Incorporate your industry

Depending on your business, it can be a really good idea to somehow tie your organization to anything Christmas themed which you have planned for social media. Every year Christmas themed posts are some of the most trending bits of content and prove to get some of the best engagement on sites such as LinkedIn and Instagram. To prove this, certain organizations have profited from having such a big reputation for their Christmas themed content which focuses on brand advertisement while simultaneously giving their little bit to spread Christmas cheer. This year examples of companies who have done this include Argos and Aldi who’s Christmas advert is always highly anticipated, normally having some sort of strong symbolic message which tugs at our heartstrings but again and importantly, always resorting back to their core brand values.

For us here at Jonsigns, being a signage company we use our industry to our advantage while promoting Christmas. Having many departments with the potential to be creative aids us in incorporating that festive spirit while showcasing the elements of our company. For us, our vinyl department grants us no limit to our creativity as it allows us to create a themed vinyl with our company logo or brand message front and center with xmas context while at the same time providing a good bit of advertisement.

Fake snow

As snowfall in the United Kingdom can be quite temperamental and hard to rely on when planning content for your social media, it is good to look for different solutions to give your business that wintery feeling. Fake snow is a great and simple way to transform the exterior of your business environment when the real deal is no where to be seen and can prove to be just as effective if not better as a decoration as it wont turn to slush. Your business can profit from this by layering snow on top of any exterior company signage you may have or even if possible, placing a snow machine on your building roof and letting the snow fall, aiding you in creating a natural looking and festive photo.


Throwing a Fundraising event

A fundraising event for your business with a charity of your choice can be a great way to give something back this Christmas while at the same time giving your brand a good amount of exposure. This time of year is all about giving back and can lead to some great opportunities. Whether that being a charity close to someone in the organizations hearts or a local charity, it gives you the chance to give back to those less fortunate. By contacting local newspapers and journalists, this can help to spread the word of your event and hopefully raise more money while simultaneously giving your brand some decent exposure. The fundraising event can take many shapes such as coffee mornings, competitions and raffles or a good way to get more donations is to hold a sporting event such as football with a minimum entry cost for a tournament played at a location of your choice.
