In focus: November and December marketing planning

In focus: November and December marketing planning

In the last of our Autumn Marketing series of blogs, here’s a round-up of opportunities for your organisation to engage with customers during the latter months of the year. Don’t miss out by going into hibernation – let us help you make this Autumn your best yet!

Winter is coming …

At the risk of sounding like a broken record, the earlier you organise your seasonal marketing the more fruitful it is likely to be. We’re already working on projects for 2018 (and beyond!) so NOW is definitely the time to talk to us about your design, print and online marketing for November and December if you haven’t already – and that includes Christmas.

Autumn inspiration

Here’s our run-down of events coming up in November and December that your organisation might want to get involved with or use as a reason to reach out to clients and stakeholders.

Movember / Breast Cancer Awareness Month (all of November) – Increasingly organisations are really getting involved with these awareness-raising campaigns by sponsoring individual employees, holding company-wide events and contacting clients and customers. You can buy fantastic merchandise at the Movember store (with 100% of profits going to the Movember causes) and get free kits and loads of fun fundraising ideas for Breast Cancer Awareness month online via charities such as Breast Cancer Care and Wear it Pink.

If you wanted to create something with your branding on it we’d be happy to help and offer highly discounted rates for fundraising initiatives, often working ‘at cost’ or putting in extra time for free. We’d also be happy to support/promote your activities any way that we can!

Day of the Dead (2nd November) – In case you missed it, check out our Day of the Dead themed blog which is packed with ideas for this increasingly popular celebration – as well as more traditional Halloween design, print and online marketing. And you’ll be pleased to know our prices aren’t remotely scary!

Guy Fawkes (5th November) – Oooh! … Aaaaah! … We love Bonfire Night marketing. Not least because of its epic pun-potential (‘offers that will make you want to explode!’ ‘spa treatments to make you sparkle!’ ‘Banging tunes at our guy fawkes night’ ‘Business is BOOMing’ etc etc). But also because we love creating colourful design, emailers, print, signage, clothing and gifts for events.

BBC Children in Need (18th November) – From giant cheques to selfie frames, you name it we’ve helped our corporate clients design and print it to raise awareness for Children in Need in the past. You can order a fundraising kit and find loads of ideas for schools or workplaces here. As mentioned above, we’re happy to work on fundraising materials at discounted rates, help promote your activities on our social media platforms and support you any way we can!

St Andrews Day (30th November) – A great one for organisations with a Scottish heritage, or pubs and eateries that want to arrange special events celebrating our neighbours over the border. We can help with flyers, menus, themed mailchimp and social media templates, as well as signage, branded clothing and gifts.

It’s CHRISTMAS! (pretty much the whole of December) – We can help with cards and e-cards, advent calendars, branded gift wrap and tags, branded gifts, branded Christmas decorations, branded signage and clothing for events, themed social media and emailer templates, printed and online adverts, catalogues and brochures. We’re putting the finishing touches to Christmas marketing for many of our clients so now is the time to talk to us if you haven’t already!

We hope you’ve found our Autumn Marketing series inspiring. For impartial, experienced and competitive design, print and online advice all year round, talk to our friendly, professional team on 0208 590 0922 or email us at
