The first day of fall is officially September 22, which means now is the perfect time to excite your customers with some fall promotions – and to enjoy the resulting boost in sales. Below you’ll find four easy fall promotion ideas, perfect for getting the most out of this golden season.
Battle pumpkin-spice fatigue
Fall’s the season for the now-ubiquitous pumpkin spice: a flavor showing up in everything from lattes to air freshener to beauty treatments. Plenty of people love it, so there’s nothing wrong with having a pumpkin spice themed product or item, but to really stand out, consider featuring another fall flavor (or color) in your promotion. Think apple, cranberry, or spiced pear.

October 5th is World Teachers’ Day, the perfect time to honor your customers in the teaching profession, who are likely feeling the back-to-school crunch. Already did a teacher-centric back to school promotion? Not to worry. These hard-working group of customers will still appreciate another promotion. Try one that’s a little more specific than your last: a discount on a single item or service. Bonus points if you can tie it back to teaching!
