The holiday shopping season has begun! Instead of posting product photos on Facebook, crossing your fingers and wishing for those holiday sales, there are ways to get your friends and customers talking so you can not only help them select the perfect gifts for their loved ones, but also build relationships with them so they become long lasting and loyal customers. Let’s learn how to post holiday content that will get you great engagement!
One of the best ways to get holiday sales is simply to encourage your audience to talk about the holidays. You can ask very basic holiday questions as well as questions that are more directed to the topic of shopping and gifts. You can post these as single questions, or have fun with a multi-photo post and ask them a bunch at once in your Facebook parties and turn it into a game!
Here are a few questions to help you get your creative juices flowing:
– Ask them about their holiday traditions.
Do you A. Wrap or B. Bag gifts?
What type of Christmas tree lights do you prefer?
A. Colored or B. White
– Ask them who is on their gift list.
Who on your list is an organization queen/king?
Who on your list loves to cook?
– Ask who they are struggling to find the perfect gift for.
Who on your list is the most difficult to purchase for?
How many teenagers are on your list?
– Ask who they need a $10 and under gift for.
How many teachers are you buying for?
Who are you filling stockings for?

Each location on Facebook and Instagram (Twitter, LinkedIn and Pinterest too!) attracts a different type of person, and by posting in all places you will increase the number of people with whom you can talk with about their gift giving list!
Give them holiday perks
Remember to think about pairing gifts in bundles and offering free shipping or gift wrapping. Your customers will love that you’re giving them options and alleviating some of their stress that comes along with the holiday season!
Showcase your products
Custom albums are a fantastic way to offer your followers a personalized shopping experience and highlight certain products without having them become overwhelmed or get “lost” on your website.
You can feature best sellers and create different albums according to genre:
Gifts for Her
Gifts for Him
Gifts for Kids
Gifts for Teachers
These are all great albums to have available for your followers and party guests to view. Giving them ideas and visuals will increase your sales – people LOVE suggestions and they love to SEE them showcased in an album!
