Social Media Content Ideas For April

social media content ideas for april

April already and brighter days, longer evenings, time out from work and school, and, as with all months, plans to make for the month ahead. As always we’ve got a selection of dates that might be useful for themes to use in your social media during the month ahead but first some general themes that work for more than just one date during April;

Spring Cleaning – whether you’re working in social media and have advice for de-cluttering your various platforms, you’re a VA with great tips on reaching an inbox zero, a gardener with great tips for taking control of your outdoors, a beautician who can tell you what to ditch when it comes to your make-up bag, an IT company who can help you tidy up that desktop, or indeed a cleaning company who can help you clear up and de-clutter in your home, there’s an angle for just about everybody with this one.

Easter – by the time you read this Easter Sunday may well be behind you but don’t forget there’s school holidays until 8th April so it’s still relevant to refer to easter while your potential clients may be enjoying time off work on an easter break.

Awareness months – while there are specific dates that are designated to various causes and campaigns, in many cases there are specific months and you can incorporate some of these into your marketing for April across more than just your social media where it’s appropriate. During April 2024, some of the awareness themes include Stress Awareness, Autism Acceptance, Jazz Appreciation, Gardens, Parkinsons’ Disease Awareness, and Decorating. Do a search on any of these for inspiration if it’s something that might be suited to your business.

And now on to the individual awareness days, for April there’s lots to work with including;

1st April – Easter Monday; today’s a day off work for lots of us but for those in businesses such as retail or hospitality it’s a busy day and as it’s a bank holiday, ensure if you’ve got different opening hours or if a reservation is essential, that it’s clearly visible on your website and social media.
