Your Business Shouldn't Settle for Basic

Being creative and setting yourself apart from your competition is a core value at Flying Pig Sales & Marketing. Christmas has become controversial, Valentine’s Day is only for the social-media perfect relationships, and no one works the week of Thanksgiving. You’ll set yourself apart as a sales and marketing professional when you embrace the unexpected.

National holidays are popping up all over the place like National Hot Dog Day or National Cattle Day. These are perfect opportunities to capitalize on your own signature holiday. Deliver donuts on National Donut Day or host a peanut butter cookie contest on National Peanut Butter Day. Mail handwritten notes in honor of National Compliment Day or plan a social media marketing campaign around National Plan a Vacation Day.

Let's work together to develop a quarter of strategic and unique sales calls based around national holidays or business milestones. Every business is unique, so your sales calls should be, too! Don't be basic.

This year, my signature holiday is going to be Galentine’s Day on February 13. Not only is it fun and #trending, but it embraces the buying power that women have in our society. Read more about that in my blog from last week.

If you’re ready to celebrate Galentine’s Day with me, follow this blog throughout the week, as I’ll share some really fun ideas for marketing yourself and your business along with ways to incorporate Galentine’s Day into your sales calls next month.
