This Christmas we took the opportunity at OnBrand to showcase our TikTok expertise with a “12 Days of Festive Marketing Tips” campaign.
Every day for 12 days, pre Christmas to the New Year, we created and posted a series of Top Festive Marketing Tips and shared on our social media channels. The majority of tips would resonate all year round not just at Christmas, so we wanted to post them again below, so they can be referred to time and time again. We hope you found them useful!
If you would like to discuss any of the tips further and understand how we can support your business with its marketing activity in 2023, please do get in touch. We would love to help. Or head to our TikTok services page to learn more.
