Celebrating key dates are a great way to beef up your social calendar, show that your company cares about certain social issues or to increase sales around certain dates. We recommend looking up key dates that align with your business, search for key dates that relate to your industry and post about them. It might not just mean one post on the day either, these dates can form social media campaigns for a week or a month leading up to them. The choice is yours! But our top tip, don't over do it. There truly is a day for everything and your entire calendar could quickly become a day of celebration for everything and anything.
