There are just a few days left until Halloween and it’s time for creative costumes, unique pumpkin carving, and inventive social media content!
We’ve already given you a list of spooky social content to share with your followers and fans, but knowing just how effective adding a picture to a post can be, we decided to add a few ideas to the list!
Not to mention, by using the new themes and Halloween images added to Post Designer today you could complete these three tricks in a pinch.
So get ghouling!
1. Share User-Generated Content
Hosting a Halloween-themed Facebook contest seems like a no-brainer, but the more original content that can be created, the better! Try extending the life of your Halloween contest by showcasing the content that users sent in as a contest entry to your social accounts.
Use the Post Designer template below to add your favorite entry photos and give it a creepy caption.
** Just remember to tag the users of the photos so that you not only give them photo credit, but you give them an easy way to share their fame with their own network!
2. Invite Your Audience to a Digital Event
If you are hosting a Halloween sale, a webinar that happens to be on Halloween, or have really cool decorations at your brick-and-mortar establishment, be imaginative in how you invite your audience to join in on the freaky fun!
The templates below catch social media users’ eyes and will easily direct them to the event you want them to attend.
** Just remember to add a date, time, and link to your caption so that your audience can find all the information they may need about your event.
3. Join in on Trending Hashtags
While we usually give the advice to brand your own hashtag to promote yourself across social, sometimes it is just as effective to join a conversation that is already happening!
For example if #HappyHalloween starts trending on Twitter or Instagram this year, try sharing the templates below to show your brand’s personality. Post Designer allows you to add shapes, change colors, and add your own touch to the designs provided so you can really make a photo represent your brand. Use these tools to make your stamp on an already popular hashtag!
** Just remember this is a good opportunity to try and link to a blog post, ebook, or other form of content that relates to Halloween to increase impressions for that content as well.
