by Extreme John on October 28, 2011

It’s time for the “Friday Free-for-All” #FridayFreeforAll series of posts, my way for all of the small business owners and entrepreneurs that read my blog throughout the week to come together and share tips and opinions on an aspect of the small business world. This week I want to know about how you incorporate Halloween in to your small business!

Do You Celebrate Halloween In Your Small Business?

Celebrating Halloween in Your Small Business

With Halloween coming up we are having an awesome time at my indoor tanning business putting up some crazy Halloween decor! I love Halloween in my salons because it’s not only a great opportunity to run some holiday related promotions but it’s also a great way to encourage my clients to have a little fun and interact with my cast of team members! This year we went sort of crazy with the cobwebs, skeletons and even some bloody fingers hanging from the ceiling! Take a look and see for yourself!

Halloween has slowly transformed from being a scary holiday with lots of decorations to a fun continuation of April Fool’s Day. An elaborately well-planned prank always makes for a great Halloween. Happy Halloween!

Hi John, I love how you’re always making the most out of the holidays and your business. I don’t have a store front but I’ve managed to get a nice Halloween image up for our banner. I still remember your 4th of July marketing campaign it as awesome! I think your store front looks great nice work bro!

Hi EJ
As I’m writing this I’m dressed up as a witch, we’re listening to a monster-related-mix (he did the monster mash etc) on the office iplayer and we’re soon to stop for a large Hallowe’en lunch slash party – so yes, you could say we celebrate Hallowe’en!

Either that – or we just find ways not to do any work!

It’s a pity but we decided not to celebrate Halloween this year at work, so it was just an ordinary day. BUT… of course we celebrate it at home)) This is as always very interesting and exciting!

Hi John,
I love the decorations and I think client do too! We dress up and actually go to our clients and ‘treat’ them with candy and other goodies. We wear our costumes all day too. What fun and what a great way to create customer relations. Hope you have a blast for Halloween!

Hi John, I wanted to try a Halloween theme for one of my blogs. Later, I decided not to as I did not plan for it. I must think of implementing such a theme a few days before Christmas.

You could always just add a simple icon representing the holiday next to your logo instead of changing your whole theme :)

Having some sort of a do-it-yourself daily deal is a great idea. Not only that it attracts new customers, it also takes care of repeat customers.I feel that it is a great idea to bring down the marketing costs. I would certainly go ahead with this idea of creating own daily deal and share it with my friends too.
