While sum­mer weather still rages, the hol­i­day sea­son is creep­ing up on unsus­pect­ing retail­ers and mar­keters. Thank­fully, the Con­text Optional elves were already hard at work on the holiday’s best and bright­est social mar­ket­ing tips. Con­text Optional and its par­ent com­pany Effi­cient Fron­tier offer a com­plete solu­tion for brands to acquire, acti­vate and drive value from fans on Face­book and Twit­ter, which cre­ates an opti­mal land­scape for seiz­ing hol­i­day retail opportunities.

Read on for a few tips:
1.) Put Your Lit­tle Elves to Work
Social endorse­ments dur­ing the hol­i­day sea­son spread brand aware­ness and good cheer. Arm your biggest fans and fol­low­ers with a great deal and let them spread the word for you.

2.) Bring Santa’s Work­shop to Them
F-commerce ampli­fies online hol­i­day shop­ping with social endorse-ments. Bring social shop­ping to tar­geted audi­ences where they spend most of their time online, the Face­book News Feed.
