Did you know that during the holidays, 44% of consumers purchase gifts from brands they’re loyal to? It’s important to go beyond the typical holiday promotions to capture the attention of shoppers and store associates, but it’s even more imperative to develop true relationships with your target audience and ensure a high level of brand loyalty even after the holiday buzz dies down.

As you plan your retail activation strategy for 2016, think about growing your brand naturally among shoppers and store associates. No artificial marketing boosts.
