4 Thanksgiving-Themed Content Ideas That Will Actually Boost Engagement

NOV. 15, 2016:

Thanksgiving is one of the great American holidays, but when it comes to building content around Thanksgiving, sometimes the ideas can come up short.  There are, after all, only so many “fall beauty look” videos one can make. Think outside the box with these alternative Thanksgiving content ideas.

“Giving Thanks”
Though it seems like an obvious choice for Thanksgiving content, a “giving thanks” video allows viewers to get to know you better.  Even if your channel is dedicated to special effects beauty or budget fashion, taking a departure from your usual content calendar can be a breath of fresh air for viewers.  It can also let you experiment to see how vlog-type, personal videos perform.

Do you have any special tricks and tips for staying sane during the holiday shopping month?  Perhaps you make all your gifts or only shop online.  Why not make a dedicated video that can be watched year after year?

Creative Nail Art
Get ready to fall into a Pinterest black hole.  Thanksgiving nail art is a thing and there are a number of amazing ideas on Pinterest.  From glittery plaids and tartans to cartoon turkeys and falling leaves, the possibilities are endless.

Does your nail painting expertise fall in the line of Jackson Pollock?  No problem.  Why not make a video on Thanksgiving nail wraps.

Seasonal How-tos
Are you the hostess with the mostess?  Show off your skills with a video dedicated to hosting a holiday dinner party.  If you are new to hosting, use this opportunity to collaborate with another creator who is a domestic goddess, in exchange for a holiday beauty tutorial on her channel.  This is a great opportunity to capture a new audience.
