Lots to learn, so let’s get going!

Why use holiday marketing?

If you’ve ever struggled with what to post on social media, these holidays will inspire popular posts!

Few people will “like” a post about your product or blog post, but nearly everyone who sees a post saying Happy New Year will give it a “like.”

With a cool graphic, they might even share it!

Due to social media algorithms, this engagement is crucial to your social media success. Posts that don’t get immediate engagement are not shown to many of your followers on virtually every social platform. The algorithms think they’re boring.

Don’t be boring!

Not only are holiday posts successful, but they make it easy for your followers to associate positive feelings with your business.

So let’s have some fun while we make your followers smile!

Celebrate your followers with social media holidays!
