August 2018 events for your agency’s social media: Black Business Month, Lighthouse Day, Elvis Week and more

August is the heart of summertime here in New England - time for vacations by the beach or the lake - a good time to focus on water and watercraft safety and insurance. There are many seasonal activities scheduled throughout the region, from clambakes to ball games. National Lighthouse Day is a great excuse for a road trip! Plus, there are fun national events, too, like International Beer Day and Elvis Week.

August is also Black Business Month, a good time to promote and reach out to your black business insureds.

Late summer weather can be volatile. The dog days of summer are still capable of producing heat emergencies and strong summer storms. Talks to clients about lightning safety and flash flooding. Plus, National Hurricane season runs from Jun 1, 2018 – Nov 30, 2018, as a good time for families and businesses alike to focus on emergency preparation.

And as the month progresses, people’s thoughts move away from vacations and turn to Back to School and Back to Business. The National Safety Council Offers several Back To School Month tools that your customers may find useful, from videos to social media posts on topics like transportation safety, bullying prevention and playground safety.

We offer a few links and suggestions for August social media communications to get you started.
