holidaysIt’s the biggest shopping season of the year, and while you are busy getting your physical storefront ready, don’t neglect your online campaigns.

With a little effort and some creativity, you can give back to your customers and let them get to know you better as a business this Christmas. Set yourself apart from your competition and interact and share with your customers with these easy and fun ideas from Corporate Graphics!

Share Your Story

The holidays are a perfect time to connect with your audience on a deeper, more personal level and let them get to know you better. Everyone loves a good story, especially during the holidays. Share your company’s origins or highlight employees. Show how far you have come as a business and your vision for the future. Include pictures and even videos. Behind the scene blogs or videos are also fun ways to let your customers see a different side of the business. Another idea is to share charity work you have been involved in this past year. Encourage your audience to take part in giving back as well by including links that make it easy to donate. After all, the holidays are the season of giving!

Post Recipes or Craft Ideas

Why not share a favorite recipe or DIY? Consider posting a few of your and your employees' favorite holiday recipes or entertaining tips. Include some of your favorite holiday traditions for a nice personal touch. DIY gift ideas are also a fun idea, and are easier than you think. Be creative and remember to have fun. Hot chocolate or cookie mixes in a jar and personalized photo gifts are just a few ideas to get you started. Fun and unique gift wrapping ideas are also great ideas. Encourage your followers to participate as well and share their favorite DIYs and recipes.

Offer Exclusive Coupons & Sales

Offering exclusive coupon codes and flash sales to your most dedicated customers are a great way to encourage sales and give back to your customers at the same time. Consider hosting a Facebook event or sending out blast emails. Be creative. For example, consider offering a Twelve Days of Christmas sale, where a different product is discounted each day, or hosting a special after hours event. The possibilities are endless. Don't be afraid to think outside of the box!

Hold Contests & Giveaways

It’s the season of giving after all, so why not sprinkle some fun giveaways into your posts? Giveaways and contests are great way to gain followers and give back to your customers. From gifts cards to your besting selling products or gift baskets, giveaways are great away to show your audience they are appreciated and to maybe get them to try out products they might not have necessarily gravitated towards on their own. Consider including other small businesses as well, and think about including some of your personal favorite treats or stocking stuffers for a personal touch.

Spice up your social media game this holiday season, and think outside of the box. Have fun and remember it is all about giving back to those have supported you this year.
