7. Advent calendar
Want repeat visits to your site during December? Create an advent calendar with new appealing content every day for 24 days.
Or see if you can get included on someone else’s advent calendar. The Guardian Voluntary Sector Network is featuring a different charity each day, and is sharing them via Twitter:

8. Demonstrate your track record
If you’re the BBC then you have plenty of content to share in the run-up to Christmas. Fortunately the BBC’s Twitter Advent Calendar has included the BBC Radio 4 Christmas Appeal for St Martin’s-in-the-Fields.

9. How much is that snowman in the window?
— Evelina London (@EvelinaLondon) December 7, 2016
BBD Perfect Storm is running a Twitter campaign combined with a shop window display in London to benefit Evelina London Children’s Hospital. For every tweet with the #KeepDeFrostyAlive hashtag, the company donates 10 minutes of freezer power to keep DeFrosty the snowman ‘alive’ and they donate 10p to the charity.
DeFrosty is on display in Old Street courtesy of Derwent London, and you can view him (or her) via a YouTube livestream.
