8 ways to make the most of social media this Christmas


Christmas twitterThe festive season is upon us and it’s a perfect opportunity to engage with your target market! We’ve come up with some great ideas to spread the Christmas love this season…

Hold a Christmas competition – treat your followers and fans to a present this season, whilst also treating yourself to increased Likes and followers! Choose a worthwhile gift and hold a ‘Like and share’ or ‘RT and follow’ competition.

Upload a seasonal cover and background  photo – get in the Christmas mood and show your fans and followers you never do anything half-hearted with a bespoke winter wonderland image! It’s not too hard to add some snow and Santa hats to your logo – we can help!

Set up a Facebook poll and engage people – ask your fans ‘What’s your favourite thing about Christmas?’. It will be interesting to find out who prefers ‘Opening presents’ than ‘Giving presents’!

Upload Christmas songs – don’t be a Scrooge, share some of your favourite festive tunes with your fans and followers – we bet they’ll love them!

Countdown the 12 days of Christmas – celebrate the lead up to the big day by doing something different on the 12 days of Christmas and keep your fans and followers updated. For example, if you’re a restaurant, you could celebrate by having 12 different dishes for each day – E.g. ‘On the first day of Christmas our restaurant’s giving to you a traditional turkey taster!’.

Support a charity and urge your fans and followers to as well! Whether you’re donating gifts to the unfortunate this Christmas, or fundraising for those in need through singing carols, let your followers and fans know and ask them to support you!

Bring the office celebrations to your social media accounts – upload photos of your festive frolics and let your fans and followers get to know you and your team members a little bit more (but not too much!)!

And last, but definitely not least, don’t forget to wish your followers and fans a Very Merry Christmas on the day itself!

If you’d like help spreading the festive love this Christmas, give us a call on 01325 486666 or email charlotte@harveyandhugo.com – it would be our pleasure!
