A different blog today.  I love using Twitter and social media to promote my holiday cottages so I thought I'd post a few tips I've learnt along the way.  Mainly this time using the hashtag (#) on Twitter.

  • Use the # symbol to categorize your tweets so that users can simply find you in these areas e.g. #holidaycottage #selfcatering #holidaycheer #familytravel #staycation or #bookdirect - these are some of my favourites, but there's plenty of others
  • Don't try and put too many #s in your tweet though it looks a bit cluttered and off-putting I think!
  • Do use topical #s in your tweets, so how about using #christmassy or #christmaslights to tweet about your holiday cottage Christmas decorations?
  • Try adding stickers to your tweets - it's fun and engaging. Tap to compose your tweet, tap camera and then tap sticker icon and have fun!  Then add a # that's relevant to the stickers.  #dogs #dogfriendly are some of the ones I use with stickers of dogs and paw prints.  Works well for dog friendly holiday cottages!
