Is your company excited about the holidays? Does that show on your social media?
December is already here, that means people are gearing up for the holiday season. This season is a great opportunity to adopt new social media tactics – with a holiday twist. People are already spending time on social media sites, and are getting excited about the holidays. So why not get people excited about the holidays and involved in your company at the same time?
Give your followers another reason to engage with your company this holiday season.
- Start a Facebook Holiday themed promotion. There are several ways to do this. Consider a limited-time-only discount, supporting a charity, or giving a gift back to loyal customers. All of these promotions are ways to add a little something extra to your company’s Facebook effort.
- Promote a holiday-themed hashtag on Instagram. Encourage followers to upload holiday pictures using the hashtag, or pictures that are relevant to your brand. Make it a contest and award the contestant with the most “Likes” a holiday gift. Make it easy for fans to enter the contest by just simply using the hashtag. Once a winner is selected, contact them to claim their prize through their social media account.
- Start a New Years countdown, asking users to share their resolutions. Try to think of ways your business could be part of a New Years Resolution.
- Host a gift giveaway that takes place between Christmas and New Years…this is sure to keep your fans in the holiday spirit!
- Use Twitter to show your holiday enthusiasm and excitement! Be sure to tweet any other contests or giveaways you have started on your other social media accounts!
The holidays are about giving back, so do something different and thoughtful for your fan base – thank them for supporting your business all year. Even something small, like tweeting out holiday jokes, can put a smile on a customers face! The holiday season is known for love, happiness, and positive thoughts for the New Year – make sure to be a part of that when it comes to social media.
