Christmas is rapidly approaching so get in fast! Due to deadlines we’ve had to move some of the auctions forward over Christmas and New Year – set up your airtime now to avoid missing out.

Brands that might like to have a greater presence in the Xmas & New Year period can really come up trumps on Bid4Spots over the silly season. That means more share of voice, for less investment!

Winter is already in full force, so Cold & Flu medications, heating suppliers and any winter warmer ideas will benefit from extra presence during this time.

Holiday related products or services such as cameras, travel vaccinations and general Xmas supplies will do well in auctions for the last two weeks of December. Xmas is also the season for giving, so Charities can make every penny go even further by using Bid4Spots in the Xmas campaigns.

New Year activity should be finalised ASAP. Weight loss and detox products, gym memberships and January sales will benefit from organizing auctions for January NOW.
