As you get set to launch your holiday sales and promotions this holiday season don’t forget to get your hashtags in order. Include hashtags to increase your exposure and get your post discovered by people who aren’t already following you on social media. The right hashtags can help you gain followers and increase engagement. Use gorgeous images and have a call to action in your promotional and informational posts.
You may have a brand or business hashtag established. We use #EnterprisingMoms and #mombosses and include them in most of our social posts.
You can maximize the impact of holiday themed hashtags by using them on posts that compliment the holiday. Your hashtag should have a connection with the content of the post and not be gratuitous or random.
We put together a list of some of the popular hashtags for a selection of the holidays remaining in 2018. Mark your marketing calendars!
