Checklist Day: A Marketing Opportunity for Business Leaders and Entrepreneurs
October 30th is Checklist Day, and it's a great opportunity for business leaders and entrepreneurs to market and grow their businesses. In this blog post, we share how you can use Checklist Day to create and share checklists, host webinars or workshops, offer discounts or promotions, and partner with other businesses to reach your target audience and achieve your business goals. We also share some specific tips and resources from The Industry Leader, a leading provider of web design, social media management, email marketing, and 1:1 consultation services.
National Publicist Day is celebrated annually on October 30th. It was founded in 2015 by Jordanna Stephen, owner and principal of Just Good PR, to recognize and appreciate the hard work and dedication of public relations professionals.
The date of October 30th was chosen because it is the anniversary of the first press release ever written by Ivy Lee, considered to be the father of modern public relations. On October 30, 1906, Lee issued a press release on behalf of his client, the Pennsylvania Railroad, in response to a tragic train accident. The press release was widely published, and it helped to improve the railroad's public image.
Today, National Publicist Day is celebrated by publicists and their clients all over the world. Some common ways to celebrate the day include:
Sending thank-you notes to publicists
Hosting or attending events to honour publicists
Sharing stories and anecdotes about publicists on social media
Using the hashtag #NationalPublicistDay to raise awareness of the holiday
Publicists play a vital role in our society. They help us to understand the news and information that we consume, and they shape the public's perception of businesses, brands, and celebrities. On National Publicist Day, let's take a moment to appreciate all that they do.
