Tip #2: Peep Last Year’s Reports
Are you unsure how much activity you’ll be getting over the holidays on social? This is something to keep in mind as you plan out next year’s content and activities.

Tip #3: Have a Crisis Plan in Place
It’s a tale as old as time: a Social Media Manager lets her guard down and something goes awry.
Remember that your job doesn’t end because the office is closed. Make sure you have a crisis plan in place if there is a customer emergency.
Tip #4: Schedule Ahead of Time
Let’s be real, there’s no way you’re whipping out your computer at the family dinner table to do some tweeting. Make sure you schedule out enough content to satisfy your audience! You might even see a nice spike in engagement during this time — all that family time sends some straight to Twitter.
Tip #5: Be Aware of RTM Possibilities
People are on social media during the holidays — they’re talking about their food, gifts, family, movies, etc. There are tons of real-time-marketing possibilities for brands, so keep your head up and swiveling for opportunities to hijack popular conversation topics.
Have a Happy Holiday from myself and all of us at Simply Measured!
