Social Media Content Ideas for September

Did you know that September is International Square Dancing Month? Or that September 18th-24th is National Dog Week?

Creating content can be challenging. You must be on top of your calendar, looking for opportunities to promote your brand or small business. That’s why we’ve put together a list of all the national events this September – see if any of them align with your business and create some content around the events. We would hate to see any dentists miss out on World Smile Day, which is October 7th, in case you were wondering!
