The Holiday season is within the air, some crisper than others, but it is most certainly here and as it has unfolded we have spent our spare time adding decorations to the outside of our houses; wreaths upon doors, stringed lights across the eaves of the roof and making the indoors just as festive. Why not our social networks?
There are way too many businesses that fear in celebrations that they may possibly offend someone. Understandably no brand wants to upset anyone within their community but to be honest; no prevention can be handled with good intentions. Thus, ignoring holidays is more noticeable than actively getting involved. This doesn’t mean that you have to celebrate every holiday either, some may even stay within the “Happy Holidays” section to play it safe and that is okay too.
But if we are decorating our homes and communities offline than we should be doing it online too and easily, by sharing funny or festive photos, videos of songs that are carols that many people would recognize and relate to. Add some holiday spirit to your logo, header or backgrounds and experience the Holidays with your audience.
There are many famous holiday quotes and memorable sayings from within movies that are only aired this time of year that you can use to relate further with your online communities. Don’t let the Holiday Season pass without having an input, by leaving your 2012 footprint with some glitter and connect through celebrating so when your audience jingles into 2013, you are sharing that moment with them.
