On Social Media Content is King

Finding new and exciting things to post on social media all year round can be a big challenge. If you are running a business and managing your social media accounts, it becomes even more difficult. They say that content is king because content is how you are able to engage with new audiences and share information about your brand. However,  spending time thinking up new and exciting ideas can be time-consuming. That’s why we’ve created this handy content ideas guide, focusing on national holidays and events. 

Making social media easy for you…

During the year you can use this guide and select a holiday or event to focus on, then create shareable images, blogs, events or videos linked to that particular holiday. These can then be shared on your website and social profiles. But remember, our ideas are just a guide, make sure the random holidays you choose are relevant to your business and your brand!

Let us know what you think…

We would love to see comments from you, so please feel free to share your favourite random holidays with us in the comments and the ways you have used these on your social media. Our list of random UK holidays is not exhaustive and there are always more quirky days being added each year. So, why not bookmark this page for those busy days when you are struggling for ideas and are in desperate need of some inspiration.
