Not in Edinburgh? So not a problem! What’s happening in your city/town/area? Let people know what Hogmanay (or New Year if you are not celebrating in Bonnie Scotland) means to you – don’t forget the #blogmanay tag.


Have you got the feature filled Edinburgh’s Hogmanay brochure? Do you have your #blogmanay individual frames? If not, request some here:

Display your individual frames and a ‘how to use #blogmanay’ poster in a prominent place, put up a few frames as an example with your own product, e.g image of your most popular jar of jam!

On your ‘How to use #blogmanay’ poster:

  1. Fill in details of your business wi-fi and password (if available for public use, this is recommended as it will encourage wider use)
  2. Include your own Twitter handle, Facebook page, Instagram info
  3. Incentivise use with prizes or promotions relevant to your business, e.g. best image today wins a free smoothie or 20% off your next meal.

The best images shared using #blogmanay will win tickets to Edinburgh’s Hogmanay and one lucky blogger will win a meet & greet with headliners Pet Shop Boys!

You are not only encouraging customers to frame your business/product but you can use the frames for making your own memories and raising the profile of your company/organisation through your own social media, promoting any offers, discounts or particular moments that you want to “get the message out there” through the #blogmanay campaign.
