Top 5 – Q4 Gamification Campaigns

Q4 is commonly associated with increased consumer spending, as it aligns with the holiday season. It’s a time filled with sales opportunities – not only for B2C businesses, but also for B2B enterprises.

Shopping during the holiday season is a common, albeit odd, practice. If we look at it from another perspective: your customers and business partners are more likely to make large unfinished purchases in the fourth quarter than any other time of the year.

Here are some Q4 dates worth remembering and planning for!
 
Halloween          31st      October
Singles day         11th      November
Black Friday        26th     November
Christmas Day    25th     December
New Year’s Day    1st       January

Plan ahead
