An affiliate marketing calendar has all the key marketing dates for the year to help retailers and affiliates plan their marketing strategy well in advance. It includes major national and international holidays, sales periods, and celebration days to drive engagement and sales through content and promotions.

Commission Factory has put together these key dates in the 2023 Affiliate Marketing Calendar, so you'll never miss an important event in 2023. Here is a month-by-month overview of what to expect:

January

Consumers will be eager to spend their end-of-the-year Christmas gift vouchers and money, so it's a good month for sellers and shoppers. Consider dates like New Year's Day and Chinese New Year to create hype and engagement.

February

Love is in the air in February, as demand for chocolates, flowers, and romantic getaways are expected to rise on Valentine's Day.

March

A month of remembrance, respect, and celebrations - March brings about essential dates for social media, such as International Women's Day and the start of Ramadan.

April

Consider increasing your retail efforts at the start of the second quarter – with Easter celebrations coming up this month!

May

Mid-year sales beings! Brands can also look forward to Mother's Day to create promotional events for mothers.

June

Singapore officially enters the Great Singapore Sale shopping season. Meanwhile, the colder month in Australia prompts further mid-season sales.

July

Although July may seem like a slower month for promotions, brands and affiliates should consider planning for the busy seasons ahead and stocking up on products.

August

Retailers targetting Malaysian shoppers can take advantage of its Independence or Merdeka Day. Alternatively, it's another great month to grow your email list in preparation for the upcoming months.

September

eCommerce retailers in Malaysia and Asia can look forward to events like the Super Shopping Sale and MyCyberSale to create promotional efforts and events.

October

The spooky season is here! Halloween is a great time to get creative with content and generate promotional bundles and discounts.

November

The busy period officially starts with must-know dates such as Singles' Day, Black Friday, and Cyber Monday. Consumers are exceptionally active this month, so it's an excellent time to capitalise on the leads accumulated over the previous months.

December

The year is officially ending, but the sale isn't! With Christmas and Boxing Day coming, it's a good time to give it a last push for sales in the year.
