To help marketers plan content ahead and be ready for any opportunity to jump on, UK based digital agency 10 Yetis, is sharing its “Days of the Year” calendar.
Success in social media heavily relies on the ability to plan content ahead while remaining flexible enough to jump on opportunities that get more people engaged with a brand. Great. But if you don’t have an enormous team at your disposal, this can quickly become a lot of work. Unless of course you have the right tools on your side.
For the thirds year running, 10 Yetis, a digital and online PR agency based in the UK, has researched and created a comprehensive “Days of the Year” calendar that enables brands and other agencies to create reactive content and campaign ideas. This year’s version counts over 1,000 national and international days, weeks and months, as well as sporting events and national holidays to be celebrated.
The days can vary in their seriousness, from International Wiggle Your Toes Day on the 6th of August to, International Day of Peace on 21st September. Other notable yet obscure days include: Like Spaghetti Day (Jan 4th), Insane Answering Machine Message Day (Jan 30th), National Superman Day (June 12th) and Be Late For Something Day (September 5th).
This free to download printable calendar will help you by giving you the opportunity to plan ahead for reactive content, both for social media content as well as public relations campaigns. On top of helping you with content ideas, it also enables you to research the most relevant hashtags that will help grow an engaged and authentic audience for your content.
The calendar is free-to-download from the 10 Yetis website, no questions asked.
Head Yeti of 10yetis.co.uk, Andy Barr, said:
“The calendar celebrates everything on the spectrum of human oddness, from the bizarre to the downright ludicrous and whilst I am convinced that 90% of these days have been born from a public relations or marketing agency brainstorming meeting, it does provide a very handy tool for agencies and brands to create spectacular content, well in advance.
“The fact that there has been a twenty per cent increase in these sorts of days maybe speaks more about the gradual decline in society values. For example, national “take your house plant for a walk day”, is maybe one day that the world could have done without, but hey ho, let’s embrace it and create some social media content around it.”
