3 tactics to consider implementing in your social strategy this Christmas

As we’ve just entered one of the busiest trading periods of the year, we’ve hardly had time to recoup our breath from Black Friday events. But now is the time to build on your November success.

It gave the consumer the option to opt out of things such as cookies of which are so vital in tracking the success of ad campaigns. 


The advantage of putting a portion of your budget into lead generation is that in the wake of the difficulty tracking as a result of IOS14.5 is that you can build up an email database with first-party data.
