4. Create a Christmas Offer For Your Customers
Offering your loyal customers a special promotion or gift for their support can be as simple as sending out a link on your Facebook page that directs them to receive a 10% voucher to get their favourite Christmas vino for less, or anything else you can think of that customers will love around this time of year.
5. Give Back
Christmas is that time of year that we enjoy with our loved ones, but it’s also a time to give back to those in need. It’s important to let people know that giving back during Christmas is not only a part of your work culture, but it aids in bringing us all together. Ultimately, you can do something as simple as starting a hashtag to spread awareness, or if you want to donate, start a go fund me page, of course with your business kickstarting the donations.
6. Interactive Content
Creating a few interactive games or quizzes for your followers on social media is a great way to enhance engagement and see how well customers know your business. It’s also a great way to get around the Christmas spirit and include some fun Christmas prizes for the followers who answer the most questions correctly! Who doesn’t love a prize?
7. Show The Behind The Scenes Of Your Business
Get your work mates together and create an epic video to post to your Instagram or Facebook pages that show your audience how fun your team is. Dress up in your favourite Christmas outfits, put up your favourite decorations, and show your followers that your work environment is as fun and loving as you make it out to be! Loyal customers and followers love supporting businesses that know how to enjoy themselves in a work environment too
8. Christmas GIF’s
We all know how fun GIF’s are to play around with, right? - Well, what better way to attract the attention of your followers?

They’re easy to consume and fun to share, especially around Christmas time.
9. Christmas Countdown
Think of this count down like an advent calendar - except without the chocolate. You could design a Christmas countdown starting on the first of December until the 25th. Whether you post each day between the 1st and 25th of December on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram, you can keep your followers excited for the lead up to the big day! This is just a fun way to engage your audience in the Christmas festivities and have them excited for that early morning wake up to opening presents under the Christmas tree with their loved ones.
