    As a rule of thumb, the holiday season means more sales for businesses.

    But that’s only if you play your cards right and leverage the power of social media marketing to promote your business. 

    It’s better to start early, too.

    Free Thanksgiving templates to announce a sale 

    Traditionally, Black Friday — the biggest sales time of the year — follows Thanksgiving. But it doesn’t mean that you can’t give the shopping frenzy an early start and surprise your customers with great deals on Thanksgiving. 

    Make sure you differentiate between your Thanksgiving offers and Black Friday offers, though! The easiest way to do so is by including Thanksgiving-related visuals in your designs — pumpkins, turkeys, leaves, and other autumn-inspired attributes. 

    Here are some of our favorite Thanksgiving color palettes:

    There’s another risk-free, minimal effort way to get involved with Thanksgiving in 2022. Simply offer your social media followers some valuable Thanksgiving-related content — how tos, recipes, listicles, tips and tricks, festive playlists, and more!

    Here are a few examples of posts centered around Thanksgiving that you can publish on Facebook or Instagram as part of your Thanksgiving social media marketing campaign:

    • X best pumpkin spice latte recipes
    • Top songs to play at Thanksgiving dinner
    • X best Thanksgiving movies
    • Awesome pumpkin carving stencils 
    • Thanksgiving cocktail ideas 
    • Little-known Thanksgiving facts
    • X best Thanksgiving wishes

    It’s up to you whether you go all out and keep your Thanksgiving content available year-round, or make it exclusive and time-sensitive. Depending on your decision, you might want to either opt for a post for your Instagram or Facebook feed, or go for the Instagram or Facebook Story format. Or make it a combination of both! 

    Regardless of what you settle on, make sure your publications are packed with value and well-designed. 

    While we can’t help you with the contents of your post, we definitely can ensure your Thanksgiving designs are top-notch.

    To make your Thanksgiving social media post more creative, you can…

    • Say “Thank you” in many different foreign languages
    • List all the business achievements you’re grateful for
    • Thank your most active followers
    • Thank all the media that featured your business in the past year
    • Thank your suppliers
    • Thank your team

    You can also use the Thank you post to share some behind the scenes of your business and, therefore, further humanize your brand. 

    Here are several free thank you card templates you can customize for your social media:
