We found so many brilliant ideas of things to post on social media for your business during the month of October that we have had to split it into two parts. This is the second part. All of the following are ideas of things that you can share on your own social media so you can boost engagement and build a better relationship with your audience.

Remember to use your own words to make it unique to you, your business and your voice and use the national day or week as a hashtag so you can engage with other people posting about the same day too.

10th October is National Bring Your Teddy Bear to Work and School Day. The name of the day says it all; grab your teddy, take it to work and then snap a photo of it sat on the office chair or doing silly things around the office.

13th October is Silly Sayings Day; why not share the silliest sayings you know, or encourage others to do the same. The silliest ones we find are “Cheap at half the price!” which seems pretty obvious? Or “If he could hear you say that he would turn in his grave” – if he’s turning in his grave he’s probably alive so dig him up quick.

14th – 20th October is National Food Bank Week so why not run a collection at your office and take photos of the donations rising and even a photo of them being dropped off at the local food bank? This is a great way to show that you are a business that cares about your local community.

16th October is World Cat Day; another day to show snaps of your cat and get your audience to do the same. After all, cats are what the internet was made for!

17th October is National Take Your Parents To Lunch Day; why not do this yourself and send a photo out on social media, it shows you as a ‘real person’ and not just a business.

18th October is Newspaper Comic Strip Appreciation Day; share a photo of your favourite comic strip and see what your audience think.

26th October is Black Cat Day; just as popular as World Cat Day so get your audience to share their pictures of their own black cats.

28th October is National Chocolate Day – use it! You could set up a poll of favourite chocolate bars, do a competition for a chocolate hamper or send out free chocolate and more.

31st October is Halloween, with lots of activities and engagements on this well-known day, what can you do to boost your social media for Halloween? Will this day be a trick or treat for your business?

Don’t forget to come back next week for social media post ideas for November.
