The 12 Days of Folksy – our new Christmas Instagram Challenge

by Camilla

Join the ’12 Days of Folksy’ Instagram Challenge – 1-12 December 2018

Who doesn’t love an Instagram Challenge?! We definitely do! We love Christmas a whole lot too, so we thought why not combine the two and create the ’12 Days of Folksy’ festive Instagram Challenge?

The 12 Days of Folksy is a fantastically festive Instagram hashtag challenge you can join in with this December. It’s designed to give you ideas for Instagram posts, introduce you to new customers, grow your community, help increase your visibility over the crazy Christmas season – and also to be fun!

How do I join in?

It’s really easy to take part. Here’s how:
  1. First have a look at the prompts in the picture above.
  2. Create a post for each day from 1-12 December based around that day’s theme.
  3. Share your post on Instagram on the relevant day, adding the #12DaysofFolksy hashtag to your caption and tagging us @folksyhq.
Tip: You can plan your posts in advance and schedule them using a tool like Planoly,  Buffer, Hootsuite, Sprout Social or Preview App to make it easier.

What if I’m not on Instagram? Can I still take part?

Absolutely! If you’re not on Instagram, don’t worry. You can also take part on Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest or even on your blog. We’ll be running giveaways every day on Instagram though, so try to check in if you can to see what’s happening and how you can win.

 

What kind of things should I post?

We’ve kept the prompts broad so you can be creative! Interpret them how you like – think about giving people an insight into your creative life, snippets from your home and studio, how you do Christmas at your house, highlighting things like your craft skills, works in progress or beautiful packaging and your values.

This isn’t just about selling your products, it’s about connecting with people!

Make sure you check the hashtag regularly to see what other people are posting too, and share the love by liking and commenting. This will help everyone get seen more but it will also grow your community and help you find your tribe.

 

I heard rumours that there are prizes too…

Oh yes! Check our Instagram every day over the 12 Days of Folksy Challenge, where we’ll be giving away some incredibly special pieces by Folksy sellers. We’ve gathered together a selection of brilliant prizes that would make everyone’s Christmas dreams come true.

Look out for the first giveaway announcement on the @FolksyHQ grid and find out how you can win on Saturday 1st December.

That sounds brilliant, any advertising for Folksy is good. Unfortunately I don’t have Instagram, is anything similar planned for Twitter or Facebook??

You can take part on Twitter too, Jan! Just use the same #12DaysofFolksy hashtag.
