One of the biggest challenges with running social media account day-to-day is coming up with ideas for content – especially timely ones that tie in with current events.
It can sometimes be a bit overwhelming to do the research across multiple calendars to keep abreast of it all. There’s public holidays, charity events, sport, local festivals and just what’s on tv – it can be pretty overwhelming!
After you’ve waded through them all, you then need to work out which ones would suit your brand.
Below I’ve scoured the internet to come up with a list of days coming up in Australian in October and November which might give you some ideas for your upcoming social media content calendars!
It’s by no means exhaustive, but if there are any special ones I’ve missed in my adventures across the internet, feel free to add them in the comments!
