Posted on in Business News ,Brands & Products News , Cycles News , Creative News

There's so much to be learned from the success (or lessons) of others, particularly when it come to the ever-moving landscape of social media. So, every week Maybe* dig through all the data to find the best social media posts. Maybe* find this by either using their super clever tech to analyse post engagements based upon likes, comments and shares or every now and again, they just shout out brands that they've come across who are doing things a little differently.

Take a look at the best social media posts Maybe* have rounded up through September and see what you can learn and implement for you own business. Use the takeaway to shape your strategy and watch your engagement grow, your sentiment soar and so much more.

 

Looking ahead

Whisper it, don't shout it but Christmas is coming. And after last year it seems that Marks and Spencer's customers are well in the mood to start the seasonal countdown. With the kids back at school and Autumn on its way, the retailer has hit social media with three Christmas posts over the last week covering everything from advent calendars to these snowglobe flavoured gin liqueurs which earned over 30,000 engagements.

While historically some consumers may bemoan the retail assault on Christmas a wee bit earlier than they like, this year it seems that consumers just want to look forwards. So help them do that. Help them get excited about the prospect of celebrating early.

How can you replicate this technique?

Whether it's promoting Christmas party bookings, party wear or getting your mince pies in the oven now, there's an appetite for a festive feast this year, that you have the opportunity to take a leading role in.

 

Welcome home

This week's best social media post comes from ADIDAS who went all Mancunian on us to celebrate the homecoming of Cristiano Ronaldo to Manchester United.

One of the biggest talking points of the week was maximised by ADIDAS with a sketch of the squad welcoming back the Portuguese favourite.

 

How can you replicate this technique?

News cycle events like this present many an opportunity for sports brands or businesses local to Manchester to jump on discussion points to grow their own engagement in a relevant and creative way. What national news stories and events are relevant to your customers at a local level? Seek them out and use them.
