By Ben Kaplan, CEO @ TOP Agency

The Power of Calendar Based Marketing

How to create timely moments that drive action

Calendar-based marketing created the biggest day of commerce in the history of the world — with Chinese retailer Alibaba selling more than $74 billion during a single 24-hour period in 2020.

But Asian companies aren't the only one enjoying huge successes with calendar-based marketing. There are countless examples of companies successfully leveraging this method — from Amazon and American Express to niche mom and pop businesses — to amplify their sales numbers.

So how are they doing it? What can you learn from them about how to drive immediate consumer action for your product, service, brand, or store?

In this webinar, TOP Global and National Today CEO Ben Kaplan will take a deep dive into the inner workings of calendar-based marketing — including the foundational viral triggers that create a sense of urgency, scarcity, and a flood of social proof.

How do you take your traditional call-to-action (CTA) and transform it into a viral call-to-action (vCTA) that is 10X more effective?

Whether you're a performance marketer looking to improve your conversion rates, a social media professional looking to increase engagement with your brand, or a content marketer looking for new pathways to connect with your audience, calendar-based marketing is a necessity for your marketing toolkit.

Drawing upon insights from PR, social media, content marketing, influencer marketing, and growth-hacking tactics, Ben's presentation will cover:
