Gifts. Sales. Parties. Visitors. Decorating. Hosting. Planning. There’s so much to think about this time of year! To help simplify your holiday marketing, we’ve put together three simple yet powerful ideas for social media marketing during the holidays.
1. Use Holiday Hashtags
Hashtags are placed in social media posts to help readers find similar content. They are like the Dewey Decimal System of the internet. These clickable links search for posts that used that hashtag on any given social network. To use a hashtag, simple copy and paste one of the hashtags listed below into your social media post (or the comments of the post on Instagram).

Christmas crafts and gift ideas are BIG trends on Pinterest during the holidays. Try pinning lots of holiday recipes, do-it-yourself decorations, and gift ideas to your business Pinterest account. Create specialty boards just for these topics or integrate them into your everyday boards.
