Getting ready for the holidays is a LOT of work! Not only are you getting ready for your family Christmas but you also have to get your business ready! Like we didn't have enough to do!! To help you out, I have created for you a list of 10 social media posts you should do this holiday season.
1. The Introduction
Take a moment to introduce yourself, your product/service or business to your followers and subscribers. Don't forget to share a picture of yourself!!
2. Behind the Scenes.
Showcase your life behind the highlight reel. Let your followers have a look at your office space, your home, your business, your studio - whatever it is that you do show them where you create. Be a little vulnerable.
3. Share something about your holiday prep or traditions.
Tis the season to be jolly (or super stressed and overwhelmed!) Share something relevant to the holiday season from your personal life. This could be a family tradition like baking cookies, skating on the outdoor rink, festive party/celebration, shopping for gifts, or celebrating the release of the seasonal Starbucks cup, the list is endless! Anything that shows your holidays spirit and gives your audience a peak into your personal life.
The holiday season is here! Can you believe it? I know I can’t! While the excitement builds, and you’re busy planning on a personal end, it’s important to start getting your business into holiday marketing mode as well. It can take time to organize for such a large promotion, so getting started early will make it much simpler! Here are 5 tips to get started preparing your business for the holidays.
When getting in the spirit of the holidays, its important to do your research. Look at what happened last year in your business, that of your competitors, in your industry and in other similar industries. You need to take the time to do the proper research to ensure that you have a solid holiday marketing plan and offers. Doing this research is something that many business owners don’t prioritize, however, its going to be essential to your success during the holiday season.
During the research phase, set solid goals for your holiday marketing efforts and create a simple step by step plan to reach them.
Create Your Offers
Everyone, and I mean everyone, is looking to score a deal during the holiday season. Think about the products or services you offer. Then think about what you would be looking for at this time of the year if you were in your ideal client’s shoes. Create a list of offer ideas and take some time to stew on them. Giving yourself some time by creating your offers in advance, gives you the opportunity to determine which options are the best fit for you to offer.
