One of the most popular items in my online shop is my key dates calendar. It’s a favourite with digital marketers, social media manager and bloggers because it helps plan the marketing year. It’s a tool that I started designing for myself several years ago because there was nothing available that fit the Australian market: a list of key dates, holidays, events and special days that made sense for Australia. Yep, US Independence Day is fun, but not super relevant for us Down Under!

As a social media marketer, leveraging key dates for campaigns for my clients can be a critical way to boost awareness of a brand or topic, tying news or an event to an existing talking point. But, for many brands, the big known events aren’t always relevant to different organisations, or smaller, niche days are missed.

Having a guide to the upcoming dates means you can plan your marketing for the year against special days in advance, to be proactive with your planning, rather than being reactive.
