New Product Pitch
Large retailers like Target are taking submissions for December launches for sidecaps and minis. Generally, Target sources products six months in advance and promotional opportunities three months in advance. So in June, they are reviewing Q3 promotions and advertising.
You should have your holiday marketing pitches ready for most of your retailers, including Black Friday, Cyber Monday, Friendsgiving offers and special kits. For retailers that do a Halloween promotion, this is a good time to pitch Halloween-friendly products.
