Whether you love beer or not, the Oktoberfest holiday needs no introduction. During the period of the festival, people upload thousands of photos to their social media profiles with event-related hashtags such as #Oktoberfest and #Wiesn to share the atmosphere of the beer festival.
Halloween is the scariest international holiday. And one of the most overdressed. Needless to say, that it’s one of the most intense social media activity days, that can last a week. And the most ‘instagrammable’ one for sure. So, if you don’t want to trick your customers by ignoring the fact of Halloween, you’d better treat them with an outrageous amount of marketing ideas. And candy.
In short, Diwali is an Indian version of a New Year celebration. This Hindu festival of lights symbolizes the victory of good over evil. During Diwali people enjoy spending time at home with their families, exchanging presents, eating tasty food, and watching fireworks.
We created this marketing calendar to help every marketer out there smartly plan their activities for the whole year. Everyone who is somehow involved in planning and implementation of a marketing strategy – this calendar is for you!

For some holidays we’ve gathered interesting stats, ideas for marketing campaigns, and common activities that other marketers perform during the celebration. No matter what social media platform you choose for advertising – Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, or all at once – post weekly or at least monthly, and you’ll see higher user engagement metrics. During the holidays it’s even easier because you already have a reason to post. Come up with bright and catchy designs or just pick a template in Crello to edit in seconds, and this marketing calendar will become the only holiday planner you need.
No one wants to be forgotten. Holidays are a great opportunity for businesses to remind about themselves, while for the ones greeted, it’s a pleasant chance to feel they’re special and important.
The best part about scheduling your greetings beforehand is that you have enough time for creating something significant. The earlier you start preparing for a specific holiday – the better will be the outcome. Throw a sale, do a promotion landing page, create a cool free content asset, or do everything at once. Congratulating users, followers, or clients leads to a bigger engagement rate, higher conversion, and most importantly, they will definitely appreciate that you care for them.
Brand recognition and high performance don’t happen in one week or even a year. It’s built on perseverance, honesty, and genuine care for users. This is the core of each and every marketing activity you do throughout the year.
Whatever is the upcoming holiday, it’s important to prepare thoroughly. Plan various marketing activities with a focus on both business profit and user engagement. Lots of brands prepare printable cards for their business partners or the most loyal customers on different occasions. Some brands tend to throw giveaways or funny contests to entertain the audience. Others schedule digital marketing campaigns, consisting of social media ads, posts, and emails. No matter which way you promote the brand, online or offline, remember to do it step-by-step and consistently. Our marketing calendar is here to help you with this.
