It’s that time again… what’s coming up in the world of Digital PR next week.

From house price indexes to the UK labour report, here’s how you can utilise upcoming opportunities to your best advantage.

BURNS NIGHT 2021, 25TH JANUARY

Burns Night is annually celebrated on January 25th, especially in Scotland. It commemorates the life and work of poet Robert Burns.

This is a fantastic PR opportunity for anyone in the food sector to comment and provide information on a Burns night supper. Perhaps on how to create a Burns supper at home?

UK LABOUR MARKET, 26thJANUARY

The Office of National Statistics (ONS) releases its monthly UK Labour Market report for January 2021.

This report gives estimates of employment, unemployment, economic inactivity and other employment-related statistics for the UK.

It’s a great reactive opportunity for PRs in the finance, education, employment and business industries, as well as the industries mentioned in the report.

You will find the report released Tuesday 7am here.

NATIONWIDE HOUSE PRICE INDEX, 29TH JANUARY

Nationwide releases its MoM and YoY House Price Index on Friday 29th January, for December 2020.

The index measures the change in the selling price of homes with mortgages backed by Nationwide. Its key to note that a reading that is stronger than forecast is generally supportive for the GBP, whereas a weaker than forecase reading is negative for the GBP.

It’s a great PR reactive opportunity for those in the home, property, and finance sectors. Currently house prices have hit a record high, so it will be interesting to see what Nationwide have to say about the figures and how this difers from last years figures.

You will find the report on Friday here.

Hopefully, you’ll find this helpful when planning some of your content for the week ahead. Want to learn more about our PR work? Head over to our PR page here.
