Tis’ the season, the giving season. Create various holiday packages that include your products or services that you could give away to a select few of your loyal customers or random customers. Give your customers the holiday gift of free products/services.
(4) Plan and organize and event
Plan a holiday party at your place of business, home, restaurant or event space to celebrate your customers, clients, employees and family. This is a great opportunity to continue to build your relationship with your customers and build customer loyalty.
(5) Partner with a local charity
While in the giving spirit, find a charity that matches your brand’s vision, mission and values that you can help out this holiday season. By reaching out to your community you will spread awareness for your charity as well as your brand.
