  1. Fan-Only Holiday Coupon Promotion

 

 

 

Per a recent study done by Syncapse, 42% of your Facebook fans could come from simply offering them a coupon or discount! Say what?!

 

 

The easiest (and time efficient) method to grab sales and more fans before Christmas is to deliver a “Fans-Only” coupon promo.

 

 

Crunched for time? Then this is the strategy that suits you perfectly.

 

 

Creating a Fans Only coupon promo takes less than 10 minutes. For example, using Canva.com, we made the template below. You can cut that time in half if you want to make yours more simple.

 

 

Simply customize the text to match your discount preference, your business name, and what you want the person to do on your Fan page. Voila! Publish the graphic wherever you want to drive traffic from, include your Facebook Fan page URL and you are done!

  1. 7-day Giveaway Christmas Countdown

 

In this last week leading up to Christmas, give back to your audience by hosting a 7-day giveaway contest where you give out prizes, coupons, discounts, samples, etc. for the next 7 days (or however long you want to host it).

 

Your 7-day giveaway will include multiple winners, this is why running a contest like this will have the highest number of engagements and new fans to your business pages!

 

 

Who doesn’t love the idea that even if you do not win on the first day you still have 6 more chances? We do and you probably do too…

 

 

Your audience members will be following the contest through the 7 consecutive days. The best way to for the to cash in on their chances of winning is to Like your page and get those notifications first in their feed.

 

 

Do not be shy to give them a Call to Action to increase their chances of winning: Like your Page & Check the box to get the notifications first in their feed.

  1. Holiday Fill-in-the-blank Challenge

 

There is a never-ending option of Timeline contests you can run, but one of the best for the holidays is to do a “Fill in the Blank” Challenge.

 

 

Facebook’s new feed algorithm gives comments preference over Likes — so your contest status with 20 comments is going to be featured in customer’s news feed more than a status with 20 Likes.

Therefore, a fill in the blank challenge will get your business more notice than a simply “Like” contest.

 

 

Cool huh?!

 

Per a study by Simply Measured, fill-in-the-blank status updates receive 182 percent more engagement than other kinds of status updates! Let’s get you started with some Templates for a Holiday themed Fill in the blank contest, then you can make even more yourself:

 

 

 

My favorite holiday food is ____________.  Post your favorite holiday food here and you’re entered to win [prize]. Winner chosen at random.
