UGC

User-generated material is, without a doubt, some of the most impactful content you can share on social media. You can tap into passion and brand loyalty by engaging the individuals who purchase your products and are already engaged.

Use a Christmas-themed hashtag to encourage your followers to participate. Decorations are an obvious example, where individuals may submit images of their inspired Christmas décor ideas. Another option is to dress up for a Christmas party. You see what I mean.

Whatever you do, make sure you're using the appropriate hashtags and that you start promoting the competition a few weeks before Christmas. It's all about the build-up.
