Now is also an eggcellent time to start preparing Easter contents. Make sure they’re uploaded and ready by March or April. This is because both months show the biggest jump in searches and downloads regarding Easter contents. As much as tripling the amount from February! Knowing this, it’s an opportunity that you definitely wouldn’t want to miss.

In our data analysis we can see that Easter eggs steal the spotlight for being the most popular content here, it could be in a flat lay, it could be accompanied by spring flowers or fresh grass, covered in beautifully painted patterns and don’t forget to add the iconic Easter bunny too.
(earth, earth day, world, globe)
