Social Media Inspiration for April

Social Media Inspiration for April

As you plan out your social media posts for April, I'd like you to consider the following:

What are my business goals?  This month, this year, in the next five years.

How can my social media posts & content reach these goals?

What content can I share to help build relationships & awareness.  Show the authentic side of my business?  The Human Side.

Planning out your social media content in advance can not only save you time, stress, and energy, it allows you to strategically maximize the reach and engagement of planning content that matches what will be trending that month.

So if your goal is to increase reach, get more engagement, and ultimately get more website traffic, followers, customers and revenue - read on.

 

April Poem
April National Days

April National Days

Using National Days in your social media content plan is an easy way to tap into topics that will be trending on the day of the post.  You can use national days to have fun, or the opposite to tap into serious issues and show your support for various causes and issues.

I often refer to the website NATIONAL DAY CALENDAR to research what national days might suit my audience, and to use for my clients.

Remember to use the corresponding hashtags as they are often trending on Instagram and Twitter.

National Day posts tend to get more reach and engagement and are a great "social" style of post where you are authentically trying to connect with your audience.

APRIL NATIONAL DAYS you might be interested in posting about include (but are not limited to)

  • Apr 1 - April Fool's Day
  • Apr 2 - World Autism Awareness Day
  • Apr 7 - National No Housework Day
  • Apr 9 - National Unicorn Day
  • Apr 11- National Pet Day
  • Apr 12- National Grilled Cheese Sandwich Day
  • Apr 15- Good Friday
  • Apr 16- National Eggs Benedict Day
  • Apr 17- Easter
  • Apr 18- Easter Monday
  • Apr 20- National Banana Day
  • Apr 22- National Earth Day
  • Apr 28- National Superhero Day
  • Apr 27- Stop Food Waste Day
  • Apr 30- National Adopt a Shelter Pet Day

 

There are quite a few National Days and other celebrations in the month of April, and certainly a few of them might suit your business and your audience.  Also watch for local holidays and celebrations that may be worth posting about too.  

April Hashtags

April Hashtags

Doing your research on what hashtags to use can be a valuable strategy to increase your reach and engagement across all social media platforms.  Learn more about hashtags.

Certain hashtags may be trending for a day, or might just be more popular overall.  Historically the most popular Hashtags on Instagram are:

  • #Love
  • #Fashion
  • #PhotoOfTheDay
  • #Beautiful
  • #Photography
  • #PicOfTheDay
  • #Happy
  • #Follow

If you are interested in what is trending on Twitter, which I check daily you can visit

https://twitter.com/explore/tabs/trending

Or another tool I love is Tweeplers

The benefit of using popular hashtags in your social media posts is that people often search for or click on those hashtags MORE than other hashtags, resulting in more reach and engagement for your social media posts.

    Helpful post. I really don’t use hashtags as much as I should. I also need to use the National holidays more as well. I agree that it’s so helpful to plan content in advance. For me, it helps me get my thoughts in line so I can write more freely. Thank you.
