The last quarter of the year can be hectic for business. You are in the midst of holiday campaigns, rushing to meet year-end goals, and trying to maximize sales when customers are primed to buy.
The holiday season offers brands a great opportunity to capitalize on the sale of their products and services. But nonstop work and with no help will lead to burnout fast.
But what if your year-end approach could result in success for your businesses and peace of mind for you? It’s possible with the right tools and a bit of planning!
We compiled some of our trusted and most used resources to help you end on a high note and keep your mental health in check.
6 Resources your business needs to end the year strong
1. Opt for Low-Stress Seasonal Branding
If you are struggling with your seasonal campaigns or branding strategy, we created an entire blog devoted to de-stressing the holidays. Start here if you are feeling like your year-end campaigns need some help or are causing you unnecessary stress.
Remember, you don’t have unlimited resources. If you need help getting honest about your capacity and maximizing what your brand can offer, this resource is a huge help.
There is so much going on for business in the last quarter of the year, organization and project management is key. With Infinity you can easily collaborate with your team, clients, and contractors to store everything in one place and organize projects the way you want. And we love how affordable it is.
Another powerhouse tool for planning and collaboration. Miro is a visual platform where you can collaborate, strategize, plan, and create together. From brand strategy to content planning, make your end-of-the-year goals more visual with Miro.
Time is short in the last few months of the year, so don’t waste it in unproductive meetings! We’ve cut down on wasted time and tripled our productivity with Loom. You can use it for quick tutorials, project recaps, and project collaboration. Plus, people can respond with a video within your videos.
5. Adobe Express
We know we talk about Adobe Express a lot, but that is because it is so valuable for our team and our clients! It is the BEST all-in-one editor that enables anyone to easily create stunning content. From generative AI tools from Adobe Firefly, videos, marketing, social content, cutouts, PDF edits, and animations — the possibilities are endless.
When planning your content, use it to create custom holiday templates or pull from some of Adobe’s amazing free templates.
Everyone is talking about AI lately but for good reason! It is a game-changer for small businesses with limited resources and team members. We used Jasper.AI years before ChatGPT came out. When writing isn’t coming easily or you want a solid place to start, Jasper.AI is a powerful tool. As you use it more, it learns your brand voice and style of writing. It’s an incredible resource!
