This week’s social media topics are great to boost engagement with your customers in a funny way and also to do something good.
Here are our top picks for this week.
8th of December – #PretendToBeATimeTravelerDay
Calling all those Doctor Who fans out there, this is your day! Time travelling has captured our imagination for centuries. It’s about getting an answer to the “What if?” question, learning more about the past or finding out what the future holds.
Choose a time period you want to be in. Get dressed accordingly and start acting as a time traveller. Get creative here, you might use words from the past and regard everything with curiosity and fascination. Technology, what’s that?
Tip: Ask your customers – If you could travel back when/where would you go?
9th of December – #ChristmasCardDay
Are your team “I love sending greeting cards to everyone” or rather “Nah, can’t be bothered”?
Each year approximately 2 billion Christmas cards are sent in the US, with 900 million in the UK. That’s a lot! On average, people in the UK sent 16 cards. Despite the trend moving towards e-cards and greetings via social media, paper cards are still preferred by the majority.
No matter if you go for paper or digital, the tradition of sending a card to loved ones has been upheld. It is always nice to receive a personalised card, someone is thinking of you and spent some time writing a card.
Tip: Newsletter time – start preparing your holiday wishes to your customers. Think of the content and images you want to use. You might use a quote or share a story of your venue.
11th of December – #ChristmasJumperDay
Christmas jumpers are a substantial part of Christmas! Who’s got the silliest one? Once a tradition, now definitely a trend. But how did the knitwear become so popular? It was in 2001 when two Canadians organised the first “Ugly Christmas Sweater Party”.
But did you know that Christmas Jumper Day is a cheerful and festive event to raise funds for the Save the Children charity? Get your team involved and don’t forget to share it with your customers. Find out more here
Tip: Share a pic of your staff proudly wearing their jumpers. Also a great opportunity for a social media competition – post a pic of you in your favourite jumper and tag a friend to win.
