Turkeys and yams aside, there are other opportunities to run month-long promotions. November is National Aviation Month, a perfect fit for airlines and aviation museums to spread the story of flight.
All Month Long Movember
Any business can run a mustache-growing competition to raise awareness of prostate cancer and other men’s health issues. Weekly updates on the growth posted online will enhance the fun.
11-11 Veterans Day
It’s a time to salute the men and women of the armed forces. International Girls Day, 14, is on target for a promotion to help young girls build their confidence and harness their unique “girl power.” For offbeat promotions, you can run a wacky “Have A Bad Day” Day on the 19th to get back at all those loose-lipped “have a good day” well-wishers. Finally run a company-wide employee appreciation event on Celebrate Your Unique Talent Day, 24. The event can be recorded and shared on all your social media platforms.
