As the year draws to an end, many marketing departments and marketers in particular, are feeling the year end crunch. Marketing budgets are scrutinized and plans are reviewed for the coming year. While saving money is always a good thing, not capitalizing on your full budget may mean losing it for the coming year.
Don’t lose it, maximize it!
How can you fully maximize your budget for the coming year while still showing ROI? Here are a few ways to hit a home run and head into 2017 on the tails of a successful campaign.

Order advertising flags for next year
Some promotions happen on an annual basis, others, like grand openings, happen more frequently. Why wait to place your order for flags? Order them now, so they are ready for when you need them. We can store them for your team and send them out as needed.
Make your windows festive
Simply promoting ‘Happy Holidays’ or ‘Merry Christmas’ in your marketing materials is good, but take it a step further and make it amazing by changing out your windows graphics to match the holiday season. All too often window graphics are the last thing to get a fresh new look. Show your festive side with a complete re-design for an attention grabbing display.
Try something new
If you’ve never used cloudbusters before or never had an advertising balloon up at your location, now is the time to try it out. Those advertising flags are working well for you, but what about adding something new into the mix. A custom inflatable might be just the thing your location needs to ring in 2017 with fanfare.
Spend it on your team
Don’t forget about your team! Marketing teams are constantly working, regardless of if they are actually at work or not. This is the perfect time to treat your devoted team to something special. Even add in a banner to show your appreciation.
While it’s almost time to close the book on 2016, your marketing budget is never out of mind. That’s why running campaigns that show instant ROI are the best way to maximize your year end marketing budget. Don’t wait, take advantage of these last months and kick off 2017 with some wins.
