September social media themes for your insurance agency: Emergency preparedness, back-to-school, fruit & veggies

September is packed with themes and events that offer the opportunity to reach out to your insureds via quick calls, snail mail reminders, or social media posts. It's back to school month, of course, but there's a much more going on than that. Every year after Labor Day, Emergency Preparedness Month kicks in with a different theme each week, leading up to the mid-month Prepareathon. It's an opportune time to remind both your commercial and personal customers to check their emergency prep and to remind them that hurricane season lasts until November. Offer tips for building an emergency kit, developing a family and business disaster plan, checking that vital documents are in order and ensuring the right insurance coverage. There's also a focus on several safety themes, such as Back-Pack Awareness Day and Farm Safety and Health Week. Plus, there are many health and wellness issues to promote this month, starting with "More Matters" Fruit & Veggies month, while farmers' markets are still in prime time. And don't miss the Internet's favorite: Talk Like a Pirate Day. We offer dates and links to jump-start your communications and social media campaigns.
