There are many ideas for each day of each month.  Some may seem too silly to use but thinking out of the box may have you creating content that is both different and entertaining while still being RELEVANT to your industry or your audience. 

Think about Days of the Month as a way to create content which is Funny, Wow – didn’t know that”, this is worth sharing with friends, a great idea for business promotion, simply inspiring, a cause to be associated with or just a hashtag that is going to increase discoverability.

This JANUARY Daily Content Marketing inspiration is a resource to help you create a post or write a blog when you are stuck for ideas or to avoid too much selling. The rule of thumb is 20% promotional and 80% educational, enriching or entertaining

Remember social media is about BEING SOCIAL! Get creative and build a brand with a personality that connects with your audience. 

How to Entertain and Engage with our JANUARY Daily Content Marketing Inspo

  1. Think about business and industry first and ask: Does this “Day” make sense and how can it be leveraged to communicate a marketing message that adds value in your audience’s newsfeed?
  2. If not, think about your Ideal Customer Interests, Hobbies and Influencers.  These are a powerful way to get Attention and Engage with your audience.
  3. If a content idea does not spring to mind that relates to your business or is of interest to your Ideal Customer niche audiences then the next step is to Google it and see if you can embellish from there.

Daily Content Marketing Hashtags enable your Discoverability

Not all Days of the Year or National Days will be relevant to your business or audience but do not underestimate the value of a Day of the Year Hashtag to increase the DISCOVERABILITY of your content.

Try to use one of these every day as inspiration to build your message and to increase the quality and quantity of posts you distribute daily.

“Great content is the best sales tool in the world.”

Marcus Sheridan

Great Content Marketing is about messages that invoke positive responses you want to be associated with your brand. 

Use different formats to deliver your message including quotes, images, to graphics, animations, gifs, slide shows, video and even Live chats.

Mix these up with the rest of your content to Attract, Engage, Nurture and Convert your online audience.
