Heat Up Your Marketing for August!

August has a different marketing opportunity for each day. I like National Watermelon Day since watermelon is tasty and refreshing and it brings back many happy memories of summertime family picnics and barbecues.

I’m curious what marketing promotion you can do for National Zucchini Day? I’m thinking something for Farmer’s Markets and organic grocers and maybe restaurants.

National Root Beer Float Day sounds like a fun family oriented marketing event. Invite your best customers and their families to your business for Root Bear Floats on August 6th! August 16th is National Bratwurst Day. I’m thinking a Bratwurst eating contest could promote your business.

In the heat of August National Lemonade Day on August 20th sounds like a refreshing way to show your clients how much you appreciate them. I’m visualizing lemon yellow flyers offering free lemonade during a special sale event. I could use some lemonade now. I’m thirsty.
