Marketing Ideas for June

Here are a few marketing ideas for next month to get those creative juices flowing!

1st – Parents Day

2nd – National Donut Day
This is a US one (hence the spelling), not sure if it’s People or Pastries…

5th – World Environment Day
World Environment Day has taken place on June 5 every year since 1972, and is a day of activities held every year on June 5 to support protection of the environment. Each year has a different theme and a different host. This it’s #GenerationRestoration

7th – First Legoland Anniversary!
Opened in Denmark, 1968. Maybe have a Lego building competition for customers or in the office?

11th – Queens Birthday
Her Majesty the Queen has two birthdays each year. Her actual birthday is April 21st, and she usually celebrates privately. Her official birthday is usually the second Saturday in June with a more public (and hopefully warmer) celebration. Get the union jacks at the ready for some Royal fun using #HappyBirthdayYourMajesty

14th – World Blood Donor Day
The event serves to raise awareness of the need for safe blood and blood products and to thank voluntary, unpaid blood donors for their life-saving gifts of blood.

20th Fathers Day
It may not be as lucrative as mothers day (yet!) but it’s still a great day for businesses looking for an early summer boost. Since women make the most purchases for fathers and husbands, create promotions that appeal to their desire for convenient, easy shopping and cost savings.  Remember it’s not just for dads, it’s for fathers-to-be, fathers-in-law, stepfathers, grandfathers and father figures…..

15th-19th – Royal Ascot
An important date in the racing calendar but it’s not just about the horses. Have fun with a design-a-hat competition or other ladies’ day promotion. As attendance is limited this year, why not hold your own ‘ladies’ day’ if it works for your business and of course don’t forget picnic and champagne themed promotions.

18th – my Birthday
Clearly a HUGE marketing day – but have fun and wear a hat 🙂

19th – World juggling day
Can you juggle?  Can anyone in your office juggle? What fun things can they juggle?

21st – Summer Solstice 
It’s the longest day of the year so how can you encourage your audience to make the most of the long evenings?  It’s also time to plan those holidays and some summer fun. Get involved with any specials or promotions that tie into warm-weather vacations and fun.

26th – Global Smurfs Day
Yes! It’s a real thing 🙂

29th June to July 4th – Henley Royal Regatta
Established in 1839, this is a traditional event held each year on the River Thames ….. blazers and boaters galore! Something boat themed? A paper boat race in your local park if you want to keep it old fashioned!

Marvellous Marketing…

There’s 3 great things about this advert. Firstly, sometimes the best marketing doesn’t need to mention the product directly! Secondly, it can pay to be topical- it keeps you relevant. And finally, creating an emotional connection is a great way to resonate with your audience.  This is a lovely fun, topical advert that will appeal to their target audience.
