Facebook Photo Contest
Running a contest through your Facebooks business page is a great way to get your audience connected. Prompt your audience to post their favorite 4th of July memories, or have them dress up and capture a photo of themselves dressed in red, white, and blue. The ones with the most likes win a prize.
Social Media Campaign
There are a few different ways to go about doing this. One way would be to offer a discount on all items until the 4th. Another way would be to take the discount a step further by having customers unlock the discount codes after a certain amount of likes, shares, or comments have been met. This encourages your audience to spread the word for everyone to receive a special discount code.
Trending hashtags get your business seen. Come up with something clever that everyone will be comfortable using. Once a hashtag has been chosen, use it across all social media platforms and encourage everyone to use the hashtag with all posts.
