As a Konnect PR intern for both the Food & Beverage and the Baby & Children divisions I am granted the fabulous opportunity to work with a wide array of wonderful clients. Through this experience, thus far, I have realized that there is a lot to celebrate! First, I celebrate, of course, that I am fortunate enough to be an intern and that I have the chance to learn from rock-star KPR publicists and interact with phenomenal clients. Secondly, there are SO many holidays. Yes, there are widely celebrated holidays such as Thanksgiving, Christmas, Valentine’s Day, etc. However, there are also numerous wacky holidays that you might see pop-up on your social media feeds or on the news that provide the occasion to get creative at a public relations agency. These holidays can absolutely create interesting and fun pitching opportunities to position your client within the festivities.
Here are some examples of what I am talking about (Disclaimer: All real holidays!):
- Clean Your Refrigerator Day
- National Simplify Your Life Week
- Thank a Mailman Day
- National Bike to Work Day
- National Good Neighbor Day
Hope these unique holidays help to kick-start your creativity to come up with original and fun ideas for ways your clients can celebrate all year long!
