When it comes to social media, the key is being social. There is no point just sharing adverts and sales for your business. Instead, you should use social media to engage with your audience. It can also be used to tell your audience more about who you are. This will then help with the relationship building. In this blog post we share ideas of things to post on social media in April 2021. These ideas should give you some inspiration of what you can post on social media in April.

Of course, the biggest event of April is Easter. This year it is on Sunday 4th April. Meaning that Good Friday is 2nd April and the start of the long bank holiday weekend. It’s a good idea to share easter egg puns for this long weekend over Easter. Have a little bit of tacky and egg-citing fun with it.

However, there are other national months, weeks and days in April. We have put together some of the best national days as ideas of things for you to post on social media in April 2021. Have a look at our ideas below:
