SEPTEMBER SOCIAL MEDIA DATES 🍁
Updated: Aug 3, 2022
The bittersweet realization that Fall is upon us ... 🍂 I hope you have had a wonderful summer. I sure have! I was pretty committed to being OOO most Fridays to spend more time with my family and in nature. ☀️
It's time to start thinking about September social media but before we do that, I should do my usual harping 😉 on you about making REELS. REELS actually turned 2 years old this month 🎂 and continues to grow in importance.
Did you know the average IG user spends 30 minutes per day on the app? Last fall Instagram for Business reported that 91% of active IG users watch videos on Instagram at least once a week. For us small business owners who also wear the marketing hat, this signals that videos continue to be boss. Reels are the ticket if you are actively trying to reach new audiences and increase engagement.
If you feel overwhelmed by Reels, book a training session. 📲
Well enough harping, let's get into September social media dates.
