October Calendar Content Ideas For Event Companies

What should event professionals talk about on social media in October?

With October we welcome in the final stretch of the year and what a year, or non-year, it’s been. If the absence of events has meant that you’re struggling to think what to post on social media, we’re here to help. After all, there’s only so many throwback posts anyone wants to see.

Our Social Media Content Calendar lists an awareness day for each day in October. Not only that, there are ideas of how you can use them, and they’re tailored to the events business. Helping you build your audience and making sure you don’t run out of ideas. We’ve thrown in some unusual ones too so you don’t need to be scared that you’ll be posting about the same things as everyone else. Social media doesn’t need to be scary. We’ll leave all that for Halloween.

We’ve listed some ideas to get you started below but if you’d like more ideas with a daily prompt for content then download our monthly content planner here.
