Need some content for July? Here is an array of topics you can create content for!
Month National Holiday Examples
Independent Retailer Month
Tell a story about starting your own retail shop. It doesn’t matter if it’s a brick-and-mortar or an online store, the story matters. Share the highs and lows of running your own retail business. Share images of how you started and how it’s going right now. This trend is still a social media favorite.
Don’t own a shop? Highlight some of your favorite independent retailers that you have purchased from. Create a reel of you in their looks or showcasing the products you’ve purchased from them.
National Picnic Month
Plan a day this month for a picnic outdoors for one or many. Grab your favorite outdoor blanket, beverages, and snacks and enjoy the summer sunshine. Use your picnic backdrop as a way to talk about something new and exciting that is coming soon. Or maybe this is your version of a staycation, right in your backyard.
National Culinary Arts Month
Are you an inspiring chef? Do you create magnificent creations in the kitchen? Share your favorite recipes you’ve created or ones that have inspired your favorite dishes.
National Ice Cream Month
Plan a date with your bestie or boo and grab some ice cream. Try a new spot you’ve never been to before. Take creative pictures of your cone or cup or a selfie of you + your ice cream date will always be great content to share.
Remember: These are monthly holidays. You can share content all month long or sprinkle it in throughout the month. Don’t post similar content back to back. Instead, spread out your content creation or curation of these national months.
