Here are some ideas to help you generate social media and promotion ideas in MARCH:
Spring cleaning promotions – you could post or hold an event (online photo contest?) for any business related to homes or cleaning
Discounts on green-colored items tied to St. Patrick’s Day
Youth art contests – it’s easy to find copyright-free outline images online to use for kids to color
Tax preparation tips – great for CPAs, accountants, and other financial services businesses
Prom ideas and tips – especially for clothing, hair, makeup, limo services, florists
Publish a spring cleaning theme ebook. EBooks are really easy to make online – watch for my upcoming training on exactly how I do this using free services.
