Why June Holidays Make Great Social Media Posts
Back in my corporate marketing days, when I managed the social media channels for a $150 million business, I rejoiced when a holiday came around.
Holiday posts were easy to create, and they always received more “likes” than any other post.
Not many people will engage with a post about a company news release or an industry article, but many who see a post wishing everyone a Happy Father’s Day will give it a “like.”
Including holidays in your social media content is an easy way to increase engagement and reach. People are already talking about the holiday, so you need to join the conversation.
You can use holiday-related hashtags, post photos celebrating the holiday, run contests, or offer discounts or special promotions related to the holiday.
Not sure how to get started? Here are some ideas:
- Share recipes for favorite dishes served on the holiday
- Give tips on how to decorate for the holiday
- Offer advice on entertaining during the holiday season
- Share photos of employees or customers celebrating the holiday
- Run a contest related to the holiday
- Offer a discount on products or services related to the holiday
With this list of June holidays, you will be able to easily come up with social media content ideas for June that will resonate with your audience and help you increase engagement and reach on your social channels.
For a business owner or marketer, holiday posts not only increase your social media engagement, but they’re also easy posts to create that fill your followers with positive emotions.
When sharing a holiday post, always include an image or video with your status update, no matter what platform you’re using.
That’s because posts with an image get 2.3 times more engagement than posts without an image. (source) Also, tack on a holiday-themed hashtag to make it easy for people to find your content, and use location tagging if you have a physical storefront.
Including an image with your post is the easiest way to DOUBLE engagement and it’s why the Social Media Content Club, our industry-leading social media software, is FULL of eye-catching images.
