Looking to kickstart your social media in 2021?

After a very unusual 2020, we can all breathe a sigh of relief that 2021 is nearly here!

Sure 2020 has been a write off, but we’re starting fresh! And what better way to get a head start on your 2021 social media strategy than with the Harrison Carloss marketing calendar – jam packed with all of the events (hopefully!) happening in the UK next year, including quite a few that have been rescheduled from 2020.

Start thinking of exciting and creative ways to celebrate 2021, and create a basis for your marketing and social media strategy for the year!
