Top 100 Marketing Ideas in December

From Nostalgic Storytelling Ads to Sultry Tropical Campaigns

— December 27, 2014 — Social Good
The top December 2014 marketing ideas include many charity-related campaigning and early advertising for the upcoming holidays. November, more commonly known as 'Movember' these days, inspires clever commercials and quirky products that aim to spread awareness of men's health issues.

Some of the standout 'Movember' marketing initiatives include the testicular cancer commercial by DentsuBos that uses guinea pigs to remind men to have their testes checked and the BBDO Toronto ad that uses cheesy romance to encourage men to "become a hero" by growing a mustache for the month.

On point early holiday campaigns include the pop-up shop by Walmart that lets children test their toys before writing in a request to Santa and the social scanning campaign by Tesco.

For more examples of how brands find inspiration from the top December 2014 marketing ideas, visit Trend Hunter's 2014 Marketing Trend Report.
