April is almost here, which means Spring is upon us (or it should be)! Whether it comes to starting to get ready for summer plans or finally cracking down on that spring cleaning, April is an exciting time. But with so many different companies competing for the attention of your audience, it’s essential you hit people with smart, targeted messages. That starts with strategically-timed content marketing.
We’ve hand-picked four concepts that you can make your own to fit your business’s content marketing strategy on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, blogs, emails, and other channels. We believe one of the best ways to build a connection with current and prospective customers is by posting content worth sharing. Use these ideas as a jumping off point to add a few new things to your content calendar this April.
1. Sexual Assault Awareness Month #SAAM, #IASK
Sexual Assault Awareness Month is a campaign to raise public awareness about sexual violence and educate communities on how to prevent it. The campaign theme, I Ask, champions the message that asking for consent is a healthy, normal, and necessary part of everyday interactions.
