August 2023 Social Media Holidays

Social Media • July 26, 2023

It can feel overwhelming trying to think up new social media content each and every week, week after week, all month long. If you feel like you’re stuck in a creative rut, I’ve got you covered. One way to save time and brain power is by batching your social media content and including social media holidays.

Start by planning your month of content out, being sure to incorporate social media holidays and awareness days that are applicable to your business and audience. This is a great way to connect and engage with your followers and ensure you’re providing them with valuable content. After incorporating those dates on your content calendar, you can fill in the gaps with the other content you want to create for the month.

Here are a few social media holidays and awareness days to consider incorporating for the month of August:⁠
