    The Right Mix of Content

    On social media, you need to find the right mix of content. Selling and promotions on social media channels should always be balanced, whether it's for the holidays or every day. Exception discounts are meant to be shared, and social media can multiply the reach of your promotions. At the same time, it's crucial to keep standards high for images and copy, and to vary your mix of content. People appreciate great deals, but a non-stop stream of "x percent off" posts can come off as routine or lacking personality.

In 2015, we will see brands take major steps toward real selling on social networks. As you may have heard, Twitter and Facebook have both started testing in-stream buy buttons. It's a good bet that Facebook and Twitter users will see more buy buttons in the near future. Beyond selling directly within feeds, there will be a big overall increase in promotions and purchasing. Brands will want to flood their social channels with information on deals and discounts, but they will need to be wary of how they draft their content due to Facebook's new algorithm changes, impacting promotional posts.
