By Lauren Hall
2 minute read

Podcast Episode 4-5 Header ImageCapitalizing on a holiday like Valentine’s Day doesn’t mean you have to spend months working on a campaign (although you can).

To prove it, we brought marketing leaders from MeUndies and VINEBOX on the podcast for twice the fun.

While MeUndies started prepping before Thanksgiving, VINEBOX came up with their concept and launched in less than a month.

Whether you have weeks or months, there’s something you can take away from these episodes for your next holiday campaign. And guess what – it doesn’t have to be a year from now.

You can tune in above👆 on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Stitcher, or anywhere you get your podcasts.

In the episode with MeUndies, you'll learn:

  • The role of storytelling in their brand strategy.
  • How they tapped into their customers’ view of Valentine’s Day.
  • How their strategy applies to other holidays.
  • Their timeline for the whole campaign.

What to listen for:

  • [3:16] Storytelling and how a PR background helps with that.
  • [6:50] How they challenge the status quo with their Valentine’s Day campaign.
  • [11:34] How does it all start? 
  • [19:53] Advice for any budget.
