Marketing Ideas for September


Here are a few marketing ideas kick start the autumn!

School starts 
Back to school promotions are great (and everywhere). Back to school-related offers are obviously going to be in your marketing mix if you target kids. But look at the other side as well.  If you have a product that appeals to parents, maybe encourage them to have some time for them now with pampering or shopping (it’s their holiday now!).

It’s also about learning so maybe this is a time you can offer ‘How To guides’ on your products or services (a great way to reduce churn) or some other way to help your audience learn a new skill.

Marvellous Marketing…

Back in December 2019, Emily Crisps bought outdoor advertising space for April 2020, expecting the busy Easter bank holiday weekend to be the ideal time for their campaign to go live. When they realised that April would be anything but busy, their marketing team quickly changed their message to make light of the situation.

Love that they responded with good humour.
