Share this! Your friends will love it...

Social Media Holidays – also called Hashtag Holidays – can be a fun way to add creativity and fun to your marketing. Here are 200 March Social Media Holidays that you could choose to celebrate!

Why use Social Media Holidays in your Marketing?

As businesses, we need to have a balance of posting promotions for our business, and posts that simply build connection with our audience.

Oftentimes, we need to ask the question, “Why are people on social media in the first place?”

They are there to build connection. People are connecting with their family and friends, sharing updates and jokes, and building connection online.

This is even true when people are following a business on social media. If they simply wanted to see details about your store, or what products you have, they could look at your website. Why are they following on social media? They want a connection with your brand.

Your audience wants to see what types of things you are posting in real time. They want to see your brand’s personality and tone. They want to grow to Know, Like and Trust you. They want to engage with you!

And if a brand is always posting about their own products, their own promotions, and asking their audience to purchase…. there’s a missed opportunity. Some posts need to be conversational. Some posts need to be asking for your audience’s opinion. Some posts should be giving your audience a peek behind the scenes.

And THIS is where March social media holidays come in.

These “holidays” are fun days that people are celebrating, or posting about on social media anyway. And so, your business can choose a couple to join in on!

This helps you to join in on the conversation that your audience is already having. You are participating WITH them, and showing a fun or meaningful side to your audience, allowing them to know your brand even better.

How could you use Social Media Holidays in your Marketing?

There are several ways that you could “celebrate” one of these social media holidays in your marketing, depending on the one you choose.

Here are a few ideas to get you thinking:

  • Create a sale or promotion around the day.
  • Post a photo of you/ your employees participating.
  • Encourage others to post on social media in the way you are.
  • Have a photo contest on social media

How will using these Social Media Holidays help my marketing?

Your audience wants to engage with you. They want that “back and forth” interaction with you on social media.

When you create posts that encourage them to interact with you in some way, you are building a relationship.

In this day and age, people will only buy from businesses that they Know, Like and Trust. When you put in the time and effort to engage with your audience on social media, you are building into that relationship.

And ultimately, the more you engage with your people…. the more they will buy from you.
