The 1st of the month brings World Vegetarian Day!

On this day, companies have a unique opportunity to engage with their vegetarian followers and those who support the lifestyle by promoting, embracing and celebrating what it is to be vegetarian.

For those in the food industry, this is the perfect way to showcase your mouth-watering vegetarian dishes and menu. Show off your plant-based dishes with photos that show your audience that your business puts care and thought into creating yummy dishes for vegetarians. A cheeky special offer on vegetarian dishes for World Vegetarian Day will also be a big hit!

For those who aren’t in the food industry, you can still take the opportunity to share your own thoughts on sustainability, the environmental and ethical benefits of choosing vegetarian options and healthier living, and open up the conversation with your followers on the subject.
It may be a good way to show off what your company does to contribute to being environmentally friendly – such as recycling.

If you’ve got a veggie superstar in your company, why not give them the spotlight on World Vegetarian Day? It’s a fun way to show that you care about your team and take the time to get to know them. Sharing real stories from real people adds a personal touch to your company’s image, making it feel more relatable and friendly!

World Financial Planning Day is on the 4th of October!

World Financial Planning Day is all about raising awareness of the importance of financial planning. It’s a day to kickstart conversations about company finances and motivate people to invest time in enhancing their financial planning skills, ultimately promoting financial well-being.

For those involved in business finance, start by sharing valuable financial tips, insights, and strategies that can help those who may need money management help.

Conduct live Q&A sessions with financial experts from your organisation or invite guest speakers to discuss financial planning. Hosting interactive polls or quizzes related to financial literacy can also spark engagement.

Encourage your followers to open up about their financial goals and aspirations, and let them know how your company can assist them on their financial journey. It’s a perfect opportunity to remind business owners and finance professionals that there’s support available that can simplify financial planning and so much more.

World Mental Health Day is on the 10th of October – this is a very special day that every industry should take the time to raise awareness for.

Take the opportunity to demonstrate genuine care for the well-being of your employees and customers by sharing informative posts about mental health, offering tips for managing stress, and highlighting the importance of a work-life balance. Don’t be shy about showcasing how your company goes the extra mile to prioritise the mental well-being of its staff – it’s a testament to your values and can attract a loyal following.

If you and your company are passionate about World Mental Health Day, consider making it a day of giving back. Host a fundraiser for a local charity like Mind or Samaritans, perhaps through a fun-filled cake sale, charity run, or even a team challenge. Active participation in World Mental Health Day not only provides support to those facing mental health challenges but also shows off the compassionate and caring side of your company, making it more relatable to your audience. It’s a win-win for everyone!

Arguably one of the best holidays of the year, Halloween is fun, silly and full of sweet treats (and tricks!) and there’s not much you can do on this day that your followers won’t love!

Halloween can be whatever you want it to be.

To get even more engagement out of the day, why not conjure up some Halloween-themed trivia questions or quizzes and challenge your followers to test their knowledge, or ask your followers to send in their spookiest Halloween costumes or decorations, with hauntingly good prizes to be won!

For those who want to keep it simple but still treat your followers to some Halloween fun, dish out some spooktacular discount codes for the day!
