How sharp would you say your memory is? I’d compare mine to that of a spoon. I never remember birthdays (sorry Dad), my grocery store list (I write it out, but forget to bring it with me), and I constantly forget the point I’m trying to make in a story… What were we talking about? Let’s just say, I get “distracted.” Remembering the holidays is important, especially when it comes to email marketing. Preparation, planning, and staying ahead of the game is essential for a successful campaign or sale (hence we released our Everything Holiday marketing resource site in early October). However, if you’re anything like me, a little reminder goes a long way. So, save a post-it and check out these upcoming holidays/observances you don’t want to forget to remember:
