May The Fourth And These Content Marketing Ideas Be With You…
Will lockdown end this month? Who knows? We hope you are safe and well – we have looked through some of the National days and here are some to consider in your marketing plan for May.
May is national share a story month, the theme for Share a story is the Planet we Share – this can include stories about people, animals and also the state of our planet, giving a fairly wide set of stories to be shared and celebrated this year.
May the 4th be with you! Will you be channelling your inner Princess Leah on Star Wars Day.
Just to keep us on our toes the first bank holiday in May has been moved to Friday 8th May. This to coincide with Victory in Europe Day, or VE Day, which marks the 75th anniversary of the formal end of World War II. So get the bunting out and let’s celebrate from the comfort and safety of our gardens.
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!
11th – 17th is National Vegetarian Week – be sure to check for any postponements as some national weeks have been postponed due to the Coronavirus. 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 18th – 22nd (we wish! We will be skipping them to school- if they are open by then!!
National Children’s Gardening Week is 23rd – 31st May. Can you share a project idea or safety tips for kids?
The month closes with another bank holiday (25th), National Biscuit Day (29th) and we should have been celebrating English Wine Week at the end of the month, however, we believe it has been postponed to a date in June, quite frankly we will be ignoring the change of date and continuing to celebrate.
