The holiday season and the end of yet another action-packed year is just around the bend. As we gear up for the festivities and wrap up 2017 with some holiday cheer (and likely frantic gift shopping), marketers of all stripes are also busy putting together end-of-year materials for both themselves and their clients.
These often include festive thank you cards to clients, an annual review presentation to reflect on the year that’s just passed, a proactive marketing plan for 2018, and a handful of holiday event posters and flyers.
Which is why we decided to put together this one stop shop list made up of holiday-themed marketing visuals ideas. This includes new Piktochart templates – all fresh off the design press.
1. Year-End Review Presentation
The weeks leading up to your holiday break are for finishing your projects and also a period of review. This helps with planning and strategizing for the year ahead, and also provides the ability to do an audit of all the initiatives and experiments you’ve run. This professional presentation template is particularly a good home for all the data crunching that is required for a good year-end review presentation.
2. Marketing plan for 2018 presentation
Planning for the year ahead before the holidays means you’ll emerge in the new year both refreshed and prepared. And a well-prepared marketing team is one that will be sharp and ready to execute straight out of the gate. This marketing plan presentation template includes a SWOT analysis, as well as an opportunity to list your target audience and their pain points.
3. Yearly review and reflections presentation
Unlike the first template on this list, which is suited for a more data-heavy summary – this one is for those that would like to ponder and write more on their end of year reflections. Reflecting on the year that’s just passed is useful because it helps with planning for the year ahead, and also to perform a bit of an autopsy on the experiments that went awry.
4. Play to win canvas presentation
A play-to-win strategy canvas helps teams of all stripes lay out their plans for the year, solidify their company’s mission statement, figure out who their target users and customers are, and also map out the action plan and resources required to reach their goals.The canvas also helps with prioritizing what’s the most important and leaves what has historically not worked behind. It’s critical in nailing down a concrete path to success.
5. Holiday thank you cards for clients
Whole-hearted appreciation for those that have supported you this past year, isn’t that what the holidays are all about? Especially when it comes to your clients, the people that continue buying into your business. We figure you’ll be sending a handful of these out, which is why we’ve prepared three templates to suit a variety of clients and moods.
6. Holiday edition of a newsletter infographic
At Piktochart, we send out an email recap to the team every month – keeping our entire team thoroughly updated on new projects, product launches, and what’s happening in the content and social media arenas. This infographic template will help your marketing team get their updates in the most festive way possible.
7. Year-end promotional flyer
This one goes out to small business owners that need help in promoting their end of season discounts. The month of December is especially important to businesses selling holiday gifts, and to the ones trying to offload seasonal items post-Christmas day – which is why promo poster templates like this one can be very handy.
8. Holiday event poster
While not everyone loves eggnog, everyone is still a fan of the holiday party – which often includes festive fun, delicious hor d’oeuvres and networking opportunities. With many going on vacation this time of year though, these holiday parties need to be promoted well in advance – and this template will help get that done effortlessly.
9. Holiday Bonus Templates
Before you go, we’ve got a few more holiday-themed templates for you that might just tickle your fancy!
We hope these templates lent a hand in making your holiday-themed marketing efforts a little less stressful, and a lot more visual.
Happy holidays from Piktochart!
