Last minute marketing ideas for Christmas

I think we can all agree that Christmas seems to come round quicker each year, the holiday isn’t just filled with food and presents but is also one of the most important times for marketing professionals, with companies competing for the best spot.

We’ve got some awesome ways that SMS will help you and your business this Christmas…

Last minute marketing ideas

Christmas is often the holiday when people take the opportunity to spend quality time with friends and family, they use it as a detox from work. This means it is likely they have mentally switched-off from their emails for a couple of weeks, therefore, those marketing emails will be left unread until they log back in after Christmas – when it’s too late! You can take the opportunity of sending out your marketing campaigns via SMS.
