Get this: Halloween isn't all about candy fun and trick-and-treats, its an excellent time of the year to host something spooky and throw a promotion. Think of ways you can spice up your activities and make this Halloween frightfully fun for your customers.
Sponsor spooky activities
For Halloween fans, there is nothing better than scary haunted houses, costumes and corn mazes. You can host a costume competition where guests are encouraged to put their best halloweeny look and the one with the most likes on social media could be the winner? You could also partner with local farms to host a corn maze or hire a bar to host a simple murder mystery dinner. It would not only make the tour memorable for the guests but would also attract attention of potential customers on social media
Tell a ghostly tale
This is probably the most common thing activity operators do for any upcoming holiday and it really helps! Avoid making any major changes to your storefront or your website but a simple spooky greet on the header does the trick. Some choose to dress up and get out on the streets to hand out Halloween-themed flyer on their activities. You could also hand out free candies to sweeten the event.
Offer promotional deals
Don't forget to offer discounted rates and promo codes to those who book your activities on October 31st or even throughout the month. Make sure you keep your customers aware weeks in advance of the upcoming deals.
There are hundreds of ideas to promote your activity business this Halloween! We hope this guide gives you a head start in making the most out of this holiday season and improve your brand recognition among tourists.
