5 Simple Tips to Improve your Online Marketing This Holiday Season

Are you ready for simple? 5 Simple Tips to Improve Your Online Holiday Marketing Efforts this year!

1) Start posting now. Yes, it is November 1st. Its open season for Christmas (did you hear?)

Consistent posting equals your posts are going to be seen later. Be funny. Be Creative. Oh geez, just be online!

Before you say it....Post? But what to post? See Tip 2.

2)  Be Strategic!
So you own a calendar, right? Ok, no. Then print one off, create one online or write a mock calendar on a napkin. Then start filling in the blanks. I'll give you a hint in Tip 3.

3) Don't Recreate the wheel.
Use what has worked in the past. Play off the almost a dozen "holidays" between now and the end of the year to run specials, promote products/services, or as just good content marketing pieces.
What are those holidays?
Election Day
Veterans Day
Black Friday
Small Business Saturday
Cyber Monday
Christmas Eve
Christmas Day
Day after Christmas
New Years Eve
New Years Day
You don't have to embrace them all but there is a long list of days to map out strategic content around.
