The holidays are stressful. Buying gifts, hosting and attending parties, scrambling to get projects done at work, you name it! Well, it's time for you to SAVE THE DAY by offering a holiday-themed giveaway! Everyone loves free stuff! Swoop in with a fun little game and giveaway to keep your audience smiling.
Spreading joy is what the holiday season is all about!
This so fun! Here are two ideas you can use:
1. Post a holiday song lyric & ask your audience to guess which song it's from.
2. Post a picture from a holiday movie scene and ask your audience to guess which movie it's from.
The first person to comment with the correct answer is the winner!
Increase reach and engagement with an animated gif!
Animated gifs are like video in social posts, your audience is more likely to stop scrolling and watch for a while. Take advantage of that stopping power!
🔎Where to find holiday animated gifs
If you're new to posting gifs, I recommend you search for them on giphy.com. I did a search for "Christmas movies" and found this one. I was even able to download the type of file I needed (it has a "social" option. Easy!)
🎁What to give away
This doesn't have to be expensive or cut into your profits! Choose product or service samples. Or $5 or $10 gift cards. Anything to show some holiday spirit and give your audience a break from the stressful holidays.
