Summer will be coming to a close before you know it, but there are still a couple more months of beautiful weather ahead. That’s a couple more months that your customers will be out and about. Your restaurants should be finishing the summer strong to make up for any chance of a business drop-off during the fall and winter. You need to think in advance to plan a successful marketing strategy, so were giving you almost a month to plan for August!
August is full of unique and interesting opportunities to reel customers in. While there aren’t any major holidays in August, there are numerous non-traditional holidays that you could incorporate into your August marketing plan. Many of these days involve food such as National Watermelon Day, International Beer Day and Sugar Cookie Day. Even though some of these non-traditional holidays don’t deal with food, for example you could offer discounts on National Girlfriend’s Day or Senior Citizens Day. You could also offer something to the kids as August is Get Ready for Kindergarten Month, and Back to School Month.
Don’t forget to also utilize these days to increase engagement on your social media pages. For instance, you could have customers post pictures on your Facebook page of them relaxing on National Relaxation Day. Or they could submit a picture of their furry Friend on National Dog Day.
Many important dates in history also occurred during the month of August. The end of World War II was August 14th, 1945. Also on August 21st, 1951, Hawaii became the 50th state.
