Days to Celebrate in Q3 2021

business resources days to celebrate Jun 23, 2021

Summer is almost here, and with the change in seasons comes a new batch of days to celebrate for Q3.

While you are creating your content calendar for Q3, 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 coach to creative entrepreneurs who helps them balance all of their different ideas to know what to focus on. You could plan social media content, photos, and posts around Get to Know Your Customers Day and National Live Creative Day.

You could take it one step further and plan an entire campaign around National Live Creative Day. Engage your community and customers in a challenge to show how and why they live creative with a reward that supports their creative business.

Incorporating a couple of these holidays into your content calendar and marketing activities can be a highly effective way to engage your community and stand out from the crowd. Cheers to planning an engaging content and marketing calendar for Q3 2021.
