Social Media Content Ideas For March

Well, March is now underway and with that a mix of weather (snow here in Ireland on the 1st!) and quite a few different dates to look forward to with bank holidays and easter countdowns underway.

March is generally one of those months that easily lends itself to different themes outside of your business. That said we’re including some ideas that can be applied generally during this month along with some specific dates that might be suited to your specific industry.

Themes that you might use during March;

  • Spring Cleaning: Spring is a time for fresh starts, and social media can offer tips and tricks for cleaning and decluttering your home, wardrobe, and digital life.
  • Women’s History Month: Celebrate the accomplishments of women throughout history on social media, sharing stories of pioneering women and highlighting current female role models.
  • Self-Care Sunday: Encourage followers to take time for themselves each week, a good idea all year round in fact but after a long winter it’s the ideal reminder to start getting set for brighter days ahead.
  • Women’s History Month: Celebrate influential women who have made an impact on society
