Q3 Advertising Trends: Weight Loss and Bridal

July 3, 2019

There’s nothing worse than finding the right prospect but reaching them after their budget has already been allocated. To help you stay ahead of spending curves, Winmo tracks advertiser planning periods-ensuring you’re reaching out to the key decision-makers at precisely the right time. 

By focusing on opportunities with brands entering peak planning mode, you can shift from reactive prospecting to proactive prospecting. Planning periods typically occur two to three quarters before ads begin running, and in this post, we’re bringing you specific brands with opportunities for you to pursue now. 

Now that Q2 has come to a close, hopefully you capitalized on the Tax & Wave Season opportunities we brought to your attention. In order to start Q3 on a strong note, we’ve created a list of brands planning in Q3 that you should be prospecting right now in the weight loss and bridal industries, plus verified decision-maker contact information: 

Weight Loss Season: 

Weight loss season peaks in Q1 and lasts until Q3. Advertisers within this space also begin planning in Q3, so those seeking revenue in the health and wellness categories are encouraged to reach out to decision-makers as soon as possible. Q1 is historically the highest ad period for weight loss, as people begin the New Year with fitness resolutions. Those with pitches ready prior to this period will have the advantage in securing revenue. Focus pitches on high ROI engagement strategies tied to healthy and active millennials.
