Sorry that this is starting midway through January, but thought we could combat Blue Monday with a bit of Marketing Inspiration!  Here are some marketing ideas for you for the rest of January.

15th Blue Monday
Supposedly the most depressing day of the year. Share humour, sales and inspirational quotes to cheer people up or organise a party to beat the blues!

18th Peoples Choice Awards

20th  Penguin Awareness Day
Share info about these natives of Antarctica. Have a black and white theme to your marketing, or wear black and white (maybe even a tux!) to work. Share a penguin joke or two.

25th Opposite Day
A topsy, turvy day when everything you say, do, see, and hear are the opposite. If you say go left, you mean go right. Popular with school kids (Sponge Bob Square Pants did an entire episode on it and it’s mentioned in Alice in Wonderland) you could have some fun with marketing (or even a flash sale 51% instead of 15% off!)

31st Inspire Your Heart With Art Day
Celebrating art and the effect it can have on your heart.  A great time to appreciate local artists or run a relevant competition. Have an employees art show!

Marvellous Marketing…

L’Oreal offered classy Golden Globes inspired styling tutorials during the awards show and included some handy GIFs to illustrate the steps to create the look.

They shared the tutorials across social media taking advantage of the #GoldenGlobes buzz.
