10 December Monthly Holidays
Does your business sell items that could be used as gifts, or in holiday celebrations?
Be sure to create a “gift guide” or “holiday party guide” on your blog, and mention how your products can help readers enjoy their holidays even more.
Don’t forget to follow up with a series of social media posts leading to your article, or the products themselves.
Be sure you “gift” your loyal followers as well! Depending on what you have to offer, it could be a discount coupon, a free digital product, or even a high-value physical gift for those who bring you a new client.
Even more ideas! Does one of the month-long holidays below resonate with your business and audience?

Feel free to jump in and use wintry / holiday themed photos and graphics all month long.
Consider holding a Cyber Monday sale. It’s on December 2 this year.
