A digital content calendar: Key dates in the PR industry for content planning

    There are over 30,700 ResponseSource requests sent in a year and many of them centre around key dates in every journalist and content marketer’s calendar.

    Events in the calendar like this create natural opportunities to get your products or services seen, with gift guides and features being published daily. The holiday season contributes up to $843.4 billion for businesses and we want you to capitalise on it.

    With this in mind, we have analysed ResponseSource enquiry data to put together a white paper for the key dates in any PR calendar. By analysing numerous existing ‘content calendars’ and ResponseSource enquiry numbers, Impression has collated the most popular journalist holidays to create a textbook guide for quick wins. This white paper includes:

    • How will a digital PR calendar help your content planning?
