It’s the most wonderful time of the year; a time for the celebration of the holiday season.
As we deck the halls with boughs of holly and trim the tree, it’s also time to get your business showcased for the holiday season.
This is the time to make sure your social media profiles and website are ready for the festive season.
Here are some ways to dress up your website and social media for the holidays:
Decorate your website home page
Place your best holiday deals front and center on your website. A great example is from retailer J Crew who held a “5 Days of Merry. 5 Surprise Sales” recently.
Design a customized Christmas logo
Why not create a fun holiday version of your logo for the holidays? Google has been doing this for years, and not just for Christmas for every holiday or event.
Host holiday gift ideas
Tell your customers what to buy for the person who has everything. When you make gift-giving easy they buy!
Target does a great example of this right on their homepage with a gift ideas list. Listing gift ideas at different price points make it convenient. For example, Target lists gifts under $25, under $5-, and over $50.
Create festive holiday content
Find fun ways to share your content with a holiday flair. For example, All Business posted a great article on “The 12 Days of Christmas Retail.”
Spruce up your social media accounts too!
Design a special holiday Facebook Cover Image. Show customers your holiday spirit by designing a festive holiday cover image. Our eVision Media Facebook page incorporates our brand colors and logo into our Christmas banner.
Post family holiday pictures
On my personal profile, I’ve posted a picture of our cat Taz by the Christmas tree. Taz has formed min-celebrity status on Facebook. Moreover, a lot of people can relate to what it’s like having pets and hoping they don’t attack the Christmas tree.
It’s a fun image that helps us connect with our audience.
Use holiday hashtags
Make it easy for holiday enthusiasts to find you by creating holiday hashtags. Some popular ones include #diy, #stockingstuffers, #holidays, #newyears and so on.
Display holiday hours
If you plan on taking time off for the holidays let your customers know. A graphic for social media and your website is the perfect way to remind them. Look at this example from The Comedy Spot.
So don’t be a Grinch. Show your customers your holiday spirit!
Celebrate by sharing website and social media updates that you are decked out in holiday style. ‘Tis the season. Set the mood for holiday shopping and you’ll be rewarded.
