You’re in the right place if you need ideas for promoting your business in September. First off, September is National Biscuit Month. I’m picturing a contest on Facebook and having people post photos of what they like eating with their biscuits. Let fans choose which are the best looking photos. Or have people send in recipes and post a few recipes in your newsletter. Then have people comment on which biscuit recipe they tried and why they enjoyed it.
September 6th is National Coffee Ice Cream Day. I think that would work great for ice cream shops, coffee shops, coffee roasters and even restaurants. Come up with specialty coffee ice cream flavors. September 29th is National Coffee Day so you can have to great promotions going on during the month. Maybe even have a Foursquare check-in promotion of a free coffee or coffee ice cream. Let me know what you do and how it turns out.
Bakeries need to be aware of National Cream-Filled Donut Day on September 14th. Get crowds clambering for a cream-filled donut! National TV Dinner on September 10th could work for weight loss programs using special frozen dinner meals.
And if you want to promote healthy eating September 7th is National Acorn Squash Day.
