How to Make the Most of Halloween Spending

The holiday shopping season begins well before Black Friday. Don’t get spooked by the Christmas creep, which can scare small business owners into rushing to start their winter holiday marketing plan.

The ultimate nightmare before Christmas for retailers is missing out on Halloween spending!

Halloween purchases have been on the rise for years. In 2019, Halloween spending reached $8.8 billion and in 2020, spending is expected to be about the same. That’s a scary good opportunity for small business owners, especially while the big guys are likely already showing commercials of snow-covered hills and melting snowmen.

If you’re still not convinced, scroll down to see the Halloween spending infographic, provided by Statista, to see how much spending is really going around.
