Tips for Using our March Content Calendar Ideas

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

  • Choose the holidays or celebrations that are in sync with your audience. Think about the topics or interests that your audience might be interested in that are outside of your usual content types. Your audience might be interested in climbing but would also be interested in other types of outdoor adventures or maybe camping. Just because they like business advice doesn’t mean they don’t also love Cocktails or reading books by J.R.R Tolkien (yes, these are days in March!). So get really creative with the unusual and unique holidays we’ve included in our March content calendar. These types of posts make you relatable to your audience. You’re more human if you get excited about “Awkward Moments Day”. Step into the mind of your ideal audience and post about things they are likely to engage with. If the day in question is a good fit for your “ brand voice”, post it. Easy! 
  • Remember this is not an exhaustive list. We haven’t listed every single day of celebration for March. But it’s a comprehensive list that will get you started. Feel free to search for other types of celebration days to add to this list.   
  • Check the Day before posting. Despite double-checking every entry, we’d suggest that you check the Day in your region or country. Some of these days don’t change every year, and others do. For example, some of the days fall on the 1st Monday of the Month etc. So, despite our best efforts to check the dates we may still miss something. We recommend that you do a quick check yourself before posting. If we’ve made an error in our Calendar, please let us know! 
  • Check Instagram hashtags before posting. We aim to only share hashtags that haven’t been banned by Instagram. But we recommend that you use the tips in this post to check hashtags before you post. Over 100k hashtags are banned by Instagram at any time (temporarily or indefinitely), because the hashtag or content posted under that hashtag violates Instagram’s Community Guidelines. Unfortunately this also includes some “normal” hashtags like “Easter, Valentine’s Day, New Years”. They’re “banned” or removed when users post content that’s against Instagram’s guidelines. Banned hashtags may change, so it’s always best to double-check.  

Adding Images to Your March Social Media Posts

You can use our March content calendar in may different ways. You can start with one of our Easil templates or you can use your own photos or assets to create a post about the day of celebration. You’re only limited by your creativity in terms of how you illustrate the day.

You can also post a quote that relates to the day in question. For example, the 2nd of March provides a perfect opportunity for this, with Dr Seuss Day!

National Spanish Paella Day

Who doesn’t love Spanish Paella? This rice dish from Spain is now popular around the world. But it originated in the mid-19th century in Valencia on the east coast of Spain. Apparently workers in the fields would make a rice dish in a flat pan over a fire at lunchtime… mixing in whatever they could find from rabbit to snail to vegetables. On special occasions, chicken would be added!

Smoke and Mirrors Day

Today is all about the celebration of illusions and things that aren’t as they appear. When people can’t figure out how magicians do a trick they often say “It’s all smoke and mirrors.” If you can do a magic trick, today might be the day to pull it out of your hat, or share someone else creating an illusion! It’s a great day to share a magic video!

Manatee Appreciation Day
