Posting consistently on social media can require a lot of thought and creativity. When it seems like your fresh out of content ideas, it can help to do some research on what is relevant. Maybe there’s a current event in the news that is trending online that you can tie to your brand. One easy way to stay relevant is by doing a quick search to see what events and holidays are coming up in the next month. It will help you gather new post ideas, and it can also give you new ways to bond with your coworkers and families.
We’ve done the work for you by gathering some content ideas for March 2020:
The NCAA Division I men’s basketball tournament is one of the biggest events in all of sports. It’s been played annually since 1939! Selection Sunday is on March 15th of this year. You can engage your audience by asking questions on who they’re rooting for and brainstorm unique ways to tie the games to your brand.
Major League Baseball Opening Day
March is a big month for sports fans this year! The MLB season also kicks off on March 26th, which is the earliest Opening Day ever. For the third consecutive season, all 30 teams will play on this day. It’s another opportunity to get your sports fans on social media engaged!
National Women’s History Month
During Women’s History Month, many organizations across the country join together in commemorating and encouraging the study, observance, and celebration of the vital role of women in American history. Throughout the month of March, you can highlight different women on your social media channels who have influenced you or made your company what it is today.
Daylight Saving Time
The main purpose of Daylight Saving Time is to make better use of daylight. An idea you can consider when creating content is to remind your audience on your social media channels that they need to move their clocks an hour forward on Sunday, March 8. You may consider sharing third-party articles covering tips on how to adapt to the “Spring Forward” time change or explaining why we still change our clocks.
National Pack Your Lunch Day
This one is a little less of a formally observed holiday but still fun! Every year on March 10th, many people across the country pack their own lunch to take to work, school, or wherever else they spend their day. You can engage your audience by sharing how your company participated as a group. It’s fun to share for engagement on social, and it’s a great way to interact more at lunch with your coworkers!
National Pi Day
On March 14th, or “3.14”, Pi Day is celebrated around the world. Do you know that besides pi, March 14th also celebrates Albert Einstein’s birthday? Most who celebrate Pi Day participate with pizza pies and fruit pies as a means of channeling their inner mathematician. This is another way to engage with your audience on social by sharing how your business or family participated in the fun!
Saint Patrick’s Day
Saint Patrick’s Day is a global celebration of Irish culture held on March 17th. It’s widely known for the day that people wear green for good luck. Wishing your social media audience a happy Saint Patrick’s Day and sharing how your company participated can help showcase your company’s culture.
