Using "Micro-Holidays" For User Engagement on Social Media

May is here (well, right around the corner) and we wanted to give away some important dates this month to help you jump start your content marketing ideas. Read through for your additional download this month and your May Content Calendar.

Feeling connected is a large part of what drives social media success. You know what else is all about connecting? The holidays. By planning this month, you'll remember the important dates - and maybe, you'll even get some inspiration for your promotional campaigns.

Why is it important to be up to speed with social media holidays?

Some of these may sound silly, but are great ways to connect with your fans in a fun and unique way. Using hashtags for a holiday can help you reach groups of people who are celebrating as well. Just REMEMBER that any content you produce should still be relevant to your business and a good fit for your brand.

Cinco De Mayo? Post a photo of your company out to lunch for the holiday.

National Receptionist Day? Post a photo of your receptionist and give them an appreciation.

Star Wars Day? "May the 4th be with you" is a common phrase used. Put your own unique twist on the idea and post it on Instagram/Facebook.

Mother's Day? Take a photo of all the mothers in your office and post your appreciation for them. You can even have your coworkers send in photos of them with their mothers to get everyone involved.
