Aveiro, Portugal, December 04, 2014 --(PR.com
)-- The end of the year typically entails some last minute Christmas shopping, finalizing plans to see family and friends, and -- for marketers like us -- prepping for next year's campaigns. It also means people get to enjoy some of the most heartwarming and humorous marketing efforts of all year.
Social media brings people together, something that is especially important at this time of the year with people loving to share their Christmas experiences with others.
For those who spend a lot of time online this season, chances are they’ll see variations of #HappyHolidays or #Christmas on a number of they social networks. Why? Because hashtags are a great way to encourage user involvement and interaction with brands, as well as massively increasing their reach and spreading their message. The more people who see their tweets and start building up a relationship with their brand, the more people they have considering them when they start their Christmas shopping.
To celebrate the days leading up to Christmas, Oakreative – a Full Service Digital Marketing Agency in Aveiro – launched an Instagram inspired advent calendar, where they will be sharing one picture per day, between 1st and 24th of December, interpreting the day with a photo. Curious? Check the pictures on their Instagram Page (@Oakreative_).
For those who love to snap pictures throughout the holiday season, they are encouraging users to submit photos to create the most photographed Christmas in the world.
Here’s how to participate: Just take a picture related to Christmas or the Advent itself and post it to Instagram using the hashtag #xmasoak.
