Marketing Content Ideas for March
It’s been an exceptionally long 12 months since we first went into a national lockdown, however, the new road map and vaccine programme has given us all some hope. The hours of daylight are getting longer and changes are happening all around us, there is still lots to look forward to this month to keep us going!
There are some big events taking place including St David’s Day (1st) and St Patrick’s Day (17th), World Book Day (4th), Earth Hour (27th) and – yes! – Spring starts on the 20th. If you have Welsh or Irish connections, or products that are made/sourced/inspired by, show your heritage on the Saints days.
Comic Relief takes place on the 19th, and there are plenty of serious and seriously silly things that take place around that, this year, more than ever, is a good time to have some fun while raising money for people in need.
Earth Hour (wwf.org.uk/earthhour) on the 27th is potentially a great hook to demonstrate your ethical and environmental awareness as a business, by joining the global movement to switch off your lights or your phone for an hour. Join the Facebook event for more information.
If you’re a parent in the Midlands, the 1st of March is the day where you’ll find out about senior school places for your children. Fingers crossed it’s the one you wanted!
National Butchers Week (8th-14th), British Pie Week (1st-7th March) and Nutrition and Hydration week (15th-21st) all feature this month– and who doesn’t like to talk/read/look at food?!
#ChooseToChallenge is the theme for this year’s International Women’s Day on the 8th of March, where each one of us can help create a gender-equal world. Celebrate the achievements of women you know and get involved with local events if you can, using the hashtag #IWD2021.
Is it a coincidence that the Spring Equinox, or the start of Spring, is the same day as the International Day of Happiness? Maybe… but the 20th is a great moment to share what makes you happy and invite others to join in.
Mothering Sunday is on 14th this year, and the clocks ‘Spring forward’ on the 28th – both are Sunday events that give you an opportunity to post on the weekend, the F1 Grand Prix season also starts in Bahrain on the 28th.
It’s also National Careers Week (NCW) from the 1st-6th March, a celebration of careers guidance and free resources in education across the UK. The aim is to provide a focus for careers guidance activity at an important stage in the academic calendar to help support young people leaving education, which is so important since education has basically been on pause since the beginning of the coronavirus pandemic.
