Social Media Content Ideas for May

May brings more sunshine and bank holidays… we can feel the Vitamin D already! We have looked through some of the National days and here are some to consider in your marketing plan for May.

May is National Walking Month, if you’re not completely fed up of walking after lockdown can you set a new goal for yourself or take part in a walking challenge for charity and get donations?

May the 3rd is the early bank holiday swiftly followed by Star Wars Day… May the 4th be with you. Will you be channelling your inner Princess Leah?

9th May is National Lost Sock Day and 12th is Limerick Day – you could put out a ‘lonely hearts’ ad for one of your lost socks or write a limerick and ask your audience for their favourite. Sometimes, silly is good, and social media is the medium for that!

10th-16th is National Vegetarian Week –a new veggie challenge for 2021 is due to be announced soon and there are a number of ways to get involved whether you’re a business or blogger on their website. How about sharing some top recipes or asking for recommendations? Do you know a great vegetarian restaurant doing deliveries?

Walk to school week is the 17th-21st, we’re sure after all the home-schooling this year, parents are skipping their children to school!

National Children’s Gardening Week is 29th May – 6th June. Can you share a project idea or safety tips for kids?

Learning at Work Week takes place from 17th-23rd, the theme this year is ‘Made for Learning’, putting the spotlight on the importance and benefits to learning and development. Can you share something you have learned at work this week/month or do you have an apprentice learning on the job?

The month closes with another bank holiday (31st) and National Biscuit Day (29th), what a great way to end the month.
