Ready or not, March is here! The month of March has officially arrived, and brings with it even more opportunities to promote your business. Whether you’re a small business owner, marketer or workplace professional, there are lots of ways for you to jump on board the March mayhem of marketing.
Between holidays, events and new ideas, what will you use in your strategy? Check out some of these mind-blowing march marketing ideas for you to take advantage of.
Play on the idea of Spring by centering your efforts around Spring cleaning. For instance, a printing company might run a promotion for direct mail pieces, saying, “Clean up your marketing this spring with fresh direct mail.”
March brings with it the first few glimpses of warm weather, so encourage customers to get outside and enjoy the month. For example, send an email inviting customers to use your products or services as they shake off the cold of winter.
The popular basketball tournament runs throughout the majority of the month, so consider ways to incorporate it through marketing. Host a bracket challenge for employees or customers with a prize at the end, or run a special for the person who can show they had the best bracket.
March is also Women’s History Month, so be sure to include women in all of your marketing materials. Ask customers to share stories about the most influential women in their lives, or share about valued female employees within your company.
Speaking of employees, March 6th happens to be Employee Appreciation Day! Share love for your team members and market the business with employee-driven content, such as a Facebook live interview with an employee.
Soon after, Daylight Savings Time occurs on March 10th. Easily connect with customers by reminding them to set their clocks ahead one hour. This could be a simple social media post that relates to your customers and earns the business bonus points.
Of course, don’t forget about one of the most delicious holiday! National Pi Day is, you guessed it, March 14th. This is a fun and silly holiday which some people might not know of, but you can still use to your advantage in marketing.
Give green for going green! Celebrate St. Patrick’s Day by discounting a product or service for customers who wear green on St. Patrick’s Day. Or, run a social media promotion for customers that post a picture of themselves wearing green and tag the company in it.
The first day of Spring is March 20th, so consider how you can wrap the event into your marketing strategy. It could be anything from a small window sign to a full-on email campaign, all centered around the new, fresh, happy first day of Spring.
Finally, have fun and celebrate National Puppy Day on March 23rd. Post a picture of a team member’s puppy on your social media, ask customers to share pictures of their puppies or offer a discount for customers who bring their puppy into the store. Don’t be afraid to get a little ruff with this one! (Pun intended.)
