Matcha Design - Wednesday, September 23, 2015
For you to succeed in social media marketing, it is important to create a calendar that shows a schedule for your business. A social media calendar will help you remember important dates as you will be able to set reminders that will help you push your advertisements according to the dates. You should only consider holidays that affect your business in one way or another. Let's focus on some of these dates that you should include in your social media calendar.
Employee Appreciation Day
This day is celebrated every first Friday of March. It is celebrated to recognize and appreciate employees by the employers in all industries. Employees are a company's biggest asset and appreciating them is one great way of motivating them.
This day is celebrated on the 22nd of April and it is currently known as the Administrative Professionals day. It was created to recognize and appreciate the work of the receptionists and administrative assistants. Administrative workers play a key role in making the company function efficiently and they do deserve to be appreciated.
Black Friday is the Friday that follows thanksgiving and it is celebrated on the 28th of November. Major retailers in the United States open very early because this day is regarded as the start of Christmas shopping.
It is celebrated on 2nd of December as a global giving day. It involves volunteering ones time, giving a donation, or simply spreading a word at the beginning of Christmas shopping
National Pet Day
This holiday is celebrated on 11th April every year. It was founded in 2005 to celebrate the wonderful pets in our lives and to raise awareness of pet adoption.
The Dog Day
This refers to the hottest days of the year usually in late July and early August. These dates correspond to the appearance of the Sirius-the largest and the brightest star in the sky. It is also called the dog star hence the name-the dog day. These days were given the name because the ancients trusted that the star led to the heat experienced those days.
The Cat Day
The cat day is celebrated on October 29th every year. It was celebrated for the first time in 2005 to help sensitize the public on the number of cats to be rescued every year. It is also a day that cat lovers celebrate the cat in their lives for the love and companionship they get from them.
And there is Customer Appreciation Day which can be any date(s) of the year. You got the picture.
