Thanksgiving is right around the corner. The leaves are falling and the nights are getting colder and colder.

It’s the perfect time to get a hot cup of cocoa, some big wooly socks, and run a Fall marketing campaign.

Step 1: Brainstorm your Fall Campaign

The first thing you need to do is determine what kind of Fall marketing campaign you want to run – a simple sale, a photo contest, a giveaway, a discount, or whatever your creative mind can come up with.

Step 2: Create a Fall Campaign Page

Once you know what Fall campaign you’re going to run, you need to create a specific page within your website which is focused on that campaign.

Having a specific page for your campaign will result in better conversion rates (because your traffic is more focused on a single goal) make it easier to run ads, and make it easier for you to track the success of your campaign.

The important parts of this Fall marketing campaign:

  • The dollar value of the promotion, front and center
  • The countdown timer, to create urgency in your campaign page visitors
  • “Enter for a change to win” – legally, this is important. You can’t, technically, use “enter to win” in your contest copy
