This Christmas, we’re all going to get creative. Schools have had a great year on Twitter and you’re going to end it on a high. The problem many school marketers have is coming up with engaging content on a daily basis. We thought we could jump in and give you a hand.
Every day we are going to be setting a different challenge. So, for 25 days you will have something new to share on Twitter. The idea is that you will be able to share things that your communities will be interested in. It also helps you get into a rhythm of tweeting (and will hopefully inspire you too!).
To take part, and be in for a chance to win daily prizes, post your tweets using #SocialAdvent. You will be able to follow along and find inspiring content from other schools. We will be monitoring #SocialAdvent every day and picking our favourite tweets for each badge.
