Everyone knows that the Super Bowl is the most watched television event every year. That’s why the advertisements cost millions to air and businesses everywhere are competing for the consumers’ attention during the big game.

But you don’t need to be Doritos or Budweiser to get a piece of the Super Bowl Sunday marketing prize. Here are some quick tips to help you stand out from the competition during the big game:

Localize

Unless you are a Fortune 500 company, chances are you won’t have the resources or budget to compete with the TV ads themselves. And that’s fine—you don’t need to do so. The key is taking a worldly event and make it local to what you provide and offer.

Pizza places, for example, will offer certain deals and specials during the game. It can be anything—offering a 10 percent off coupon to whoever calls during the game, running a “pick the correct final score and win” giveaway on your website or social media platforms, etc. Consumers already have the game on their minds, so you might as well take advantage of that and give them a deal that coincides with the event.

Socialize

There’s a pretty good reason that “70 percent of marketers plan to boost social spending in 2015.” It’s because billions of customers are on social media waiting to interact with your company. Did a big or unbelievable play just happen? Tweet about it. Bad call? Put up a poll question on Facebook.

Millions are going to be talking about the game while it is happening, and there’s no reason that they shouldn’t be talking about it all with your company. Make sure your brand and message is available to your current and future clients.

Improvise

You don’t want to sound like every other company trying to reach the Super Bowl audience. So if your plan is becoming too predictable, boring or cliché, leave room for tweaking and changing. If the pizza shop next door is offering 10 percent off, make yours 15 percent or find something different.

Tips for Cyber Monday

Posted on November 17, 2014 by - Marketing

If you have goals to increase profits, spread your brand awareness and to reach current and potential customers, then Cyber Monday should be a big deal to your company.

Cyber Monday was created as a supplement to Black Friday, one of the biggest shopping days in the U.S. that happens the day after Thanksgiving. Black Friday, on the other hand, wants shoppers to go to the actual physical locations of the stores and buy there. The way we shop, however, has changed.

Now, for every one person in the store, two are buying online. So Cyber Monday became the solution, where shoppers could still buy like crazy, but within the platform they prefer—a digital one. Here are some quick tips so you won’t miss out when December 1, 2014, rolls around.

1. Can consumers find your website?

The majority of retail shopping on Cyber Monday will be from mobile devices. That means you absolutely must have a Responsive website or a mobile-friendly platform. If you do not, click here and watch the video below.

 2. Are you offering deals?

It’s not enough to simply be online during the holiday season; you have to offer specials and deals so consumers will want to go to your site.
