Your Social Media Calendar: June 2016
It’s been a couple of months since we did one of these posts but we’re back again to help you plan your business’s social media post – this time for June. Can you believe we’re nearly half way through 2016? We can’t.
If you haven’t seen our social media calendar blogs before we create them with the aim of helping and inspiring your small businesses’ social media posts.
Through our own experience supporting businesses’ internet marketing strategies we know that social media isn’t often at the top of the list of priorities for small businesses, with some leaving only 15 minutes or so a week to social media marketing, or signing in as and when they can.
If this sounds like you and your business you have probably faced the dilemma of what to post. It can be challenging to think up of something to post every day (other than a link to your website) especially if you only have 15 minutes to spare in between meetings or tasks.
SOCIAL MEDIA POST IDEAS FOR SMALL BUSINESSES: JUNE 2016
National holidays and awareness days are a great way for your social media channels to remain current and as many often have their own associated hashtags, can be a great way to drive exposure and engagement to your channels. If you have a bit more time (or are a bit clever) you may even be able to link national events to your company, products or services.
By incorporating these events into your feed you will keep your social media current (even if you schedule it!) and break up your promotional posts.
JUNE EVENTS YOU CAN USE IN YOUR BUSINESS’S MARKETING / SOCIAL MEDIA STRATEGY
June marks the beginning of Summer, bringing brighter evenings and holidays. Many people are thinking about holiday planning and preparation. Google reported that 30% of affluent travelers book last-minute trips from mobile devices, is this something you could tap into? Get in the holiday spirit with… style posts might be a good way to engage customers.
Consider what events and topics people search for around this time. The terms “baggage” and “music festivals” experiences a peak every Summer is this something you could use for blog post ideas?
