Each Christmas, we see Christmas campaigns roll out, just like the movies with the same scene: the snow gently falling, people rushing to buy gifts, carols playing, the iconic child standing in front of an elaborate Christmas display of a shop window.
It makes you feel all warm and fuzzy, right?
So, if we’re not blessed with a Hollywood budget, how can we leverage the Christmas season to tap into the sentiment and nostalgia our audience associate with Christmas time, without adding to the noise?
