October 2019: Holidays to Promote Your Business

September 9, 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 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 October’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 your bar knocks a dollar or two off of all vodka cocktails on the 4th. Or your bakery offers community classes on National Cake Decorating Day. Of course, don’t forget to pass out candy come Halloween time.
