If you’re decorating your home this year, your Synergy Xmas Lights Trail profile is the best way for people to find your house and plan their visit. You want to get as many votes as possible, so it’s worth putting a bit of effort into making your profile stand out – for all the right reasons!
Feel like you’re better at stringing lights together than stringing words together? No problem.
Here are our top tips to help you create a fantastic profile.
1. Name your home
You don’t have to give your profile a name but it’s a great way to help people remember your house – and vote for it! You could name it after your surname, your street or suburb or combine them somehow with a Christmas theme. Think Santa’s Little Hulletts, Whiteman Wonderland, or Rudolph and the Rogersons.
Please remember: The details in your profile – including your address – are available to the public to help people find and enjoy your decorating efforts. Try to keep it general and don’t give away too many personal details.
2. Share your inspiration
Your profile needs to include a short description. This is a great opportunity to share with others what you love most about Christmas and why you light up your home. You might like to share what inspired your decorations, what motivates you to decorate your home and any special features visitors should look for.
Sharing your story helps to build excitement and interest and draw visitors to come and appreciate your hard work – and hopefully cast their vote!
3. Take a great photo!
Your photos are a great way to show off your lights. You can add a short video too if you like. Get more tips here on how to take a great photo of your lights display.
4. Think about what you would like your visitors to know
If you plan to switch your Christmas lights on at a certain time every day, or are only lighting up your house on certain days, make sure these details are in your profile. This will help your visitors to plan ahead and make the most of their Synergy Xmas Lights Trail.
5. Choose a charity
You can choose a registered charity or not-for-profit to support in your profile – or join us in supporting Lifeline WA. Your profile can include reasons why you’ve chosen your charity to encourage people to donate.
Once you’ve registered, we will send you a Synergy Xmas Lights Trail sign for your front yard. You can also download a copy of the sign here to use in the meantime. This will show your visitors that you’re part of the Synergy Xmas Lights Trail and encourage votes for your display.
