Halloween is just around the corner. This is a great way to touch base with your past clients, network and even your prospects. Its short notice now, but if you have time create little loot bags and give them away this weekend to your past clients who have school age children. Feel free to drop off a pumpkin to those without. I found a great idea for loot bags that are very cute and better yet inexpensive. All you need are some plastic gloves, rockets and some small candies.
For those contacts that are potentially prospects or just in your network, its a good idea to create a mass email that can go out to each recipient directly from your email. You may want to create a blog posting and use that single post to drive traffic to your website via a mass email and / or your social media accounts.
There are so many things that you can go for Halloween to create engagement with your audience. Ask people to post the best costumes that they saw during the night. Or hold a BEST COSTUME contest and give the winner a gift card to a local restaurant. If its not too late, do a pumpkin carving contest, that usually gets a lot of people to enter and connect with you. Post your contents on all of your social media platforms.
Holidays like this allow for fun and out of the box thinking. If you have children, send a loot bag to each child in the class. Making sure everything is safe and free allergens ie: peanuts, tree nuts, dairy etc. In this case you can do candies, like rockets, lollipops, even stickers. Make sure you add a little name tag to the bag with compliments from you.
If you feel that you will not have enough time to get things organized; don’t worry about rushing. Just prepare for the next holiday …Thanksgiving for our American friends and Christmas for our Canadian friends.
HAPPY HALLOWEEN ALL AND REMEMBER TO BE SAFE!
