Sunny Skies and Seasonal Shifts: Creative Advertising Strategies

As the editor of this blog all about local advertising, I pay quite a lot of attention of local advertising, especially here in Pittsburgh. Today, as I’m sitting at my desk watching Pittsburgh’s infamous gloom give way to some afternoon sunshine, I find myself considering how season’s impact advertising, from mood and messaging to media placements and budgets.

Seasonal ads can highlight product offerings that align with the time of year, provide a evoke tremendous emotion. For example, nothing says the holiday season has arrived here in Pittsburgh quite like the Eat N Park Christmas tree commercial. (Admittedly, this blogger all but threw her credit card at the kind folks at Steel City when they launched a t-shirt version.)
