June 2014 Holidays, Observances, and Awareness Dates: Plan Your Promotions!
Believe it or not, June is coming up fast! It’s kind of crazy when you think about it. After all, wasn’t it just winter?
Warmer temperatures are (hopefully) on their way so we can finally start saying that “Summer is Coming.” And with summer comes a ton of outdoor festivals, parades, block parties, and community events that will give your brand a reason to have some kind of promotion. Whether you want to host some kind of golf tournament or just want to start handing out sunscreen as a promo item, there’s a way to make the weather work for you!
Let’s take a look at what’s happening in June:
We can’t stop talking about how great it is that summer is almost here. It’s exciting to spend more time outside! So it makes a lot of sense that both Great Outdoors Month and Zoo and Aquarium Month fall during June. Local parks and zoos should make sure to ramp up their advertising or social media efforts to draw visitors. Give customers (or people you want to make customers) a useful promo item that they can use all summer long and you’ll get a whole season of brand impressions.
Along with the warm weather comes a brand new crop of fresh fruits and vegetables. It also means that farmers’ market season is in full swing. Whether you just want to promote healthier eating around the office or want to give your clients a way to carry their food home, there’s a lunch or tote bag to do it! You can even give your customers a discount on return trips when they bring back their reusable bag.
June also hosts National Business Etiquette Week. Certainly we all have and show etiquette in our businesses all year long, but the first week of the month is a great time to remind everyone else. Consider writing personal thank you notes to your clients or sending them a small gift to remind them how much you care. It’s also a great week to thank your employees for their service.
And now for the cutest part of the post: June is National Adopt a Cat Month! Local shelters can use the recognition to showcase all of the sweet cats and kittens who need homes! And heck, no need to stop there, promote all your furry or scaled friends by swapping fun pet-themed promo items for donations or when a pet finds a new forever home.
Now how about a promotion for you?! Remember last year when we had that giant sale/party for Bubba’s Birthday? We’re doing it again! June 2nd will be a day to remember. Keep your eyes peeled for a blog post detailing the specifics of the promotion and get ready for plenty of fun!
