How to Gain Exposure with what will be Trending in September

September trends for exposure

Besides “Back-to-School” and Labor Day – what else is going on in September? Here are some of the observance and awareness days to help you plan your marketing to take advantage of what will be trending. Plan ahead to maximize your exposure.

Plan ahead to take advantage of what will be trending on social media

Sure, some are silly, but the idea is to get exposure by spinning your marketing message around these. You can do special promotions, blog articles or just tweet your support. Think about your target market and what’s important to them.

How to Use this List

Months start trending early in the morning on the 1st and usually will last the whole day. It’s also OK to post articles any time during the month, though you’ll not get the advantage of the trend on Twitter.

Weeks will trend for the first day of the week, and again, it’s proper to keep posting throughout the week. Days start trending early in the morning. Use TweetDeck to schedule posts in advance and to keep track of trends.
