Fun video appeals to shoppers for dad gifts and cards

Here is a video I created for newsXpress members a few weeks ago. I wanted too create something pitching to those who buy for dads but I did not want it to be about Father’s Day. This way it can be used through the year. The video was more popular with people under 50 years of age with an interest skew toward girls over boys.

While promoting Father’s Day is something we are doing, promoting being a destination for cards and gifts for dads all year round is more important to me. I am committed to filling the troughs between the peaks with good revenue and we can do this by attracting shoppers in fun and non-traditional ways, like this video.

Note: I share less than 5% of the marketing I am engaged with at newsXpress here on this blog. I mention that for any trolls readying a negative comment. I don’t care if you like the video or not. What I care about is that newsagents, all newsagents under any banner, engage creatively and regularly to attract new shoppers to their businesses.
