Welcome to this belated March hot topic list! This list contains hot topics for the month that could do very well on social sites, and seeing that it is about a week later than usual, it is a great reason to get working on these today! Ideally you could use this to help aid in linkbait and content creation for social media. Hopefully these ideas can help you harness the momentum of a current hot topic and get more traction. Here’s what will be hot this March in social media!
- March Madness
This is hands down the biggest event of the month. Productivity drops across the country when the NCAA tournament is on. CBS has been streaming all games live over the web and there are so many angles to take with your linkbait on this topic.
- The Pacific
Tom Hanks is producing this HBO WWII miniseries that premieres Sunday March 14th. This is a great opportunity to tie in with WWII linkbait, timelines, history and anything that is educational about WWII and “The Pacific” series.
- Hot Tub Time Machine
A new movie that is in theatres on March 26th is called “Hot Tub Time Machine” and features some crazed party animals in an absurd premise. The film features John Cusack, Craig Robinson and other cult stars like Chevy Chase. There are many topics that can be related to this movie like” Worst Ideas for a Movie” “Stupidest Movie Premises [Where the Movie was Actually Good]“ “Time Machines in Movies – The Master Guide” .. the possibilities are endless.
March is the month where snow-dwellers see a glimpse of hope for better weather to come. Dropping Spring related linkbait will be quite timely and well-received by users. Putting facts and information on the wonderfully melty world of Spring is sure to perform well!
- NFL Free Agency
Free agency just began, and there is a world of content that will appeal to NFL fanatics across the country. Breaking down the best/worst moves , ideal matches for free agents still available are prime topics for social users. Report cards, breakdowns and the winners/losers are always great angles to take.
- Brackets & Gambling In General
These days it is hard to find an office without a NCAA bracket pool. This is by far the largest gambling event of the year in America. Last year even President Obama filled out his bracket. Any analysis of gambling that ties in brackets will perform extremely well. Also, stats around brackets, previous winners, best ways to choose ..etc will be hot topics in March.
If there ever was a time that people would be receptive to tax information, March is that time! Show how much people pay, the average return, how to save $$ and other tips and tricks as people definitely have taxes on their minds this month.
On the heels of the Canada/US game, people are paying attention to hockey again. Creating interesting lists that play off of Olympic athletes should be well received this month. Comparing Crosby to Gretzky, breaking down the best goaltending of the season, doing follow-up on how the Americans NHL teams fared vs the Canadians teams – there are many possibilities to revisit this formerly frozen topic.
Happy March linkbaiting!
