Blog Ideas: Create some Christmas Content
Now that you’ve been given some tips on effective Christmas marketing campaigns courtesy of our previous blog article, we thought it would be nice to go into a little more detail about one specific aspect of the whole merry marketing package. Christmas blogging is one of these things that seems like a great idea at the beginning, but you can quickly find yourself drained of inspiration after a couple of posts. In this article, we look at various topics and approaches you can use to keep your blog packed with festive material.
Review Another Christmas Blog
This is possibly the simplest workaround for pre-holiday writers’ block. Find another blog that has already been written on something Christmassy and review it. It lends your blog a Christmas theme by proxy.
Whatever industry sector you’re in, there will almost certainly be some kind Christmas-themed networking event associated with it. Find out what this event is, and write about it. Keep it fairly light-hearted, focussing on the social and festive aspects.
Use your blog to host a Christmas competition. This should be done in sync with your social media accounts and email marketing campaigns, in order to get maximum exposure for the competition and boost your followers and likes.
If worst comes to worst, just drape a bit of tinsel over one of your products/staff members/office features, take a photo and write a blog about it. If nothing else, it can put a more human face to your company.
New Year’s Trends
Towards the end of the year, take a look at some predicted trends for your industry for the coming year and blog about them. Aside from being interesting content, this type of blog entry does add value to your business as it demonstrates knowledge and insight into your trade. This will bolster prospect and client confidence in your abilities.
Wish Everyone a Merry Christmas!
Your last post of the year should be a simple Merry Christmas, thanking your clients for their support during a busy and productive year. You should also include information about when your business re-opens in the New Year, assuming you close for Christmas.
Hopefully, this has given you a few Christmas blog ideas. Remember to put together a content calendar to ensure you’re not scrabbling for content a day before you need to set the blog live!
