Are you interested in how you can keep your children safer with tech? We are too – and we’re excited to be one of the first consumers to be unofficially testing the Doki Watch in our area! This is being touted as one of the best smart watches for kids. It only allows preset calling to contacts you approve, monitors your child’s activity levels, and will alert you if they leave an area you predefine for them. It will even send you immediate SOS alerts, begin recording audio, and send you (and any other emergency contacts you assign) GPS location data if SOS is activated. So stay tuned and we will let you know our thoughts on this little device in the upcoming weeks after we do a full run through of most of its features!
It’s that time of year again. You’re looking into holiday social media plans, but you’re not sure how to start. Look no further as we share a few lessons we’ve learned from that wise and beloved old poem by Clement Clarke Moore.
Twas the Night Before Christmas
Don’t wait until the night before Christmas to begin dreaming up those perfect holiday plans. Many people feel stress and pressure drain the joy out of the season. Before they know it, time has slipped by and things are left until the last minute. Don’t let this happen to you.

The holidays are a time of festive celebrations and of thinking about days gone by. Utilize social media to celebrate this season and to bring gaiety to your shoppers. Delight them by stirring up feelings of laughter, cheer, peace, and fond memories. This is not a time to manipulate or to push, but it is the time to invest in creating lasting relationships and promoting a sense of community.

You will have to put a little effort into spreading goodwill and holiday cheer, but this isn’t a cause for grumbling and complaining. Have fun with it! There are many celebrated social media campaigns that you can gain inspiration from.
- Everyone loves sentimental storytelling. Now is the time to reminisce and share what you have been doing for the community throughout the year. Be creative, warm, and heartfelt. This is also a wonderful opportunity to promote awareness about your favorite cause by sharing inspiring stories about it.
What to your wondering eyes should appear but a holiday video to bring good cheer. Thoughtful holiday humor or sentimentality in the form of a video brings a sense of connection and merriment to your site.
- Give them visions of sugar plums to dance in their heads. Custom tailor Old Navy’s highly successful giveaway campaign. On Black Friday, they gave the first 100 customers to line up at their door a ticket that entered them into a drawing for one million dollars. Change this idea up and make it your own.
And to all a Good Night
