Key Marketing Dates 2016

Looking to finalise your marketing calendar for 2016?

Well you’ve come to the right place.

This year our marketing team have done all the hard work – so you don’t have to!

We’ve compiled a list of 2016’s key events and all-important dates (with accompanying marketing tips and hints!) tailored specifically for marketeers diaries. We hope you’ll find it both useful and inspiring as you smugly sign off a day early on your content themes for this year.

Our advice would be to cherry pick the dates and events that are most relevant to YOUR business and build them into your planner. Alternatively save the list in your toolbar and remember to check back when in need of marketing inspiration for relevant (and sometimes completely wacky) marketing ideas and conversations your brand can get involved with.

PLUS as an added bonus, don’t forget to use Google Trends to find peaks in searches that are relevant for your sector!
