09 Dec Failed Christmas Promotions
by Bryan Russo
This time of year, businesses will do anything to get holiday shoppers in the front door.
Accordingly, they want to show the masses that they have a general malaise of holiday cheer and a moral sense of tradition, all while encouraging the patrons to open their wallet while the kids ask the rent-a-santa for toys that are far beyond the elves magical craftsmanship as they vigorously snap photos for future “fireplace art.”
However, some holiday promotions just don’t and will never work.
