Ways to Market Your Business for Memorial Day Weekend

For many of us, Memorial Day weekend is thought to be the unofficial start to summer. Even though having a BBQ or relaxing on a beach is a great idea, it’s also a smart move to keep your business up and running for many potential customers who are out and about that weekend.

Support the Troops

Memorial Day is an important holiday for all Americans. As a business owner, extend your appreciation by offering discounts to Veterans and active serving members. If you have a storefront, showcase American flags in support of the troops. Celebrate by wearing red, white, and blue or featuring a special patriotic dessert on your restaurant’s menu.

Prepare for Summer Business & Marketing

We all know that Memorial Day is the unofficial start of summer. Get ahead of the game and plan out your summer marketing activities in advance. If your business is seasonal, be prepared for an increase in clientele. Update your website with any new company information including new items, services, or menu options.

Social Media

Post a thank you to your Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat, etc. and use engaging hashtags like #MemorialDay and #HonorOurTroops. Create your own fun holiday hashtags and tag any local Veterans or active duty members you know. Make sure to invite your employees and customers to like and share your post!

Memorial Day Weekend Discounts

This is a huge shopping weekend for customers so offer discounts and lower rates on items. Present a special welcome back coupon to returning tourists and vacationers. Invite locals to stop by if they are looking for weekend deals. Be sure to send out an email blast and include the information on your social media page to let customers know you are open for business.

Give Back to the Community

Take part in any local activities or special events going on. This is a great way to meet new people and introduce yourself and your business. Word of mouth is a great way to promote your business to potential customers.
