Stuck for content ideas for December 2018?
Understandable! So much of the content you will come across through December is focussed on sales.
Buy this! No, buy this!
And it is easy to get sucked in and join the rush to get your stock in front of your customers. That will get you some sales (probably), but you will be fighting for space in the social media newsfeed with every other business seeing who shouts the loudest.
Make December the month where you stand out with content that gets you noticed for more than just price and a tenuous link to Christmas with our guide of social media post ideas and awareness days.
If you follow us on social media too you will be treated to a Seasonal Social Short video with a post prompt, a top social media marketing tip and a shout out for a business that we think does social well.
