TIPS FOR USING OUR APRIL CONTENT CALENDAR IDEAS

Here are our top tips and tricks for getting the most out of April Content Calendar: 

  • Choose the days or celebrations that are in sync with your audience. Get into the minds of your audience and think about what your ideal customer might be interested in outside of your usual content categories.  They might love technology but may also love to get outdoors and go screen-free! Just because they like hearing about social media tips and business doesn’t mean they don’t also love Beer or reading quotes by Winston Churchill.  Get creative with the unusual and unique holidays we’ve included in our April content calendar. After all, these types of posts make you more relatable! You’re more human if you get excited about the idea of wearing your PJs or Onesie to work. Think like your ideal follower or customer and post about things they are likely to engage with. You’ll soon know if the “Day” in question is a good fit for your audience.
  • Remember this isn’t an exhaustive list. Or course we can’t list every single day of celebration for April. But it’s a super handy list that will get you started. We encourage you to search for more/extra celebration days to add to this list.   
  • Check first. Despite double-checking all the entries, we’d suggest that you check the holidays for your region or country too. Some days of celebration stay the same every year, and others do not. For example, some of the days fall on the 1st Monday of the Month, so they’ll change each year. It’s always best to do a check yourself before posting. And it goes without saying, that if you spot an error, please let us know! 
  • Check Instragram Hashtags.  Although we aim to share hashtags that are not banned by Instagram, we recommend you check the status of a hashtag as it can change overnight. Use the tips in this post to check hashtags first. Instagram bans thousands of hashtags at any time (temporarily or indefinitely) usually because the hashtag or content posted under that hashtag violates Instagram’s Community Guidelines. Unfortunately this currently does include some “normal” hashtags like “Easter, Valentine’s Day, New Years” so avoid using these. Banned hashtags may change – so always check first.
  • Not all countries are covered. Although Easil is based in Australia, these holidays are from around the world, with many being North American Holidays. Although we endeavour to have holidays from many areas, it’s impossible to cater for every country. Use this list to get started and then research your local area or primary demographic to find more ideas. Hint Hint – you an always come back to Easil to create images for them!

ADDING IMAGES TO YOUR APRIL SOCIAL MEDIA POSTS

You can use our April content calendar in may different ways. You can start with one of our Easil templates to edit and create your design. Or, you can use your own photos or assets to create something custom. You’re only limited by your creativity in terms of how you illustrate the day.

HOT TIP: Why not post a quote that relates to the day in question? For example, the 9th April provides a perfect opportunity for this, with Winston Churchill Day.

MONTH OF APRIL CONTENT CALENDAR IDEAS

Ready? Here’s our list of holidays for the month of April:

1ST APRIL:

April Fools Day

First up on our April Content Calendar is that cheeky time of the year when we play pranks on each other. Use the hashtag #AprilFools. You can get clever with this “day” having some fun with your audience, maybe making a joke about something harmless to do with your industry.

Just be warned that you need to tread a little carefully with April Fool’s Day posts. People can be gullible and may unwittingly share it as fact, so you might want to make it clear that it’s April Fools somewhere in the post if it’s something likely to go viral!  Although we have faith that people are smart and can work it out!

Make a Wish Day

Celebrated on April 29th annually, this day commemorates the anniversary of the wish that inspired the Make-A-Wish foundation.  It all started in 1980 with a young, 7-year old boy named Chris Greicius who was diagnosed with leukaemia and wished to be a policeman. His Mother, her friends and a group of police officers brought his wish to fruition. Later in 1986, the Make-A-Wish foundation was founded in the UK and since then has helped to change the lives of more than 12,000 seriously ill children by granting their One True Wish.
