Need April marketing ideas? Think Spring!
In the Northern Hemisphere, most folks are sick of Winter and are ready to welcome some lovely Spring imagery.
Do you offer something that would help followers experience a “rebirth” in their life, home, or business? Tap into this theme of renewal. These Spring quotes might inspire a campaign.
It’s also a big month for gardening, growing, and “greening,” with Earth Day and Arbor Day. Perhaps your theme this month could be growth or conservation.
If none of this resonates with your business, there are lots more ideas to choose from! You can even get them as ready-to-post content, which you’ll hear more about further down.
