Social Media Marketing Tips for the Winter Break and Winter Holiday
Don’t wait until November to have your holiday planned out. You need to start thinking about this way before Black Friday. This way you’re not running around like a chicken without a head.
Don’t expect Social Media to do all your selling for you. Begin to plan out newsletters, mailers, blogs, and ads as well as social media posts. An all-encompassing strategy has a much better chance to get you the results you want. Check out this article for a list of ideas on how to promote your social media offline.
Think about the offers you can provide and when you can provide them. You can kick-start your holiday selling by offering super discounts now. Black Friday before Black Friday.
Create some add-on goodies. For example, each time a customer shops with you before the holiday season and shares their purchase to social media, they earn points towards a super special free item (think of this like the free Turkey supermarkets give over the holidays).
Host an event to kick off the season. Maybe an Instagram Fan Only wine tasting at your restaurant. Or a free upgrade on a manicure to a customer who posts about it to their Instagram account. Keep in mind it’s all about thinking outside the box…besides, when they come in for that mani, they’ll probably get a pedicure as well.
These are just a few ideas to get you started. Happy Holidays.
