- Wet and warm so no coat feels right.
- Trying to find the optimum moment to go for an Autumn walk before the freshly fallen crisp leaves turn to mulch.
- Being prepared and looking up how to change the clock on the cooker for when the clocks change, only to realise you gave up in March and it will be right again.
- Trying to think of stuff to post on your Facebook business page.
Sorry we can’t help with the first 3, but that last one on your list, consider it solved.
Coming right up is a list of awareness days, holidays, hashtags that will be trending on specific days in October.
Sometimes it’s hard to think about what you could be posting so thinking beyond what is immediately in front of you and getting inspiration from what your audience might be thinking about is a great place to start.
We know some of these ideas are a bit left field and may not sit with your audience, your business or your industry, but we aren’t suggesting you do every single one of them. After all, it is about timeliness and being relevant and not about setting a new Facebook business page record for the most posts in a month!
So let’s get started!
