As fun as the summer was, August is when people start to hunker back down and come back to reality. Your social media accounts need to come back from vacation, and here are some ideas to get you started:

  1. The first week in August is National Farmers Market Week, so share the information your audience needs to participate in the local area.
  2. Is your baseball or soccer team gunning for the playoffs? Stay engaged in the sport-o-sphere as the regular season comes to a close.
  3. Speaking of sports, the fall sports season is not too far away, which means it is time to think about purchasing sporting equipment again. If some of your partners are athletic or sporting goods stores, promote sales they may be having, and make sure your followers know what equipment they need for themselves and their kids to stay safe.
  4. #MotivationalMonday Idea: “Words without actions are the assassins of idealism.” – Herbert Hoover, born August 10, 1874
  5. As the summer season winds down, so does the motorcycle season, which is likely why National Motorcycle Week is the second week of August. Share with your audience motorcycle events, such as dealership test rides, and provide them with motorcycle classes that could help them get a discount on motorcycle insurance.
  6. Are there any end-of-summer concert tours in your area? If there are, make sure you let your followers know about them.
  7. Insurance #TipTuesday Idea: Talk to one of our agents about combining your secondary home into your home insurance coverage.
  8. Is your company thinking of doing one last outdoor event before the fall hits, chances are other companies are too. Share the group rates of some of your partners for company events, and remind them of the liability they handle as part of an outing.
  9. Speaking of your company, do you know what you need to do once a hurricane hits? Make sure your followers do, and what insurance they need to remain covered.
  10. Did you know the first week of August is Exercise with Your Child Week? Encourage your followers to engage in physical activities such as sports or simple recreation.
  11. #WhipItUpWednesday Idea: August is National Catfish Month, so extrapolate the concept by sharing your favorite seafood recipes
  12. At the end of summer, it is hard to get your life back into full swing. Push your followers in the right direction in the last week of August as part of National Return to Work Week.
  13. Since it is National Motorsports Awareness Month, it is a perfect time to talk about the power sports you provide insurance for, such as boats, ATV’s, RV’s, motorcycles, and classic cars.
  14. Insurance #FactFriday Idea: According to a 2013 DOT survey, 19.9% of people said they drive too fast for conditions or in excess of posted speed limit
  15. With summer winding down, how do you squeeze in a few last vacation days? Well, how about a daycation? Share some daycation ideas with your followers.
