The July marketing calendar is a treasure trove of opportunities for creative marketers. World Emoji Day falls on July 17 and is the perfect time to use emojis in your social media posts or with one of these ten fun emoji gift ideas. July also hosts National Anti-Boredom Month, Independent Retailer Month, and Pandemonium Day; take advantage by coming up with new ways to engage customers via email, live chat, or other means!
If you are in the U.S., July 4th offers many patriotic opportunities as well. Freedom, Independence, and Unity are all themes that can be used for posts on social media and email campaigns. These topics offer many angles and creative opportunities.
Minority Mental Health Month is another opportunity to shed light on an often overlooked reality for many people. e. July is home to a weeklong campaign that provides opportunities for people of all races and ethnicities to come together in understanding mental illness, asking questions, and talking about their experiences with the goal of reducing stigma.
July is also National Independent Retailer Month. This is a great time to recognize independent retailers, especially with all they went through this past year. Promote your own business if you are one, and support your local businesses through a call-out or feature on your own social media channels.
Another great July opportunity is World Emoji Day. This day celebrates the emoji with events, contests, and a designated social media hashtag to use. Lots to have fun with!
July also has Pandemonium Day—a chance for people to have fun in whatever way they want! You can let loose by eating ice cream, watching your favorite movie, or just letting go of all the stress you’ve had this past year. The choice is yours on what you do during pandemonia; it’s up to each individual person how they will enjoy themselves that day.
Another famous July tradition ( or to some maybe infamous) is Christmas in July. This is a great opportunity to run special discounts and sales.
And who could forget about International Chocolate Day on July 7th? Anyone can get excited about this holiday. Maybe there are some special chocolate gifts that need to be sent to those extra special customers.
July is a great time to reach out to customers, share your personality and creativity with them.
What are you waiting for? July awaits!
