National Siblings Day
Celebrate the bond of siblinghood by inviting brothers and sisters into your shop for a sibling date! Think about running a two for one promotion or snapping pics of all the siblings that come to your shop and posting to social! This particular franchise opted for a Boomerang. Speaking of Instagram, don’t forget to check out our April Instagram Post ideas.
National Grilled Cheese Day
Holidays that celebrate our favorite foods get quite a bit of social media clout since food is something we all can bond over. For #nationalgrilledcheeseday think about ordering in for lunch and snapping a photo of your cheesy dish or take the opportunity to cross-promote with another local business like they did.
As the deadline for filing your taxes is looming, try to make light of it! Perhaps you post useful tips for tax season or if you’re lucky enough to have a product or service that coincides with the almighty dollar, use it to your advantage!
Get to Know Your Customer Day
Get to Know Your Customer Day is a great opportunity for interacting with your customers. Post questions on Facebook that engage them in a conversation. Ask for their opinions to help improve your services, what they like about your business, etc. For more tips on social media posting, check out our post How to Improve Your Social Media Posts.
High Five Day
High Five Day leaves a lot of room for some good clean fun. We love the idea of asking customers to high five your staff for photo ops to post on social that they’re likely to share if you ask their permission to tag them. Up your Facebook following by inviting customers to tag people they’d like to give a virtual high five.
Or give your own virtual high five as a thank you or special shout out to customers, vendors or even a cause you support.
If you’re up for it, think about running a promo that coincides with the number five…it doesn’t all have to be about a literal high five!
Denim Day is associated with one of the causes for the month of April, Sexual Assault Awareness. Take a break from self-promotion and educate your followers on the history of the holiday.
Or show your support for victims of sexual assault by asking employees to wear denim to work on this day.
Speaking of the awareness causes for this month… It’s Prom Season! Virtually every type of business can figure out a post to tap into the prom season frenzy. This restaurant is cashing in on the popularity of “promposals”.
Think about posting something useful for parents who may be concerned about the goings on of prom night…providing helpful information is appreciated by your followers – no one wants to be sold to 24/7.
If you happen to have an offering that is right in line with prom season, don’t be shy about promoting yourself either.
National Child Abuse Prevention Month
Show your support for National Child Abuse Prevention Month by posting a blue pinwheel gif which is the national symbol for the cause.
Or plant a pinwheel garden at your place of business and share it with your followers in hopes of raising awareness.
