Independance Day, or, Fourth of July, celebrates the adoption of the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776. With over 318 million people who call America ‘home’, you better believe it’s a day of celebration.
For most people, the Fourth of July is a time to enjoy warmer weather with family and friends, fill up on hotdogs and backyard bbq recipes, and enjoy the sparkle and wonder that comes with a fireworks show. It’s about celebration, family, and that warm, fuzzy feeling we get when we know we’re home.
With summer months in full swing, consumers are ready and willing to shell out some money to celebrate this patriotic holiday. On average, Americans will spend about $300 per person on food, decoration, etc. And get this: shoppers will spend over $600 million on Fourth of July fireworks alone! Check out this infographic by oBizMedia about consumer spending for this nation-wide holiday:
Now that you know consumers are ready and willing to shell out the big bucks for their Independance Day festivities, ask yourselves: How can your company reach and influence these consumers to choose your brand? The answer: By partnering with real people who each have their own sphere of influence and can promote your product in new, creative ways. Studies have shown that 92% of people trust recommendations from individuals (even if they don’t know them) over brands. That’s why our community of influencers is so successful in bridging the gap between brand and consumer: they are trusted. See for yourself:
