  3. 3. Discover. Distribute. Delight World Cancer Day- 4th Feb With 3 people dying of Cancer every minute in India, and around 1.23 Million new cases each year, the need to talk about cancer has never been greater. Celebrated on 4th Feb every year, World Cancer Day is always a very talked about event on Social Media. The theme from 20116-18 is “We can, I can” to highlight how everyone – as a collective or as individuals – can do their part to reduce the global burden of cancer. Content like “Top 10 facts about Cancer”, “How to detect Breast Cancer”, “Research says you’re going to get Cancer soon- how you can prevent it”, and “Do you know enough about the types of Cancer?” and “How to help Cancer patients” will be impactful. http://www.worldcancerday.org/
  4. 4. Discover. Distribute. Delight Heart Month Every day in India, over 900 people under 30 succumb to Heart Disease. It is also the no 1 killer of women in India.

Marketers in different time zones, countries, industries, etc., can find their own way to make a mark, with a heavy use of graphics, quotes, statistics and of course, emotion.
  5. 5. Discover. Distribute. DelightDiscover. Distribute. Delight International Day of Women and Girls in Science- 11th Feb Last December, the United Nations Member States adopted a resolution to establish an annual International Day to recognize the critical role women and girls play in science and technology communities. Brands can use this day to pledge support for gender equality, promote their women-oriented CSR efforts, and even invite donations and/or volunteers online. Content around “The 10 Most Important Scientific Discoveries by Women”, “The number of women in Science isn’t increasing fast enough” and “What you can do to help more girls enter the field of science” could be powerful.
  6. 6. Discover. Distribute. DelightDiscover. Distribute. Delight World Radio Day- 13th Feb World Radio Day on 13th Feb, is a time to rehear and relive some of the greatest moments of radio that helped make long car drives and family vacations the cherished memories. Plus, with most large brands doing a large chunk of their advertising on the Radio it’s a time to be meta! Content around the funniest moments in Radio, the most controversial/loved ads, and a celebration of the Radio Jockeys who created a buzz, will all be well consumed.
  7. 7. Discover. Distribute. DelightDiscover. Distribute. Delight Valentine’s Day- 14th Feb Considered as the most romantic and passionate day of the year, Valentine’s Day is a time for lovers across the country to shower each other with love and gifts. Brands can leverage this by positioning their products/services as “ideal Valentine’s Day gifts”- couples’ massages, romantic getaways, restaurant outings, décor, gadgets, etc. The theme of the day is Love, and brands often attempt to anthropomorphise their products into romantic interests through humorous content such as, “10 things we love more than our SO (significant other)”, “The best gifts for your girlfriend she won’t want to return” or “15 things that can be your valentine if you can’t find a human”.

After 4 long year, 2016 is a leap year, and February has a 29th day, which gives humanity 24 hours more to do their thing. Brands can use this day to do absolutely anything they want. Launch new products, announce a competition for “who spent their day the best”, publicise merchandise featuring quotes like “carpe diem” and “finally, I can celebrate my birthday”, and create some laughs and some memories for their fans. There should be a heavy use of graphics, comics and visual content, as that is the most heavily shared. Oh, and keep in mind that the movie Leap Year will also be widely searched.
