Mix Creative."
