March 2013 Holidays, Observances, and Awareness Dates: Plan Your Promotions!

Great news, everyone: it’s almost March! That means that the majority of winter is far behind us and we can look forward to spring and all of the excellent promotions that come with the season.

There are plenty of ways to celebrate and thank your customers this month, but March is home to a very special day: Employee Appreciation Day. As awesome as your clients are, you don’t want to forget to thank your staff for all of their hard work! A custom jacket with your company logo would make a nice gift. If your budget is a little more limited, a fancy padfolio or pen would be just as appreciated!

Let’s see what else is going on this month:


If your business works with crafters or gardeners, March is your month to shine. Encourage some hands-on crafts by tackling the most intense DIY project on Pinterest or passing out mouse pads or mugs that children can decorate.

Consider putting your company logo on some gardening tool sets and raffling them out to your customers. For everyone else, any kind of plant with your company name on it will certainly be appreciated. You can get knee pads imprinted so that your customers will be comfortable when working on their home or garden. Even better? Make it a stadium cushion so that your recipients can use them at home or during the upcoming baseball season.

One of my favorite days in March is National Pi Day on the 14th. Fellow math and science nerd know that Pi is 3.14159… Nobody really needs a reason to get together, eat pie, and discuss radians, but why not make it extra special by passing out that pie with a custom server? Or encourage some calculations with a fun calculator?

Bars and restaurants should also be prepared for the St. Patrick’s Day parties this month. Whether that means specials, extra parties, or new drinks, make sure that you have plenty of logo drinkware to serve (or sell!) to your new patrons. From shot glasses to pint glasses, you can delight your customers and let them take your brand name home with them.

And last (but certainly not least) is March Madness! There is so much buzz surrounding this college basketball tournament that it would be silly not to jump on this marketing opportunity! Whether you opt for some basketball swag or just want to provide the koozies for the games, you can be sure that your logo will be seen and your customers will be thrilled.

    I think this song is needed to fully celebrate National Pi Day. Does it already have a theme song? If not, this is it.

    I am SO ready for spring! Also, I think I will use National Sleep Awareness Week as an excuse to take lots of naps. 🙂

    Great rundown of promo ideas, Mandy! I kind of want to throw a Pi Day party now …

    I think that getting a custom jacket with a company logo is a great idea! I am going to take that into consideration this year!
