Don’t try to shoe-horn your brand into a loosely related awareness day. Remember your social media marketing goals and your brand values. Keep your content aligned with what you’re trying to achieve at all times. Sure, you could create some cute posts for Cupcake Day, but would that make sense for a mostly male audience? Not really.

Good luck with your June content calendar planning and please like, share and comment below 🙌
