Create the habit
So the snack that you are selling is not usually purchased during the festive. Who cares! Just keep promoting this during the festive and buy space to promote them. Come up with festive packs that consumers can fancy as gifting or for own consumption. Once its a an accepted norm to consume your snack during festive season, it would soon be a habitual thing.
Come up with a recipe of your own
Most celebrations have their “must eat” list of food. Try using the traditional recipe and converting them into a modern one with your product. Eventually, they will start to adopt your recipe with your product if its easily adaptable and taste great
Push your own theme
Larger corporations and companies can launch their own 11.11 or Black Friday. If you can’t scale down to something you can do like anniversary sale or hygiene month. Be creative and stick to it yearly. Eventually, people will remember your theme and relate to it
Most time, owning a festive doesn’t happen immediately. The results will only be shown in later years and its a long term project. Hence, you need to be consistent with owning a festive and it cannot be something that should be done one year and exit the following year only to follow back in the following following year. But once you’ve succeed, consumers will start to relate to your brand and the festive all the time
