5 easy ways to boost your Easter social media posts

March 26, 2024

The Easter weekend is the perfect opportunity to help boost your sales and conversions and with careful planning and preparation, you can truly make the most of your Easter marketing campaigns. One of the best ways to skyrocket your campaigns is to schedule a series of Easter social media posts to further showcase your offering and help you reach a wider audience.

In this blog, we share five easy ways you can boost your Easter social media posts to help you get the most out of your Easter marketing efforts.

1. Make use of Easter hashtags

One of the best ways to expand your reach on social media is to use Easter hashtags in your posts. There are plenty of Easter hashtags floating around and they often have good search visibility because they aren’t too generic. Some hashtags you could include:

  • #EasterTreat – this hashtag would work perfectly along with a special Easter offer you’re running.
  • #EasterGift – same as above, or if you’re giving your customers a free gift with their order over the Easter weekend.
  • #EasterIdeas – this is a great one to use for driving brand awareness and awareness of your products and how they can be used.
  • #EasterIsComing – tease your audience with your Easter marketing campaigns with this hashtag a couple of weeks before you launch them.

When social media users are searching for hashtags like the ones above, you know they are actively looking for content and offers around this time, so it’s a great opportunity to maximise your social presence. However, it’s very important to not overuse Easter hashtags and also not use them just for the sake of it! Be sure they’re relevant to the content you’re posting.

2. Use creative images and videos in your Easter social media posts

With any social media post, your ultimate aim is to grab your audience’s attention, and to do that, you have to be posting creative images and videos to your channels. Videos in particular are highly engaging, so if creating a short and snappy Easter themed video is a possibility, then you should be doing this.

With your social media imagery, be sure to use classic pastel colour schemes throughout your templates, or add a few Easter related icons to your images such as eggs, chicks, and bunnies. While it might not be groundbreaking, it shows your audience you’re staying up-to-date with current trends and adapting to seasonal changes.

3. Boost your most engaging Easter social media post

As mentioned previously, social media can help you reach a wider audience and a good way to do that is to boost your posts, but only your most engaging post! For example, you might schedule a post to announce your Easter sale has launched, or you might share a special discount code with your customers – these are the kinds of posts you want to be boosting.

It may be a slightly less targeted and detailed way of advertising, but it can still help spread the word and ensure your post is seen. Boosting posts, as opposed to setting up paid social ads, allows you to set a smaller budget to cover the Easter weekend, so there’s no need to break the bank.

4. Run an Easter weekend giveaway

Running a giveaway over the Easter weekend can bring lots of engagements, new followers and potential new customers. The prize could be anything that you already offer, but promoted with an Eastery feel to it.

A great way of organically getting a giveaway going is by asking people to enter by commenting and tagging a friend on your post. That friend may then tag another friend, and so on and so forth. But make sure you don’t do this in a paid post as you may be penalised. You could then announce your winner on Easter Monday or the following Tuesday.

5. Create an Easter gift guide

If you sell tangible products, creating an Easter gift guide is a great way to showcase your offering along with sharing your own product recommendations. You’ll obviously want to showcase the products that have the most association with Easter. 

For example, if you sell clothing, you could promote your pastel coloured clothing. The same goes if you sell anything along the lines of home decor, accessories and toys. You could also showcase products that can be used in Spring time as well. Whatever you choose to include in your gift guide, it’s a good opportunity to help boost sales and traffic to your website.
