We all get a little stuck for content ideas every now and then. After all, we can’t all be genius content creating machines for 24 hours of the day (despite what your managers might think).

A great way to fill up your content calendar, and maybe get a little more exposure than normal (damn you tricky algorithms) is to hop on some trending events to give your business a voice on the latest buzz about the web.

Now, we can’t tell you who’s going to win the next World Cup, or whatever drama is yet to happen in the world of politics (hasn't there been enough?), but we can give you the scoop when it comes to holidays and key events in 2020.

Keep on top of upcoming events from National Talk like a Pirate Day (September 19th), to International Coffee Day (Everyday! Just kidding, it’s October 1st).

Nail that tweet in advance, schedule social media content to publish at the optimum time and date, and voila - you’ve successfully jumped on a trend without the usual ‘gotta get a tweet out asap’ stress.

Sounds like the dream doesn’t it?
