Strategy Meets Santa

By 2013 Marketers have tried it all, including the Naughty or nice barometers and quizzes assessing your social profiles.
As communication and technology evolve, there are more creative and sophisticated ways to capitalize on the holiday period. Many consumers feel the message or spirit of season is lost in content creation and consumption, or mass consumerism.
