Let’s Beat the Winter Blues, Together!
How are you keeping your followers and customers motivated this winter? With February chills still in the forecast for most of the country, there are ways to get them feeling all warm inside. Inundating your feed with red hearts is a start! With #Valentines Day nearing – why not fill up your feed with lots and lots of love! Oh and the #Olympics are starting this week – this is 100% motivation. Take the opportunity for the next month to use every angle that this event brings – national pride, fitness and health goals, inspirational stories of athletes, etc… We’re always about thinking outside the finish lines!
WHAT’S ON TREND
IMAGINE WITH ALL YOUR MIND
Awaken their senses. In the colder months, it’s always a good content marketing trick to include colorful posts in the newsfeed.
BELIEVE WITH ALL YOUR HEART
Share the love. Post it in all your social media channels. Don’t only promote to them but make them feel appreciated. You can understand this. After all you, too, are a consumer somewhere.
ACHIEVE WITH ALL YOUR MIGHT
Instill some competitiveness in your followers. A little competition never hurts. Why not incorporate it into a promo in store or online?
RETAIL IS DETAIL
We all know to invigorate your shoppers in the retail sector, you need to keep showing them something new. Fret not, if you don’t have new, on hand. Bring out an older model but create a cool, new graphic and BOOM! It’s NEW all over again!
SALES, SALES, SALES!
It’s almost expected that you will be on sale in the wintertime! It’s a great time to clear your inventory and get ready for the #Spring collections.
ON TOP OF THE WORLD
Let’s be real, video is where it’s at – right now! Create instant videos with Facebook Live and Instagram Stories. Create everlasting posts with our Graphic Editor!
