2018 Hashtag Holidays

Hashtag Holidays

It's 2018, and almost every business has a hashtag holiday. These social media holidays offer a unique opportunity to raise awareness about your product, service or cause, but like most things "social media" timing is everything. 

If you run a pancake house, March 4th or #NationalPancakeDay offers the perfect occasion to create a buzz on social media about your business, but be careful hijacking an unrelated hashtag holiday can cause a tidal wave of negative publicity for your business.

Have fun with hashtag holidays and remember a creative campaign will set you apart from your competition.
