You don’t need insights and statistics to tell you that people spend more during the holidays. Christmas marketing is a trillion dollar industry worldwide. If your business isn’t promoting both before and during the holidays, you’re missing out on the best time of the year.
If you’re planning to market your brand and offerings over the Christmas season, you will definitely be interested in seeing how a virtual assistant from Outsourcing Angel can help you as you try out these easy and effective Christmas marketing ideas.
Here are 5 marketing ideas your virtual assistant can help your business with this Christmas.
1. Reach out to influencers
Collective Bias released a study stating that 30% of consumers are more likely to buy a product endorsed by a non-celebrity blogger. Influencer marketing is a growing branch of marketing. Your business will benefit with the help of a few credible influencers who can put in a good word for your product. Your virtual assistant can help connect you to the best influencers for your business.
2. Deck the halls of your social media channels
One of the many reasons Christmas is so beautiful is you see it everywhere in the decorations we put up. They’re in malls, in our yards, inside our homes and even on social media. There’s no reason why you shouldn’t decorate your social media channels with some Christmas posts and a couple of Christmas-themed cover photos and profile images. If you’re not a natural artist, you can get a graphic design virtual assistant to help you spruce up your social media channels.
3. Send out catalogs for your holiday deals
People won’t know what to buy if you don’t spell it out for them. We can’t expect anyone to remember our offerings when they’re busy thinking about their travel itineraries and the names of all the extended family members they have to visit! So, get your virtual assistant to push out a few email blasts and social media posts with a list of all your best holiday deals to remind people of your fabulous offers!
4. Get a virtual assistant to help over Christmas
Christmas will be busy no doubt. So make sure that you have all hands on deck when marketing your products and services this Christmas. You’re going to need help with:
- Social media posts

A virtual assistant can help you complete all your tasks and leave you with time to go shopping for your loved ones!

At the center of the celebration is the value of family. And so, appeal to the family as you create your marketing messages. You’ll want to make posters, quote graphics, videos and blogs that will remind people of their loved ones, and consequently also remind them of you. A virtual assistant can help you design meaningful messages to your customers.
