National Holidays: Should they be part of your Social Media Strategy

national holiday social media calander

National holidays are a great way to either bulk out or add to your already existing content calendar, especially if you may be struggling for content on any given month. However with this in mind, you will need to distinguish your brand values first before you think about getting involved with a holiday. For example, any meat brands that don’t offer any plant-based alternatives should ideally not get involved in both Veganuary and world vegan day as it is not in line with their brand nor the core values due to the fact they don’t offer anything that is vegan related.

If you need help either creating your brand values or to ensure you have the correct order of importance for your existing ones that align with your business, read our blog that explains all about core values and examples of well-known brands to help you create yours.
