Just as retailers plan and set out attractive displays to take advantage of seasonal spending, you need to keep seasonal interests in mind for your online marketing. Granted, you reach a worldwide audience, so you don’t need to be too specific. But there are certain “seasons” for buying that are universal.
New Year’s – The start of the year causes people to make those pesky New Year’s resolutions. They promise to lose weight, start exercising, clean out clutter in home and office, establish better time management skills and begin regular savings programs.
The search engines are buzzing with these keyword topics the week before January and throughout the month. You need to be ready with information products to turn those resolutions into workable strategies. But do it fast, because resolutions don’t last much past February.
Spring – When tiny flowers and green leaves peek out from winter weary branches, there’s a sense of renewal. People start to think about planting a garden, fixing up the patio or landscape and beginning outdoor sports. Package information products on early gardening and join affiliate programs that ship flowers and buds.
Summer – This is prime family vacation time – parents looking for activities for children who are out of school and outdoor entertainment. You don’t have to compete with the big travel sites. What you have to offer is ideas for summer fun – family friendly resorts, how to choose a summer camp and creating lush outdoor spaces on a budget.
Back to School – At least a month before school starts, parents are shopping for school clothes, supplies and electronics. Present reviews that are informative and connected to affiliate programs for back to school products. Don’t forget the homeschool families and add products for them, too.
Fall, Harvest, Thanksgiving – The change of seasons brings last camping opportunities, team sports, school events and family travel for the traditional Thanksgiving holiday. Put a new twist on information products, such as how to prepare a vegan feast or helping your child cross-train for multiple sports participation.
Winter, Christmas – The colder weather brings winter sports, family gatherings, shopping and decorating for holidays in December. Prepare a list of less crowded, budget friendly winter sports vacations, and how to save time shopping online and decorating using what you already have at home. It’s also leading into the year-end time of reflection when people think about what they enjoyed and what they want to change next year.
As you make seasonal marketing plans, remember that the seasons arrive at different times on each side of the equator. So if you’re marketing outside of the United States, what you consider spring may be fall elsewhere.
Winter break can be prime ski resort time in Aspen, Colorado and sun-bathing on the beach in Sydney, Australia. The good news is that you can use “spring” for both sides of the equator with different timing and slight tweaks of the information.
Weddings are a beautiful time. Most women consider weddings to be the most important moment of their lives. Just like with everything else, it’s important to have those moments captured. Utah Wedding Photography will make that happen. Of course, there’s a lot to consider when having a photographer at your wedding. With seasonal photography, there are a lot of elements to consider such as what time of the day, outdoors or indoors, and location. We’ll discuss these elements further.
Winter weddings are becoming more popular than you think. They seem to be more intimate and special. And with Utah Bridal Photography, it’s that possible! During the harsh winters, there are going to be delays. There could be a storm, the bridal party could be late, or something else could happen. Maybe the photographer might show up late! There are a lot of factors to consider. But factors aside, the bride and groom can decide whether they want to be photographed indoors or outdoors. It’s much easier to photograph indoors, but outdoors may appeal to some people.
If you’re going to have your wedding photos taken outside, you will have to consider the place and lighting. There might be some problems including glaring from the snow, weather conditions, and other elements that may impede the photos. You don’t want to be in too much of a sunny or shaded spot. This will alter the photos dramatically. A gazebo would be a great benefit to taking wedding photos, although it may cause shading. But don’t worry; the photographer will give you an idea of what the best location would be to take your photos.
Springtime wedding photos can be just as beautiful. Utah Wedding Photography has also found this to be an easier time to take your photos. There are not as many lighting and weather elements to consider. The sun is not as bright as it is in the winter and summer. Of course, there may be a day where it rains! It’s not just bad luck for the wedding, but for the wedding photography as well. The bridal party would hate having to stand out in the rain!
Just like with spring, the fall can be a great time to take pictures. Imagine your bridal photographs in the autumn with the leaves falling, the sun glistening, and the breeze blowing. Wouldn’t that be a beautiful photo, or what? It would even be more beautiful with Utah Bridal Photography. They will capture the essence of fall with the bridal party.
As stated before, it can be very tricky to photograph in the winter. A lot more elements can happen, even with the weather. The sun can sometimes be too bright to take bridal photos. This can be a big impediment, especially when the party wants to photograph outside. And why wouldn’t you? It’s the most beautiful time of the year. Summer weddings are a close second to winter weddings. You may consider having your wedding photos down in the morning, midday, or evening. Your photographer will also give you an idea of what’s the best location for your photos. Depending on where you live, there are freak elements in the summer such as thunderstorms, hurricanes, or other natural occurrences. It’s important for everyone to be safe during such extreme elements. The best case is to seek shelter, rather than worrying about your wedding photos!
Now you have a better idea of seasonal photography. This will help you in figuring out what time of the year you want to have your winter. Elements aside, do you still want it in the winter or summer? Or would you prefer having it in the spring and fall? These are safer bets. But it’s all up to you and what kind of wedding you want. Utah Wedding Photography will be sure to make that happen for you.
One last tip is to always listen to the photographer! After all, they are the experts. They understand how lighting, settings, and weather can affect a picture. So never try to argue with them. They are there to do their job and to capture your special moments. You wouldn’t want that to be ruined.
Seasonal photography can be challenging, but with a little knowledge it can be rewarding as well. And with Utah Bridal Photography, you will get a lot out of your wedding photos!
