Q4 Advertising Trends: Grilling, Housing & Home Improvement

September 30, 2019

There’s nothing worse than finding the right prospect but reaching them at the wrong time – after their budget has already been spent. To help you get ahead of the curve, we’re surfacing planning period trends you should be targeting now in the grilling and housing/ home improvement categories. 

Now that Q3 has come to a close, hopefully you capitalized on the Weight Loss & Bridal opportunities we brought to your attention. In order to start Q4 and finish out the year on a strong note, we’ve created a list of brands entering peak planning mode so you can shift from reactive prospecting to proactive prospecting. 

Reach the right person at precisely the right time with Winmo’s planning and buying periods, plus verified decision-maker contact information: 

Grilling Season: 

Grilling season typically begins in the warmer spring and summer months, but is at its peak advertising in Q3, beginning with  4th of July and running through the summer and fall months. Look for grill-focused advertising to skew heavily toward males. Additionally, look for advertising to be heaviest among top football and sports-focused channels.
