Disclaimer: We made that National Day up. However, browse the internet today, and you will come across a variety of National Days, Awareness Months, and trending hashtags. It is definitely not easy keeping track of all that goes on. However, sometimes coming up with content that is relevant is also difficult. So we can use some of these days to our content creation advantage! When planning for the week or the month and using our SEO Dashboard to schedule posts on various platforms, it might be a good idea to go through the list of National Days coming up! Here are some more reasons why: 1. Relate to your audience People don’t just want to hear about your product or service, they want to be able to relate to you. You like sushi? Well, your clients might like it too! Post about National Sushi Day! National Dog Day? Yes, you may not own a dog but most of your clients might! So why not relate to them and publish a post asking them about their dog on National Dog Day? 2. More Visibility Using relevant hashtags can make you visible to people who might not have seen your page otherwise. Sometimes your business page might only be visible to people who are following or their friends. However, getting on the trending hashtag bandwagon gives your brand more visibility to people who are engaged with those national days or awareness campaigns. 3. Community It is important to build a sense of community. Who are your people? Who does your business serve? The causes that are close to their heart, will matter to them and they should matter to your business. So you can do your part and use your business platform to help bring more awareness to the causes that are being highlighted each month. Here are some (just kidding, there are a lot of) Awareness Campaigns & National Days you can choose that would be relevant for your business or your clients (potential or otherwise) or are close to your heart:
