Five End-of-Holiday-Season Marketing Tactics for a Profitable 2018

Marketers are in the throes of making the final act of the holiday shopping season a fruitful one. Black Friday and Cyber Monday are understandably a prime focus for holiday marketing campaigns. But the holiday spirit—and the holiday shopper—enjoys jolly, spendy moods well beyond Thanksgiving weekend and into the New Year.

The home stretch of the holiday season is a unique opportunity to retool digital strategies that carry you into January.
