It’s that time of year again–the time to put up the lights, buy tacky sweaters, and spend more time with your extended family than you really want. (That is why they call them extended, right?!)

Although you’re busy during the end of November and thru December, you can’t forget about your customers who are still turning to you. This is the busiest time of the year for shopping so if you haven’t used social media at all for your business this year, you may want to start. You can capture A LOT of cliente and customers by simply engaging with them and marketing your awesome products. Even if you have a more robust or labor-intensive product, such as roofing repairs or carpentry, you can still gain exposure because customers are looking to spend that lovely green stuff they’ve earned through holiday bonuses and great grandma Marge.

Here are 25 ways to engage with your customers and clients this holiday season:


1. What your customers are planning to do for the holidays
2. Who has or has not done their shopping or who is definitely waiting until the last minute
3. Who has considered donating a gift to an orphanage this holiday season
4. What songs your customers love to listen to around the holidays
5. What traditions your customers engage in
6. What movies your customers love to watch during the holiday season

6. Holiday images that your customers have to guess or write captions for
7. Clips from classic holiday movies or TV specials
8. Holiday trivia information or questions

1. Your favorite holiday memories (and then ask for their favorite memories)
2. Your holiday plans (and then ask your customers what they’ll be doing)
