Happy October!

Every month we research what’s going to be trending in the media and in our industry so we can brainstorm new and engaging content. Why? If you jump in and create content related to what’s trending, your posts are more likely to get more views, likes, and comments. If you use trending hashtags and the correct CTAs you’ll increase website traffic, which can lead to new clients. Who wouldn’t want that?

Here’s what we found for this month:

Breast Cancer Awareness Month

October is all about Breast Cancer Awareness! Get out and go on a 5k with your team. Document it to share on your social media afterward to show how you get involved. Make sure you use the hashtag, #BreastCancerAwareness in the Instagram posts. Think pink all month long! There are tons of activities that go on for families, friends, or anyone to go to.

The whole month is dedicated to raising awareness, celebrating survivors, remembering those that we’ve lost to breast cancer, and raising money to help find a cure. So get out there and make a difference!

World Homeless Day

October 10th is World Homeless Day. This is when we get to participate in Socktober. In October, it starts to get a little chilly outside and something homeless shelters lack is a decent amount of socks. Socktober was started by the creator of Kid President and was started to raise awareness of the needs of the homeless people in America.

So this is where you come in, start a sock drive in your office. Take it around your building, expand it to local schools, other local businesses. Any and all help for #Socktober is incredible and helpful for the community!

Premiere of the New Joker Movie

The movie premieres October 4th and is already getting rave reviews! It won the top prize at the Venice Film Festival and there are people starting to give it Oscar buzz. Time to see if Joaquin Phoenix ranks above Heath Ledger for people’s favorite Joker!

Get the people in your office to put on their best Joker laugh! Try to beat the ones in this video, good luck!

Well there you have it, that’s the trending topics for October! Go make some really awesome content. Leave a comment if you see any other trends coming up that we missed!
