How to use the giveaway templates
To give back to your customers and thank them, we’ve created templates you can use for a quick weekend giveaway. These are intended to begin on a Friday and end on a Sunday. You can either use the template we have in our Advent Calendar or use any of the templates from the Giveaway collection from here.
The idea behind these posts is to thank your customers while also boosting your social media engagement. The more likes and comments the better the Facebook or Instagram algorithm will pick up your posts and show them to your customers and audience. Link to the giveaway collection.
All of these posts can be also shared in different formats. Do you want to announce your giveaway in a Story on Instagram? No problem, we got you covered. Just change the aspect ratio, adjust the text and you are ready to go!
How to get the most from the social media engagement templates
You may have noticed some of the templates are more open-ended or have question prompts. These were designed to help stop your follower’s scroll and drive more social engagement!
In order to get the most out of these templates, we’ve rounded up our top 3 engagement tips.
Here are our top tips:
If applicable, use the caption for some light business promo. For example, on Day 19 the post asks what’s on your follower’s wishlist. This could be a perfect time to promote the wishlist function on your online store
End your captions with a call to action (CTA) to reinforce the question in the post and encourage responses
Reply to comments right away. This encourages dialogue and shows that there is a real person behind the account
We hope you enjoy this social media Advent Calendar. Happy Sharing!
