Men’s Health Month
For Men’s Health Month, post tips specific to the fellas. Post on a Monday and incorporate one of the most popular hashtags #ManCrushMonday to up the repost factor!
Great Outdoors Month
To celebrate nature and invite some interaction with your Facebook followers, post some of the best places around your state to get outside and experience nature in and ask your followers to share their favorite spots and activities too.
If you happen to offer products/services that could be dangerous if not properly trained or monitored, this is the perfect opportunity to post safety tips throughout the month pertaining to your business. Also, with the warm weather officially upon us, kids will be taking to the streets and the pool. Consider posting some safety standards that everyone, not just your customers, could benefit from.
Doughnut Day – June 1st
It’s finally here – Doughnut Day! Hold an event in celebration of this tasty holiday or simply have some donuts and coffee on the ready for your early bird customers.
Or offer up some doughnut facts as silly as the holiday itself. Social media is supposed to be fun and bright images with shareable content may help secure you some shares.
Repeat Day – June 3rd
Today offers an opportunity for you to recycle past promotions that were hugely successful in celebration of #RepeatDay. Or harken back to your very first Facebook post.
Cancer Survivor’s Day – June 3rd
Practically everyone has been affected by cancer or knows someone who has so Cancer Survivor’s Day is a big one that should be recognized this month. Show some love to cancer survivors by posting inspirational articles and photos.
Best Friend Day – June 8th
There’s nothing like celebrating your bestie. Whether it’s a BFF in business or the friendly relationships amongst your staff, have fun with the friendly holiday and ask followers to tag their friends!
Nature Photography Day – June 15th
Imagery is important when it comes to social media. Take advantage of June 15th and post some drool-worthy photos of dream vacation spots or hold a contest and ask followers to tag you in their best nature pics and feature the winning photo across your social accounts.
Father’s Day – June 17th
Home Shop 18 ran a campaign where they asked their followers to list three things that bring a smile to their father’s face and awarded small prizes to their favorites. You may note that we routinely suggest ways to engage your followers on social media. That’s because the more people interact with your brand the higher their loyalty to you becomes. Utilize holidays like Father’s Day to encourage more comments and conversation.
Dads are also notoriously difficult to shop for. Offer helpful tips to your followers on what to get dad this year…
Or point people toward a landing page if you happen to have the perfect gift!
First Day of Summer – June 21st
It’s finally here – the first day of summer and that’s definitely cause for celebration – and to break out your summer fare. If you serve food and drink, create delicious confections that scream summertime!
Host a first day of summer giveaway in store and pass out summer themed items to customers or have a gift with purchase.
Take Your Dog to Work Day – June 22nd
Invite employees to bring their pooches to the office and don’t be shy about advertising their presence on Facebook. The promise of a puppy is enough motivation for people to brave the summer heat and stop by your shops.
Sunglasses Day – June 27th
