May 2019: Holidays to Grow Your Business

April 15, 2019 - By Emily Potter

Here at Hatswork, we’re always looking for new ways to help you promote your business. So, each month, we provide you with a list of National Days you can consider incorporating into your strategy to grow your business, whether that’s a social media campaign, an internal employee celebration, a customer spotlight, or something completely different.

So, without further ado, here are May’s National Days. Start thinking about each of these and simple, inexpensive ways you can use them to build a positive brand image in the minds of your customers.

Maybe you support young entrepreneurs during National Lemonade Day. You could host a food drive in your offices on May 11th. On the 21st you can pay your waitstaff the full minimum wage.
