Right about now, it’s a good time to start planning your July, August and September advertising plans. Listed below are a bunch of dates, events and topical ideas to help you get started. I added in a couple for June since they are biggies!
1. Saturday June 11: King Kamehameha Day-Holiday, Parade, and Ho’olau’le’a
2. Sunday June 19: Father’s Day-So many things you can do. Couch Potato Contest, World’s Best Dad, Fathers Day Tweet of the Week, Fathers Day foursquare Swarm, Golf, Getaways, Lounge chairs, Big Screen TV’s, the list goes on-just better hurry-it’s almost here!
3. 4th of July/Independence Day-Get your service or business out somewhere, everyone’s in a good mood and there are tons of people everywhere-tie into Celebrations all over Hawaii including Schofield Barracks (60,000 people) Ala Moana Centers Fireworks(At the Mall or on the Beaches), Aloha Tower Fireworks, Possible Waikiki parade and Fireworks and Moanalua Bay Fireworks. Everyone likes to wear Red White and Blue-no better time than now to design a Patriotic Shirt and give the proceeds to the MWR or similar entity.
July in General:
Disaster and Awareness Month
National July Belongs to Blueberries Month
National Horseradish Month
National Ice Cream Month: Ice Cream Eating Contests, Design your own flavor contests, Create your own sundae on the web, bring it in and have them make it for you! one of kind Custom made just for you. One of the hottest trends in the last couple of years is custom-one of a kind. I bet you’d sell a ton of Sundaes. BTW: National Ice Cream Day is July 18th
National Hot Dog Month: Nathan’s does their big Hot Dog Eating Contest on July 4th-Let them do it, they do it the best and you don’t want to get sued for someone choking. Be really careful with something like this. Ice Cream is one thing, but Hot Dogs are a totally different Animal.
