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 Father’s 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. (source)

Including an image with your post is the easiest way to DOUBLE engagement and it’s why the Social Content App, our industry-leading mobile app, is FULL of eye-catching images.

Holiday Hashtags for Social Media

When celebrating holidays on social media, it’s important to include the relevant hashtag(s) for that holiday in your post.

Hashtags will increase the reach of your post, exposing your business to a larger audience.

To learn why and how to use hashtags on social media read: 210 Daily Hashtags for Social Media.

Hashtags are such an essential piece to your success on social media that I’ve done the research for you.

Most of the holidays listed below include a hashtag to use on social media. 

However, for best results, you’ll want to use 3 – 5 hashtags relevant to that holiday in your post. 

If you’re pressed for time, the Social Content App does the hashtag research for you and provides 3 popular and relevant hashtags for all major holidays. 

Now that you know those helpful tips let’s jump into the list of Holidays.

Simple Hack for Social Media Content
