Posted 10 months ago by Skimlinks

The average publisher on Skimlinks doubles their commerce content revenue in the holiday season. Commerce editors have more to write about than just Black Friday and Christmas.

Here is a selection of public holidays and events that can inspire publishers to write for their audiences in Europe and the UK. Publishers may decide to write their articles several months in advance to get better SEO traction or simply because consumers are shopping early.
