Crafting a holiday marketing strategy across multiple social media platforms is a great way to increase product and brand awareness, followers, engagement and holiday sales. The first step? Name your holiday campaign as a whole and create a unique hashtag around that name. By creating a simple yet memorable multi-platform hashtag to represent your holiday campaign efforts, you’ll be able to spread awareness efficiently and collectively see participant engagement. The following tips outline ideas by platform for social campaigns to help you increase holiday awareness and sales.
– Pick an official ‘holiday hashtag’ (if you haven’t already) and use it to spread the word about your brand and products during the holidays. Use it everywhere, including your website, social platforms (except Pinterest) and in-store. Make sure it’s unique and that no other brand is already using it. Retweet fan posts to boost awareness and to keep you top of mind.
– Aim to share 7-15 tweets per day. Add your new holiday hashtag to all relative tweets.
– Tweet out links to each platform where you’re sharing content, promotional deal information, exclusive first looks, etc…
~ Consider adding holiday keywords whenever possible: Black Friday, Christmas Gifts, Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, Happy Holidays, Happy New Year, Winter, etc…
~ Go off of trending hashtags when relative. For example, if ‘#XmasWishlist’ is trending, first research why it’s trending. If it’s just for users to share what they want as a gift, start tweeting out links to your shopping categories, new trending items, and articles with products that would make great gifts. Don’t forget to add your own hashtag after this trending one! Just don’t do more than 2 hashtags per tweet. (more…)
