Key Tasks For This Week:
Ready for the big launch?
Our algorithms are constantly tracking what days people are referencing for tomorrow. Keep checking our 'National Days Tomorrow' page, which is refreshed every hour, hopefully you'll be able to get on here at some point throughout the day.
Things are kicking off
National Hugging Day may have already started in some countries.
We use the Coordinated Universal Time (UTC) and so typically we'll see people in Europe talking about Hugging a few hours before the US starts to wake up. Don't forget about these people too as the first few tweets sent are key for visibility and the liklihood that a day will be shared widely.
Identify the key influencers and engage in the conversation :D
