Hashtag Days are really big at the moment, proving that there is an occasion to be celebrated for just about anything. Hashtag Days are a great way for you to update your social media with relevant up to the minute information plus they provide more content for you to share over the year.
Your customers will appreciate the reminders that you can provide them and Hashtag Days are a great way to gain social media engagement and social media conversation. We are talking about sharing updates that are more on the quirky side and you can make of them what you will.
Plot the Hashtag Days out on your social media content calendar. That way you will be able to check on any clashes with any other days or promotions / awareness that you have running.
Make sure that you check before using the #Hashtag(s) that they are relevant for your brand and business. Too much use or the wrong reasons will cause people to unfollow you.
Also before using please check that the right hashtags are popular or that they are trending. There are variations that get picked up e.g. #SmallBusinessSaturday / #SmallBizSat . So check which one has the most posts against it before using. This may also stop the use of those automated tweets if you need to check on the day!
As well as the Hashtag Days I’ve given below, you can celebrate the first of the month (each month) for just that, being the 1st of the month. Start a new month with a new leaf aspect.
Seasons are also popular, so celebrating the coming in of Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter. You will also find supermoon and midsummer dates represented in the press. Use these also, though they will change year upon year.
I will continue to update this blog post as more #Hashtag Days reveal themselves in 2018!
