Daily Holidays: Social Media Content Ideas for June
Promoting your products/services on social media is an essential part of your marketing strategy, but we all know that your customers are wise and consumer savvy and too many sales can actually deter them from your shop or online store. Here are some meaningful and outright fun holidays to implement in your social posts for June.
National Cancer Survivors Day
June 2 marks this celebratory holiday honoring all the women and men who faced the challenges of this disease and came out victorious in the end. For most, it was a battle and they deserve this day to rejoice. Share the love with your followers. A business that cares is a business that wins customer loyalty.
Leave the Office Early Day
While this is a fun holiday for all the employees, keen to take advantage. This could be an ideal time for all the marketers or coaches to post templates on, ‘how to be more productive’ or tips on ‘how to leave early every day.’ Thinking outside the box is what we do best here at PromoRepublic.
National Repeat Day
This is a great day to post a sales-y sentence that perhaps you can ask your customers to repeat to you today for a discount or a smile! Be as creative as you want to be – after all, this is your business’ Facebook or Instagram pages.
National Cheese Day
Attention all restaurants/cafés/caterers! Today is a good day to come up with a new recipe with cheese in it. Or better yet, give a discount to your loyal customers on everything and anything with cheese on your menus.
National Running Day
Do any of these reasons comply with your business? If so, we suggest using it to your advantage. Can you add another reason to the list that is relevant to your products/services? Well, go on then – get creative! Encouraging physical activity is never a bad thing!
National Yo-Yo Day
Calling all Star War aficionados, this post will warm their hearts! No need to be a fan to love this post either – it’s meant to be light and fun. If you happen to sell toys and yo-yo’s in particular, well we don’t need to advise you on taking advantage of this up and down holiday.
National Chocolate Ice-Cream Day
I scream, you scream, we all scream for Ice Cream! This is a no-brainer of a post. A June Facebook post without ice cream, well, that doesn’t even make any sense! That’s just crazy talk. Ice cream is synonymous with summer. You don’t sell ice cream? No worries. Do you sell clothes in the colors of this popular treat? Are you a nutritionist? Well then share a healthy version of this recipe. You see where we are going, right?
National VCR Day
Appeal to all your 80s folk and don’t be fooled because there are many on social media. Engage them with questions: ask them what their favorite movies were back then? Ask them to post funny moments from way back when caught on video!
National Donut Day
Donut, Doughnut – it doesn’t matter how you spell it, so long as it gets in my tummy. It’s still a beloved treat for young and old. Free donuts can go a long way today for your business! If your followers are more like health nuts – share a donut recipe high in nutritional value. They do exist, we think, probably!
World Bike Naked Day
This is actually a day that’s taken seriously all over the world. If you have a following that is open-minded – you can ask them to post funny posts with them on bikes (of course, nudity is not allowed on all platforms!). If you sell bikes, you can play with this holiday to your advantage!
National Donald Duck Day
Reach out to your Disney fans! Today we celebrate our favorite duck! He’s been around for years and he still brings a smile to many faces. Please, no duck recipes on this day – it may cause an adverse reaction among your followers. Post some quotes or funny memes about him and his silly ways.
National Children’s Day
Today we honor our tiny tots. This day is an awesome day to post a list of activities that your followers can take advantage of to enjoy with their kids. Pinterest is an especially good platform for ideas. If you are a retailer, we urge you to share all your promos with all children related products. If you are in the service industry – same, same!
National Iced Tea Day
We said earlier that ice cream was synonymous with Summer. Well, this drink is high up on the list as well. Nothing better than a refreshing ice tea on a warm day in June. Share your family recipes. Ask your followers to share theirs too. Get the conversation going and maybe they’ll forget how hot the scorching sun really is.
National Making Life Beautiful Day
Filled with positive energy, this is a magnificent holiday to lift your follower’s spirits. How do you think you can make their life beautiful? Is it by offering a special deal, is it a gift, is it free advice or maybe just a smile from your employees? Whatever little thing you do will be a step in the right direction for your business.
National Corn on the Cob Day
Yet another Summertime staple – Corn is one of our summertime fave foods to nibble on. Educate your customers with fun nutritional facts, recipes or health benefits.
Today you can talk about our favorite superhero or you can praise one of the heroes in your business: your employee of the week or best supplier/vendor or maybe your hero is a customer.
Men’s Mental Health Awareness Day
The goal of this day is to raise awareness of health issues that affect men every day. Encourage your men to exercise, eat right and go to the doctor. Showing them you care about their health can go a long way in loyalty to your brand.
Cupcake Lovers Day
Today is a perfect day to indulge in your favorite treat. Ask your followers which ones are their faves – is it red velvet, chocolate, or carrot cake? There are so many varieties now – it will be fun to read what they love! If you are a bakery – this can be a perfect marketing survey for you. Create a free cupcake for them as a sales incentive. Are you an online shop? Give them a cupcake emoji that equates to a 10% discount, perhaps.
World Blood Donor Day
This is a call to action to raise awareness of the need for blood donors in the world. Every day there is an emergency somewhere – sometimes it’s life or death. How nice would it be if these people would have the chance at life because of us? Keeping our clients and followers aware of this is our way of giving many a chance at life.
Did you know that according to etiquette, American flags are to be illuminated by sunlight or another light source while on display? Share some fun facts about their flag on this day. Ask them to upload pics of their flags! It’s a day to rejoice and be proud to be an American!
Today your follower’s are celebrating their Dads, so let’s make sure that all your promotions are in place and your Happy Father’s Day images on Facebook are on par. We recommend posting quotes or fun facts about fathers on this day. Keep it light-hearted, since you’ve spent the past month promoting your products/services for this special day, right?
Autism Pride Day
With more and more kids being diagnosed daily with autism, it’s in our best interest to break down the stigma of this ‘disorder.’ As a business, if you celebrate parents’ autistic children – we guarantee eternal loyalty to your company.
International Picnic Day
Restaurants, cafés, bakeries, grocers, home stores – this day is for you! Encourage your followers to have a picnic with their friends and family. Persuade them to use your products or services – highlight the foods that make sense for an outdoor gathering. Give them ideas with cool recipes or fun activities.
World Refugee Day
With so many global citizens being forced to leave their homelands because of war and strife. We need to come together as a social media community and show our support with our words of encouragement. If there are local organizations standing up for refugee rights, then, by all means, raise money for them through your business. They are citizens of the world too.
World Productivity Day
Businesses all around the world celebrate this day. If you are a marketer, business coach or consultant, this is the day to share productivity tips to your followers. Teaching them how to save time in the day is always helpful especially with our busy lives. Go on and educate them with your smarts!
Stupid Guy Thing Day
Poking fun at your male followers is pure FUN, but if you feel like you will offend them, we suggest you hold off on this template. If you have a mostly female customer base, we are certain they will love this post! Depending on your target groups – memes and funny images like this can be beneficial.
National Kissing Day
Spread the love today with kisses and discounts! Lol! Seriously, we all kiss our partners or friends (well maybe just a peck for them!), these fun facts will keep them smiling and maybe doing too.
Let It Go Day
Encourage your followers to “let it all go” today! If it’s work stress that they need to let go, so be it. If it’s worry, so be it. If it’s pressures of everyday life, so be it. Give them ideas on how this can be done – perhaps they need to buy your product to relieve these negative feelings. Maybe they need to book an appointment for their hair or nails.
National Pink Day
Today is not only anti-bullying day but it is also a day to celebrate all that is PINK. Yes. We are serious. Our advice to you is to promote the purchase of pink today whilst raising a percentage for this cause – a 2 in 1 if you wish. Showcase all the pink in your shops and bakeries, etc… And make a difference!
Celebration of the Senses Day
Taste, smell, sight, touch, and scent. Does your business have a product/service related to any of these senses? We’ll assume your answer was yes. So go on and create a social media post on this. For example; you’re a florist, so sight and smell are your senses! Encourage your clients to describe their favorite flowers and words to express the fragrances.
Color TV Day
Fun Fact: the color revolution hit televisions in the mid-1960s. Although it was first invented in 1954. It took a few years for people to accept this new invention into their homes. This is a good engaging post for all your Gen Xers and Baby Boomers. Ask them questions about their fave tv shows of the past. Have fun!
Please Take My Children to Work Day
This holiday was first created for all you stay-at-home moms who needed a break from their kids! Nowadays it’s been extended to even working moms and dads who need some time away from their unruly kids. For all the spas and beauty shops, this day is a good day to offer promotions to these hard workers!
Another fun holiday poking fun at all the wrong-doers! Do you have enough courage as a business owner to post all the errors that your customers make related to your business? It could be a wake-up call for some! But mostly it’s a reason to have a little fun.
National PTSD Awareness Day
There are many reasons that you may suffer from PTSD – whether it’s war-related, or from personal trauma. More followers suffer from this disease than we are aware of… Let them know that you’re fully supportive in raising awareness for the treatment of this agonizing disease.
National Sunglasses Day
If you sell sunglasses, then this day is your day! If you don’t, today is also a good day to share tips on how to protect your body from the sun. We are one week into Summer and your customers probably need reminding. Do a good deed and spread the summertime love.
International Body Piercing Day
With more and more people getting body piercings and tattoos, it’s no longer taboo. Welcome to 2019 folks! Ask your followers to upload some of their piercings to inspire others.
National Camera Day
You don’t need to only appeal to all the photographers out there because everyone is a photographer these days with Instagram and SnapChat. Get your customers to upload pics wearing or holding your product. Give a gift or discount for the winner!
