Ashe Design is having a HUGE Christmas in July Sale with all Christmas Cards and Bundles on sale for half price. “But it’s only July,” you think? Why should I stock up holiday designs now?
If the great prices aren’t enough, think about this.
You’ll want to schedule the bulk of your Christmas sessions in October and November. If you get lucky, you’ll start in September – you love the early birds when you’re in this business.
This means you’ll need to start marketing your Christmas sessions in August or early September. Now, technically, you’re not required to have designs to start marketing, but it sure does help.
You can combine our Christmas Designs with our Website Displays to make beautiful ads that can be share in eNewsletters, on your website and on Facebook.
You can also print samples at a few labs. Do this right away, so you can have studio samples of all your designs … you’ll definitely want those before sessions start!
Here are some other marketing ideas to get more holiday sessions!
Send a sample holiday card as a marketing piece with information about booking a session.
Order customized samples and send each of your clients over the last year a customized sample card. Hopefully they’ll book another session, but if not maybe they’ll at least order cards.
Leave samples with your logo and phone number on the back at businesses you partner with. Places where customers linger for a while is ideal (hair salons, spas, etc.)
