These days, there’s a holiday for everything! For brands looking to rise above the noise of social media, it’s important to get involved in relevant national and international holidays.
It’s also a fun opportunity to leverage your brand amongst some pretty weird and whacky days and support some of the more serious, valuable causes.
Our tip - ensure your content is true to the spirit of the holiday and not hiding a sales pitch, customers see right through this.
