LET’S CELEBRATE THE TRUE MONTH OF SUMMER
July is the only month that we can claim as REAL SUMMER! Summer starts late in June and by the time August rolls around, we are already talking Back to School. Share all the wonderful days and events that July has to offer with our monthly and daily JULY Calendar topics.
WHAT’S NEW THIS WEEK
Let’s face it, Online Marketing is not going away anytime soon. In fact in the next 4 years, it’s projected to grow even more. Being in the know of Industry Trends is vital for your Authority and for the Perception of your Followers. Integrate these #Hashtags into your Social Media strategies and watch your Engagement Rise.
GET IN ON THE TREND WITH STICKERS!
Snapchat popularized placing wacky stickers on your photos. Now, Twitter is jumping on the bandwagon with a sticker collection with Social Media clout – their Stickers are as effective as Hashtags. It’s only fitting PromoRepublic be at the Top of this Trend by offering you a group of Summer Icons you can use on all your posts! Show your followers you are IN THE KNOW! Find them in the Objects section of our website.
HOME IS WHERE THE HEART IS…
Whether you are in the Home Industry or not, everyone lives in some form of dwelling. The majority of your followers have a piece of furniture, have painted something, have had to renovate or repair so any posts about this topic will garner interest. Guaranteed!
START YOUR ENGINES & REV UP YOUR SOCIAL MEDIA
There are 214 million licensed drivers in the U.S. It’s clear that a Social Media post about car maintenance, interesting fact, quote or helpful hint will appeal to a large segment of your followers.
THE BATTLE OF GADGETS MAKES FOR ENTICING MARKETING
Another staple in our everyday lives are electronics – smartphones, tablets, laptops, mp3’s, and the list goes on. The pure fact that your follower is on Social Media is proof enough that they will be interested in any content you post.
TOP WEEKLY EVENTS
JULY 11 – ALL AMERICAN PET PHOTO DAY
Everyone adores their pets and loves sharing their photos online. Why not give them an incentive to upload their pics by creating a contest with a chance to win a gift card or a discount. No matter what, your fans will rejoice in showing off their “best friends” to the world.
JULY 13 – NATIONAL FRENCH FRY DAY
The French Fry may have come from France but we have taken it to another level! Today is a good day for restaurants and bars to offer specials. But, any industry can celebrate this day with their followers because we all love French Fries!
JULY 14 – SHARK AWARENESS DAY
As of late, we’ve been hearing about more shark sightings in shallow waters instilling fear in all beach-goers but really there have been only 6 fatalities in the past 6 years. The statistics we need to pay attention to is the 273 million sharks that are being killed worldwide in turn affecting the health of our ecosystem. Show your support of the Sharks!
JULY 16 – AMAZON FUN FACT
Our beloved book seller (who has transformed themselves into a Mega Online One-Stop Shop) started in a garage. On this day, they sold their first book. Why is it significant? Most marketers sell their e-books via Amazon. And we’re pretty sure your followers sell or buy from them.
JULY 17 – NATIONAL ICE CREAM DAY
No introduction needed! We eat about 20 quarts of ice cream a year leading the world in the highest per capita consumption. Celebrate this day with your fans – it will surely put a smile on their faces! Oh and guess what the top selling flavor is? Yup, still Vanilla! 😉
