Harness Your October Marketing Promotions for Big Sales!

Use your marketing promotions to celebrate:

National Chili Month
National Apple Month
National Popcorn Popping Month
National Pretzel Month
National Seafood Month
National Pork Month

There are food choices for every type of business. Make your promotions healthy fun or guilty pleasures! I’m thinking Chili Cook Offs or have your customers create recipes for apple desserts and use Facebook and Twitter to promote the events.

Pretzels are easily shipped and you can mail them out to prospects with recipes for chocolate dipped pretzels.

October being National Pork Month sounds like its time for a Luau for your customers. Or have a clam bake or shrimp cocktail available for a customer appreciation day.
