To put it frankly, successfully exploiting the holidays for sales is one of the biggest tools a small business owner can have in the ole tool belt. If done appropriately and tastefully, just about any holiday can become a great platform for a new promotion, an engaging social media contest, or even just another excuse to post a pic of your puppy in a costume (guilty). Whatever the endeavor, its success on social media is sure to depend at least heavily, if not entirely, on using the proper hashtags.
So, without further hesitation, check out our compilation of 31 Halloween Hashtags to Promote Your Business. It's almost SCARY how helpful they'll be!
