The beginning of October has signaled the start of holiday preparation. Retailers and businesses have begun to plan for the holidays. If you’re a little behind schedule, don’t worry. It’s not too late to create a holiday marketing plan for your business or brand.
In the upcoming holiday months, marketing on social media is a key component to promoting your brand. Here are some ideas to help keep your posts trendy, up-to-date, and ready for the holidays.
We are delighted to have our intern Nicole joining us for the Fall. Nicole is a native of the Bronx, New York, and is currently a senior at Central Connecticut State University. She is pursuing her degree in strategic communications and public relations, and is a member of Central’s honors program.
We spoke with Nicole to learn more about her:
Can you believe that summer is winding down? These last few months have flown by! The IMC team has been busy with new clients, and holiday projects, and we even snuck in some time to enjoy the summer sun! As we head into fall, we are reflecting on the highlights that these last few months offered:
1.) B2S creative- Our designers were ready for back to school season in July! They created Facebook cover photos, social posts, signage, and a billboard. The back to school season is the busiest time of year for our retails clients, so we always try to be as helpful as possible.
Getting back into the office on Monday means there’s a whole new week of projects, new goals to achieve, emails to answer, and a much needed coffee on our desks.
Here’s a few things that we do to make Mondays the best they can be: read more…

June marked the halfway point of 2017, and we can’t believe how quickly the months have gone by. They say that “time flies when you are having fun” and that certainly applies to our office in June. We worked hard, but enjoyed helping our clients, and creating content for them. Here are some highlights of three things we did last month:
1.) Our President Kate and Account Director Crystal put their golf swing to the test at the annual Eddie Adames Memorial Golf Tournament. They helped raise money for local entrepreneur Eddie Adames, who passed away 3 ye
ars ago. This golf tournament was established to remember Eddie’s love of golf and to benefit his children’s college funds. Eddie’s restaurant, Eddie’s Sombrero, is one of our clients, and we were happy to support them at this event!
We get it. Some work days just seem like they are dragging along. Your productivity has hit an all time low, and you find your eyes glued to the clock waiting for it to reach 5:00. There are many days when our design team’s growing to-do list seems to never end, and when our office needs a pick-me up to refresh and recharge. Music is what helps us stay motivated and energized. We like to mix up the songs we listen to, and try out new genres. Here are the songs that we love that help us “face the music” and get to work:
The number 10 holds a significant place in the world. The Bill of Rights is comprised of 10 amendments to the Constitution. A telephone number including the area code is 10 digits long. A decade is defined as a combination of 10 years, and in 2017 Image Marketing Consultants celebrated this milestone, reaching its 10th anniversary in business.
President Kate Sirignano felt that owning her own company would allow her to better balance her work life. She dreamed of being a business owner from a young age, and fulfilled that dream at just 23 years old with the creation of Image Marketing Consultants. The company was born as an event-marketing agency-an industry where Kate thought her business could thrive and expand.
Last month MAY have been a little bit busy for IMC. Our team was hard at work, traveling to conferences, and creating and promoting content for our clients. We thought we would give you the inside scoop on three things we did in May:
1.) They say that what happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas. However, our President Kate, and Account Director Crystal had much to share with us when they returned from their Las Vegas business trip. Kate and Crystal traveled to the ICSC ReCon at the end of the month. They spent four days in Nevada meeting with companies from across the country. Kate felt that the conference was a valuable experience.
“It was nice to be able to meet up with our national client Centennial, network with businesses from all over the country, and spend a little bit of time enjoying Las Vegas.” she said.
We are thrilled to announce that Image Marketing Consultants was named one of the 16 Best PR Firms in the Hartford area by Expertise. 45 firms were reviewed and scored on more than 25 variables across five categories:
