Searching for new ideas on upcoming festive posts???
Well, we again did it for you!!
Every big festival is an opportunity to do something different with your marketing techniques. It’s also your chance to be less serious and more welcoming – don’t waste it. At the very least, create a custom image for all of your active social media channels to post on the 15th of August. And trust me it is totally ok not to sell anything that day just some engagement of followers is enough.
As we all know we are celebrating the Diamond jubilee of Independence this year which in itself is a huge emotion for the Indians. This day is celebrated to remember all the brave souls that sacrificed their lives for our country and also those who are still doing so in guarding and protecting our nation.
1- Freedom Fighters
You can share 60 words short stories about our freedom fighters. A short story on freedom fighters will serve two motives first the new generation will know more about the second it will increase the engagement of people on your posts so as to read more about other freedom fighters. The major reason is we had such a great and proud history of famous freedom fighters struggling their whole life to give us a free and independent India.
Maybe try and write something which is not generally shared about them before. Yes! It includes some research work but your hard work will definitely pay off.
2- Use Green, white, and Orange – all the way
For all the posts you do try and use the tri-color of our flag. Anything it is, a post or a video, any offer or contest. The tri-color post will instantly attract the attention of the audience and will end up increasing engagement on your posts. Show your patriotism online by emphasizing them on your social media posts.
You do keep on reaching your customers through emails this time try reaching with a tri-color theme. Remember, avoid being overly promotional and instead, focus on celebration and sharing. Keep the email short and simple, even if you are promoting something make it a bit creative by sharing some information and relating it with your Champaign.
4- Organize a photo contest on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, or Pinterest
Organize a very creative contest on either of the social media channels. Motivate people to share some independence day related posts or videos and ask them to tag you. Well, now you will ask why would someone put this effort?
You are going to add some giveaways or discounts for the winners of the contest. People always love some free gifts or goodies.
5- Guess the incidents/ personality
This is the most simple way to keep your audience engaged with your posts. You can share some pictures or small clips of a few pasts incidence for example- Jaliawala Bagh or maybe a picture of Gen.Reginald Dyer asking what was the incident or who is the person in the picture. It can be anything or anyone.
You can surely add some giveaways to this too. But this is something that will automatically engage the followers.
With all the posts and contests it is very important to mention the festive hashtags.
The popular and relevant hashtags will increase the reach of your posts on social media.
If you have great content but no Hashtags it will be of no use but the proper hashtag will attract more and more followers during and after Independence Day.
You can use Hashtags like-
And many more there are ways to find the most trending hashtags.
You can post a video or image sharing how your business or product is helping India grow even a bit, But yes it will surely gather a lot of engagement and attention from people around.
You should always make the most of the festivals. Social media engagement is very high during this holiday time and people are always searching for Ideas and something interesting. Be the most creative. Happy Posting!!! And a Very Happy 75th Independence Day from Team Digital Gurukul.
