Five Links on Friday: Festive Fun

By Posted in - Five Links On Friday on December 9th, 2016 0 Comments

It’s Christmas party season and we’re feeling festive at Pickle Jar HQ. We’re sporting our festive knitwear, the Christmas tunes are on full-blast and we’ve been writing Christmas cards to all our fantastic clients from the past year. We’re having our office Christmas party this evening where we’ll be celebrating another successful year. If you have your office Christmas party this weekend, have fun (and don’t do anything we wouldn’t do!).

Just 37% of B2B marketers & 40% of B2C marketers have a written #contentmarketing plan, and research shows that marketers who document their strategy are much more likely to accomplish their content marketing goals and be successful. The Content Marketing Institute tells us why and how you should go about it.

Have you been creating festive Christmas content for your social channels? Here’s our round-up of last year’s fun and festive content and we’ll be looking out for examples from other institutions for this years round-up! Tweet us and tell us what you’ve been up to!

And just because we’re feeling festive, here’s a picture of our part-time office dog Dusty who helped put out Christmas tree up last week!

As we swig our prosecco tonight, we’ll try and forget we have two more weeks of work left until the big day.
