What Your Brand Needs BEFORE More Content

I get the honor of chatting with Overit clients before they become Overit clients.

Marketing Magic: Why #WestJetChristmas Works

“How can we make our brand relevant during the holiday season?” Did you ask your marketing team that a few months ago? You might have chosen a sales-driven campaign, such as the commercials we frequently see on TV promoting products and discounts, a brand-awareness campaign that ties in a holiday theme, or the kind of campaign that just wants to say “Happy Holidays” to the company or organization’s existing, supportive and loyal community.
