Look to the Past

People love nostalgia because it reminds them of past times in which their lives were simpler, younger, and more carefree. Recreating marketing promotions from the past can often inject new excitement into your old, established business.

It’s nothing new. Major corporations like Ford, Coca-Cola, and The Walt Disney Company have been going into the vault and bringing out old marketing campaigns, brushing them off, refurbishing them, and using them to attract an entirely new generation of customers.

Established campaigns can also help solidify loyalty bonds with long-term customers by reinforcing the trust relationship your business has shared with them for years or even decades.

Digging into your past marketing campaigns can bring up enjoyable memories and while sparking new ideas for turning the old into the new.
