Why Holidays Make Great Social Media Posts
Back in my corporate marketing days, when I managed the social media channels for a $150 million business, I rejoiced when a holiday came around.
Holiday posts were easy to create and they always received more “likes” than any other post.
Not many people will engage with a post about a company news release or an industry article, but many who see a post wishing everyone a Happy World Kindness Day will give it a “like.”
For a business owner or marketer, holiday posts not only increase your social media engagement, but they’re also easy posts to create that fill your followers with positive emotions.
When sharing a holiday post, always include an image or video with your status update, no matter what platform you’re using.
That’s because posts with an image get 2.3 times more engagement than posts without an image. (
) Also, tack on a holiday-themed hashtag to make it easy for people to find your content, and use location tagging if you have a physical storefront. source
Including an image with your post is the easiest way to DOUBLE engagement and it’s why the
Social Media Content Club, our industry-leading social media software, is FULL of eye-catching images.
