National Cupcake Day, National Pizza Day, National Take a Nap Day…if you’re on social media, you’ve likely noticed these “hashtag holidays” popping up in your feeds on a regular basis. But, did you know you can leverage these days to create effective influencer marketing campaigns?

Recently, Einstein Bros. partnered with Sway Group to launch a social media-based #NationalBagelDay campaign to drive awareness to their National Bagel Day deals. They knew the value of centering a campaign around the holiday, and Sway Group was able to deliver impressive results, thanks to our highly-engaged influencer network.

“National day” hashtags are extremely popular, with most trending on Twitter and Facebook nationally for a good part of the day, giving any topic an extra boost. By using #NationalBagelDay in their social media amplification, Einstein Bros. was able to expand their reach exponentially and take advantage of the natural virality of the hashtag.
