7 Effective Thanksgiving Marketing Tips

What comes to mind when you think of Thanksgiving? Food, family, shopping, football, even more food.

 While we think you should definitely enjoy those things and spend time with loved ones, make sure you don’t miss this great opportunity to market your business and reach your audience with these effective Thanksgiving marketing tips.

1) Be Thankful!

Thanksgiving is all about being thankful and showing gratitude. Because of that, there’s no better occasion to show your clients, customers, and partners how much you and your business appreciate them. Create a social post, send an email, mail a letter – let them know!

2) Happy Thanksgiving cards

A traditional approach you can use to show your gratitude for your top clients and partners. This simple holiday gesture will raise brand recognition with a personal touch especially if they are hand-written and include a personal message.

3) Social Sweepstakes

Show your gratitude to your clients by offering a sweepstakes during the holiday season. Boost your social presence and spread the word about your business through offering a fun, engaging online sweepstakes or contest and offer a great prize for those that participate. It doesn’t have to be expensive or fancy – something as simple as a thanksgiving pumpkin pie is enough to get your clients excited.

4) Thanksgiving Website Deco

Show off your Thanksgiving spirit by making some temporary design changes to your website. It can be as simple as changing your logo colors or adding a few fun graphics. You could even add a section or blog post with Thanksgiving tips or recipes to drive more people to your site. 

5) Get Your Clients Involved

Get your clients involved by asking your clients what they are thankful for this year. Make a social post and have them comment with pictures, text, or fun gifs.

6) Offer A Thanksgiving Special Or Promotion

Get a jumpstart on your holiday specials, discounts or offers through email, website and social platforms. You could even create a today-only offer in trade for sharing or commenting on your social post.

7) Give Back To Your Community


Embrace the spirit of the Thanksgiving holiday by getting together with your team and/or clients to give back to a good cause or the less fortunate. While this is incredibly rewarding, both personally and in your community, it is a great way to create a buzz about your business in your local market.
