Welcome to your Social Media Content Calendar for December! We can’t believe ‘the season to be jolly’ is upon us once again!
The Christmas holidays are the one time of the year that many businesses slow down and take some time off with their loved ones. So it’s even more important to make your social media content count, as you probably won’t be posting as much as usual. Jumping on relevant hashtags for your business, especially on Twitter and Instagram will help with this. This is where our extensive content calendar comes in!
USING HASHTAGS IN YOUR SOCIAL MEDIA POSTS
Why use hashtags?
Using hashtags in your social media posts are great! They can help get your brand or business in front of people who may not be following you. This is because they are viewing content under that hashtag.
How you should use your hashtags?
This varies from platform to platform. As a general rule, we would advise the following…
- Twitter 2-3 hashtags are optimal and look better at the end of the post.
- Instagram You can add up to 30 hashtags either in the main text or in the first comment. If using in the main text, it looks better to have a gap of 4-5-line spaces between your text and hashtags.
- Facebook Hashtags haven’t really taken off in a big way, and we recommend using them only for big events that your brand can relate to.
- LinkedIn Hashtags have become more popular on this platform, and there is the facility to follow a certain number. These tend to be more for business, but there are plenty of business-related days each month so why not give them a try!
