Everyone knows that Facebook is a huge boon for any small business. We all know that you have to have a presence on the popular social network in order to stay connected with your followers and clientele, but most business owners miss a valuable opportunity when it comes to marketing on Facebook during the holidays. Here are some quick tips that will help you spread the word about your business this holiday season!

1) Focus on Mobile

Facebook has over 1 billion users that access the social network via mobile devices (such as tablets and smart phones.) Don’t miss out on this valuable traffic during the holiday this season, make sure you optimize content and ads for mobile platforms.

Facebook has mobile news feed options for ads, and you can optimize posts for mobile devices (160 characters or less, smaller images, etc.)

2) Promote the Holiday Spirit

Don’t just post information about your products and services, use this space to foster the holiday spirit with your users. Throw in posts about holiday cooking, decorating, and trivia. Feel free to include pictures of other holiday classics like beautiful trees and movies.

In addition to the above, you can also update your profile/cover photo to include holiday elements and give your page a festive look.

3) Host Holiday Contests

Contests are a great and useful way to make your users act and engage with your page. Facebook has the ability to use 3rd party apps that you can utilize to host contests and capture email addresses.
