How to Create Relevant Content for Social Media When You’re Stuck on Ideas
We all know about those fun and quirky national holidays right?
Not too long ago it was National Pink Day. Did you post anything to social media that day? The reason I ask is because I'm curious to know if you're using the National Holidays to your advantage? When you can’t think of something fun yet relevant to share with your audience on social media, all you have to do is consider what the quirky national holiday of the day or month is. For instance, July is National Blueberry Month which means it's time to get your Something Blue photos gathered and ready to share. If you use the fun holidays to your advantage, you can re-purpose content you already have in a new way. Are you ready to get started?

For the entire month of July - here’s what’s happening in addition to it being National Blueberry Month . . .
National Culinary Arts Month - which is perfect for caterers or any wedding pro to share the food served at their weddings
Consider tagging #culinaryarts and/or #culinaryart and/or #weddingfood
National Hot Dog Month
Consider tagging #gourmethotdogs
National Ice Cream Month - this is ideal for summer to showcase ice cream cones. I love seeing these in engagement sessions. Or, maybe there’s an ice cream truck at your couple’s wedding?
Consider tagging #icecreamtruck and/or #icecreamcones
National Independent Retailer Month
National Picnic Month - I can see this being super popular for engagement sessions and even styled shoots
Consider tagging #picnicday and/or #picnictime and/or #picnicwedding
The following tags might also work - but right now, there’s not enough results in their searches to justify using them: #NationalCulinaryArtsMonth, #NationalHotDogMonth, #HotDogMonth, #NationalIceCreamMonth, #IceCreamMonth, #NationalIndependentRetailerMonth, #IndependentRetailerMonth, #NationalPicnicMonth
So, when your brain won’t let you think clearly, simply look to a fun National Holiday for inspiration. You will then have something relevant while being able to re-purpose content/photos you already have on hand. Just be sure to include targeted hashtags for the holiday to get some new eyes on your amazing work.
