Holiday Advertising: Maximizing Halloween

Greetings fellow PPC’ers! Today’s blog post focuses on marketing offers around the Halloween holiday.  Far too frequently in 7Search-land there seems to be an increase of advertising the week before Halloween. Ummmm…keep in mind that consumers are researching,preparing and making purchases well before then. Unfortunately, if you’re late in the advertising game you lose out on capturing the consumer’s dollar. It’s Time to Start Advertising for Halloween right now! Remember that there are only 4 wicked Weeks left until Halloween!

Early Bird Gets the (gummi)Worm

Jump starting your holiday advertising allows for more time to experiment with different offers.  It also gives additional time to test, optimize, compare the performance, and test some more!  Getting in on trending Halloween related keywords like Halloween Decoration ($0.04 top bid), Halloween Costume ($0.07 top bid), Halloween Recipe ($0.04 top bid), Halloween Music ($0.04 top bid) and hundreds of additional holiday-related keywords before they spike for the last minute shoppers. Now that’s a treat your bottom line can appreciate.

Tricks: They aren’t all bad :)

Holiday advertising requires an aggressive approach. To get your campaigns off on the right foot, remember to:

  • Formulate a clear cut approach for your campaigns.
  • Select multiple offers to advertise simultaneously.
  • Define what your CPA will be per offer.
  • Set a realistic budget (and stick to it).
