November Key Dates

As we approach the end of the year, it's important to continue incorporating key dates into your business calendar. Focussed content and events are a great way to generate new opportunities for your organisation, and enable you to engage with your clients and customers in a creative way.

Why Observe Key Dates as a Business?

  • To engage your customers and community with relevant and current events
  • To help unite your customers and community through days that people connect and identify with
  • To help create a sense of urgency amongst customers (these celebrations happen for a limited time, which generates a feeling of immediacy to take part in or consume content)
  • They are an opportunity for exposure. It’s worth noting that key dates often have their own hashtag, so make sure to use this when posting about them on social media to help new followers discover you!
