How to Use July Holidays in Social Media Marketing
If you’re worried about finding something to post for all of these obscure holidays, don’t! In fact, you shouldn’t plan your entire social media content calendar around holidays. Go through July’s social media holidays and make note of especially prominent ones or days that will matter to your audience.
Does your resort have a waterpark? National Waterpark Day on July 28 might be a great day to mention something about that on your Facebook.
Did you host a family influencer lately? National Parents’ Day could be a good tie-in.
International Friends Day is a great day to shout out your fellow business friends (and partners), or share travel tips for girls’ getaways!
The opportunities are endless, but whenever you’re looking for holidays to include in your content planning, make sure to keep it relevant to your audience and specific to your business!
