This calendar shows the dates for public holidays for Australia and Malaysia, key sales periods, and affiliate industry events.
An affiliate marketing calendar has all the key marketing dates for the year to help retailers and affiliates plan their marketing strategy well in advance. It includes major national and international holidays, sales periods, and celebration days to drive engagement and sales through content and promotions.
Commission Factory has put together these key dates in the 2024 Affiliate Marketing Calendar, so you'll never miss an important event or sales period in 2024. Here is a month-by-month overview of what to expect:
Consumers will be eager to spend their end-of-the-year Christmas gift vouchers and money, so it's a good month for sellers and shoppers. Consider dates like New Year's Day and Chinese New Year to create hype and engagement.
Love is in the air in February, as demand for chocolates, flowers, and romantic getaways are expected to rise on Valentine's Day.
A month of remembrance, respect, and celebrations - March brings about essential dates for social media, such as International Women's Day and the start of Ramadan.
