Marketing Calendar 2022

Marketing Calendar 2022

With this 2022 calendar for marketing and shopping events you can plan your activities well in advance, whether you are a retailer, small business, or a marketing agency working with a range of clients.

Don’t fight for attention over the more popular holidays — make your promotions stand out by offering discounts on unusual (or made up) holidays. People were 2x more likely to click promotions in an email if they were centered around a special day — and they were 25% more likely to buy. For best results pick a day that’s original, unused by your competition, and on-brand. So choose an existing niche holiday and build a story around it. Get creative and make it fun. Offer a discount and promote it.

Happy email marketing and don’t forget to share these resources with your colleagues and network.
