Days to Celebrate in Q2 2021

business resources Mar 24, 2021

Spring is in the air, and with the change in seasons comes a new batch of days to celebrate for Q2. 

While you are creating your content calendar for Q2, whether using the one inside the Lean Out Planner or your own, here are some fun events, days to celebrate, and national holidays to inspire your content. 

Choose a few days that relate to your business, and get creative planning for them.  It could be something as simple as a social media post, or something you create an entire campaign around. You could plan to create photos that fit with the theme, or head over to Unsplash and find the perfect photo.

For example, let's say that you are a health coach who frequently talks about the importance of healthy eating and regular exercise. You could plan social media content, photos, and posts around National Walking Day, National Fitness Day, National Eat Your Vegetables Day and National Hydration Day (plus others).

You could take it one step further and plan an entire campaign around National Fitness Day.  Engage your community and customers in a fitness contest with a reward that supports them in eating healthier or exercising more frequently like a gym membership or new running shoes.

Incorporating a couple of these holidays into your content calendar and marketing activities can be a fun and highly effective way to engage your community and stand out from the crowd.  Cheers to planning an engaging content and marketing calendar for Q2 2021.
