Engagment is one of the top three keys to Instagram success…
…and creating content that your audience want to engage with plays a huuuuuuge part in this! Cos who wants to engage with shit content?! I bet you wouldn’t!
Let’s get one thing straight before we dive in though… you do not need to use every single bloody national day… in fact, I encourage you NOT to over use these. Just pick out the days that are super relevant to your audience and your business and create quality content around them.
☀️ JULY GENERAL THEMES
It’s a weird ol’ July this year. When we’d usually be counting down the sleeps until we’re in that airport lounge, we’re instead wondering what this summer is gonna look like. Take this into account when picking your days to create content around.
- Summer school holidays
- Summer fun
- Summer food
- Staycations (thanks Corona )
