Great Free Resources for Your Holiday Social Media Marketing Campaign

happy-holiday-wishes-quotes-and-christmas-greetings-quotes_271By now most retailers who include social media as a part of their online marketing plan – and that really should be everyone – understand that sell, sell, sell is just not the way to approach a successful social media campaign. No matter what the platform, it’s all about engagement, and there may be no more important time to focus on that aspect of social media than during the holidays.

One of the easiest ways to reach and engage your target social audiences at this time of year is to give them something great to share. Fun facts and figures, as well as great images and memes are extremely popular but who really has the time to source such things when you are also trying to prep your business for a holiday shopping rush? That’s why, as our present to you, we’ve collected some great content you can share right now, just to get you started. And don’t worry, we don’t mind if you take all of the credit:
