Need July marketing ideas to fire up some business?
Yep, it’s summer. It’s hot. Kids are out of school.
People are thinking more about fun than business!
But if your business can provide any “keep cool” activities, recipes, clothing – they’re interested! Be sure to let your audience know.
You may also want to offer a summer or “Fourth of July” sale to capture interest. The graphic at the end of this section sports a cute idea!
You could use the theme of freedom or independence in your marketing efforts. Here’s a great page of freedom quotes.
And, it’s yet another big month for the red, white, and blue, camping, barbecues, and outdoor living. These themes will pique interest.
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.

Which July Marketing Ideas for Your Business?
There are truly holidays for every business and personality. Some days have more than 10 to choose from!
I love social media holidays and am compiling huge lists of hundreds for each month.
But just knowing the holidays doesn’t mean you’ll:
- Remember which happens when.
- Know how to use them in your marketing.
- Or have time to come up with eye-catching images and engaging captions to go with them.
That’s why there’s Your Social Plan!
Your Social Plan is a daily posting plan that combines beautiful, done-for-you content with powerful business-building prompts so you’ll never wonder what to post again.
Each day your business benefits from a combination of 3 posts:
M – Motivational / Inspirational
V – Visibility Boosting (like holidays!)
P – Promotional / Business Building
