You may not have realised yet but this blog is seasonal content and more relevant to you right now because it’s Christmas!
Here are Engine Room’s top 3 tips for seasonal Christmas content, simple but they get results:
- Send a Christmas Email
Emailing customers and suppliers to wish them well shows that your business is thinking of them without the costs of printing and posting a Christmas card. Though for those special customers or suppliers a handwritten card or small gift is another great little touch that will set you apart from you competitors.
- Tis the season to be social
Whether on LinkedIn, Facebook or Twitter when using the most relevant social media platforms make sure your content is seasonal. This could be a new profile and header image or a series of festive tweets.
You could be running festive competitions or giveaways for your followers or simply making your content a little Christmassy, whatever you do , a little personality during the run up to Christmas will go a long way.
- Blog about the year just gone or the year ahead
This is an easy way to freshen up your website, pull together any new products, projects or feedback from the last year and collate them into a simple timeline of the year just gone. It’s also a great opportunity to hint at anything planned for the New Year as well.
