Christmas Social Media Guide

The festive season has arrived and it’s time to step up your social media engagement! This time of year is busy, but great customer service, tips and advice at this time of year can translate into increased sales and return business in the New Year.

We’ve tried to make this easy for you, but we encourage you to get personal with your customers and share what you’re doing in-store, what your specials are and the tips and tricks to wow their guests this Christmas.

If you’re into hashtags, consider using #Christmasham #aussieham and #aussiepork.

This is a guide, but it will work best if you personalise it!
