Content Ideas for Your October

Social Media • September 27, 2023

October is upon us! Cue the spooky decorations, pumpkins galore, and cooler weather.

As the summer quickly fades behind us and we find ourselves hurtling towards the end of the year, life can get pretty busy. It’s a whirlwind of activity and responsibilities, leaving business owners wondering where content creation fits into the schedule.

In the midst of this busyness, it’s crucial to maintain consistency in your content and ensure its value isn’t compromised. I get challenges of juggling all of the things while striving to keep your content engaging and meaningful – which is why I’m here to help!

Are you on the hunt for some creative sparks to illuminate your social media calendar? Perhaps you’ve looked at Meta Business Suite or turned to Facebook polls while trying to decipher how best to connect with your target audience. No matter what your business is or the narrative you’re looking for, there’s a holiday (or many!) that can strike a chord with your specific audience.

These social media awareness days and holidays encompass a wide spectrum of topics and niches, ranging from advocating for environmental causes and promoting social justice to emphasizing health, wellness, and those simple, enjoyable things in life (hello National Pizza Month?).

Here are a few social media holidays and awareness days to consider creating content around for the coming month:⁠
