In addition to Pi Day, March is full of national days that celebrate some the people around you. Each of these social media holidays is an opportunity to share content to engage your fans and attract new followers. Think of these holidays as a chance to promote your brand in a relevant way and join the conversations taking place among members of your target audience.
You’ll find holidays for nearly every day of March. Narrow your own calendar down to focus on the holidays that mean the most to you and your customers. If you can connect the holiday to your store, you’ll create more engagement.
To make the most of these opportunities, post early in the morning so your followers see you as leading the celebration, not just jumping on the bandwagon. Make sure you use the holiday hashtag to attract a wider audience.
You’ll also want to post content about March’s birthstone, aquamarine. Remember that March birthdays can also be celebrated with the zodiac gemstones for the month: amethyst for Pisces and bloodstone for Aries.
