I’m starting to feel Christmassy now. With the start of December comes the festive season, with our social media channels becoming home to all things Christmas over the coming weeks.
This month is a time for joy, connection and, for small businesses, an unmissable opportunity to stand out on social media.
But how can you ensure that your brand stands out at such a frantic time of the year? This blog post contains five practical strategies to help your small business shine on social media this Christmas.
1 – Create a festive brand persona
It’s time to give your social media presence a Christmas makeover. Update your profile pictures and banners with festive themes. Inject the spirit of the season into your posts by sharing Christmas-related content.
You can add a festive sparkle to your products or have your team share their Christmas cheer. Let your brand’s personality shine through.
2 – Engage with Christmas-themed content
December is the time to be creative and playful with your content. Host a Christmas countdown, share festive tips, or create yuletide-themed polls and quizzes.
Engaging Christmas content that resonates with the season’s spirit helps attract attention and encourages sharing and interaction.
3 – Leverage user-generated content
Ask your followers to share their own festive stories or photos using your products. Create a unique hashtag for your Christmas campaign to make it easier to keep track of shared content.
User-generated content helps boost engagement and adds authenticity to your brand, showing real people enjoying what you have to offer.
4 – Run festive promotions and giveaways
Everyone loves a freebie or special offer. Use your social media to promote exclusive Christmas deals or host giveaways. This approach rewards your loyal followers and attracts new followers and potential customers.
5 – Share behind-the-scenes festive preparations
Give your audience a glimpse behind the curtain. Share photos or stories of your team preparing for Christmas, whether it’s decorating the office or packaging festive orders.
Sharing some behind-the-scenes content adds a personal touch to your brand and helps build a stronger connection with your audience.
Remember, the key to successful Christmas social media marketing is to blend festive cheer with genuine engagement. So, deck your social media halls with boughs of holly and watch your business glow this Christmas season.
