Well, it’s November, the leaves have fallen and have been replaced with poppies. Here in Canada, not only do we celebrate Remembrance Day on November 11, but we also honour Indigenous Remembrance Day on November 8. While much of the social media we see in November will be dominated by American Thanksgiving and the Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales, which have been adopted by many Canadian businesses, there is also Movember, the popular mustache movement to raise funds and awareness for men’s health issues, World Kindness Week, and Global Entrepreneurship Week.
We are back once again with your fully stacked social media calendar, providing ideas for business posts, fun posts, and posts that are all about who you are. We encourage you to print this out, mark it up with your ideas, and set your goals accordingly. As Dale Carnegie said, “An hour of planning can save you 10 hours of doing.”
Will you be setting any specific goals this month?
Are you taking advantage of the Black Friday/Cyber Monday kick off to holiday shopping? Use the lead up to tease sale offers.
As an entrepreneur are you going to use the Global Entrepreneurship Week to share about you, your business, and your products and/or services?
Take note of November 15th, National Entrepreneurship Day. There is also World Kindness Week in November. Share acts of kindness, inspirational quotes, or about organizations that help spread kindness.
Finally, we women can support the men in our lives and their physical and mental health struggles by promoting Movember causes and events.
