Regardless of what you decide to do at Halloween, make sure you are prepared early! Seasonal blogs and content take a good chunk of time. Plan well in advance and stay focused on the objectives. You’ve got a month before Halloween, you need to start rolling out content to support a promotion like this at the start of October.
You may actually find some exciting Halloween events to attend, so make sure you get those up on social media including hashtags, a geotag and an amazing caption with some emojis?.
The best Halloween hashtags are: #Halloween #Halloween2019 #TrickOrTreat #HappyHalloween #October
National Novel Writing Month…
A very exciting part of autumn and the perfect way to create amazing seasonal content for autumn is through National Novel Writing Month. The whole of November is specifically dedicated to the global celebration of all things novel writing!
In case you were wondering, as an award-winning author, Hazel religiously takes part in this wonderful celebration as much as she can every year. She also inspired the idea of taking advantage of the challenge to start creating your own business book.
During this month, you have the opportunity to advertise your products and services to those who are partaking in the NaNo month. You may need to think outside of the box for this one, so here are a few examples of what you might be able to offer…
- If you run a cafe, restaurant or pub, create a reward scheme or discount to encourage participants to make it their base for the month. (Hazel’s group camps out at one pub in Chester for the whole month – they make a fortune off it!). A popular one is to have a stamp scheme, once you hit your word count for the day, stamp away and once you get a certain number of stamps you’ll get something for free!
- Is there a product you offer that will help writers? Notebooks, pens and journals are essential for writers during this month. Can you offer something similar and maybe run a giveaway that you audience can win? Maybe they have to share a selfie of their best writing moment so far?
To help you join the NaNo month, here are the best hashtags for National Novel Writing Month posts: #NaNoWriMo #NaNo #NationalNovelWritingMonth #AmWriting #WritersLife
Alternatively why not participate in NaNo yourself? You can make a start on creating your own business book during this month. Releasing a book is incredibly advantageous for any sized business. One of the biggest benefits is having personal and business credibility. It gives you a source of pride and allows you to showcase what you and your business can provide for your audience. It can build brand clarity and help potential clients get to know your brand first hand.
Your book can provide your audience with in-depth knowledge about your industry, business and brand and it’s an insight for them to get to who you are and what your business represents.
We challenge you to spend 30 days in November writing down all of your book ideas on paper. At the end of the month, simply hand it over to savvy ghostwriter who will develop and shape it into your own business book and marketing masterpiece.
