Food & Drink Post Ideas for March

Kicking off the month is British Pie week (7th – 13th), celebrating the beloved British since 2007. If you are a food or baking business you could ask your customers to share their favourite pie, maybe run a competition for the best-looking pie. Pancake Day or Shrove Tuesday (1st) is the traditional feast before the start of Lent on Ash Wednesday (2nd). Do you know why it’s called Pancake Day? Engage with your customers and see if they know. (Shrove Tuesday was the last opportunity to use up eggs and fats before embarking on the Lenten fast and pancakes are the perfect way of using up these ingredients).

Also in March is Food Waste Action Week, food waste is one of the largest contributors to climate change, but it is one where we can all start to make a big difference by adopting small changes in our behaviour. Share your thoughts and ideas on changes you plan to make to your business. Staying with the green agenda it is Global Recycling Day on 18th, governments and organisations around the world are taking direct action. Learn about #RecyclingHeroes. What are your business or personal goals to help support climate change? Once again Earth Hour will take place globally (8.30 pm local time), this year on 26th March. In 2021 192 countries and territories came together to show they care for the future of their planet and it trended in 42 countries across Twitter or Google search, now that’s a lot of reach! #EarthHour.

How to schedule social media posts

How to schedule social media posts

This is a question we are asked frequently. Our approach would be…

  • Look at your social media content plan for the month ahead.
  • Be clear on which social media channels your customer is spending time on. Once you’ve made this decision you can then decide which type of scheduling tool you might need. For example, if you’re only using Facebook try scheduling within the Creator Studio.
  • If you have multiple social media channels to schedule on there are many options out there. The popular ones tend to be… Hootsuite, Buffer, Agropulse.
  • Experiment and see which one you prefer. Remember don’t just schedule and run. The time you have saved scheduling ahead can be used to engage with your audience and monitor any inbox messages.
