Easter marketing is tied to the Christian holiday that takes place annually in March or April. The spring holiday is frequently commemorated with an Easter egg hunt, candy-filled baskets, and chocolate bunnies, providing ample opportunity for creative Easter marketing campaigns, giveaways, or sales. Easter holiday advertising campaigns should start in late winter, soon after Valentine’s Day, since the Easter season begins with Lent in February or March, and run through the holiday.

It’s the season for Easter egg hunts, so consider what types of kid-friendly products or campaigns you could create, for example, featuring the Easter Bunny. There are also many opportunities for businesses and brands to boost their campaigns for chocolate eggs and Easter-themed candy, and it’s a great way to offer related discounts or giveaways for snacks and recipes too.

Case Study

Cadbury Creme Eggs are some of the best-known Easter candy, and in order to appeal to specific audiences, they launched a streaming channel. The brand also integrated Amazon DSP with video and display ads to encourage customer engagement with their two short films from the campaign.

Case Study

In order to drive sales of their marker products on and create an Easter promotion, Sharpie® produced a campaign that provided an experiential marketing Easter egg hunt for shoppers. The eggs were hidden on the product detail pages and within the Sharpie Store for winners to find, which the brand promoted on social media.



Holidays are an ideal time to promote sweets, and Mars was able to increase consideration, conversion, and brand love for M&M’S in their “Movie Night” campaign. It ran through Halloween and the holiday season, but can serve as inspiration for campaigns that celebrate Easter.



A general recommendation for holiday advertising is to consider advertising with Sponsored Products, since big events such as Prime Day can lead to an increase in shoppers. For example, you could create tactics for advertising products popular during a given event, such as chocolate in the lead-up to Easter.
