Thinking of things to post on social media can be tricky. It can be easy to fall into the trap of just sharing sales posts promoting your business. But is that what you want to see from businesses you follow on social media? After all, we fast forward adverts on TV – do we really want to go in social media to see adverts? This is where our social media post ideas for September might help you.

These social media post ideas for September are here to help you think outside the box. Social media should be social. It doesn’t need to be all about business and sales. Let your audience know who is behind the business. This is what will help them build a relationship with you. It’ll make you stand out as a real business too, not just a logo.

So, here are our social media post ideas for September. Feel free to use as many or as few as you want to.

Happy Healthy Cat Month – We always joke that the internet is made for cats. If you have a cat or a cat in your neighbourhood, share a photo of it.

Shameless Promotion Month – Ignore everything we said above and post about your business. But don’t forget to use the national month as a hashtag.

National Cinema Day: 3 – When was the last time you went to the cinema? What did you see? What’s the best film you have ever seen at the cinema?

International Day of Charity: 5 – Do you support a local charity? Why not promote the local charity along with the great ways in which you support them.

National Teddy Bear Day: 9 – Have you still got your favourite teddy from when you were a child? Why not share a photo of it on your social media. A story alongside the photo is a great idea too.

Grandparent’s Day: 10 – Why not share a photo or story about your grandparents? What is your fondest memory of them or is there a life lesson they have taught you?

National Tattoo Story Day: 16 – Do you have any tattoos? What are they and what do they mean to you?

Read An eBook Day: 18 – Do you have any recommendations of eBooks that others should read? Recommend them and ask for industry recommendations too.

Talk Like A Pirate Day: 19 – This is always a popular day on social media. Have a little fun with it and ‘talk like a pirate’ in your social media posts.

National Proposal Day: 23 – Why not share your proposal stories? If this is relevant to your business, then share some information on that too.

World Tourism Day: 27 – Where is the best place you have been? You could even promote a local place to you to support local tourism. Photos of you there are a plus too!

National Coffee Day: 29 – How do you take yours? How many cups do you have a day? Why not run a poll to make it easy for your audience to join it too?

These are all ‘social’ ideas for the social media presence of your business in September. If you need help with social media posting for your business, give our team a call.
