October marketing has a wide variety of national days and weeks for your brand to celebrate. It’s the beginning of the last quarter so the words “fall” or “Halloween” usually come to mind. While these topics remain very effective to include in your content calendar, injecting other topics to convey emotions is much more ideal instead of filling your calendar with pumpkin-themed posts all throughout the month.
We have prepared a list of creative October marketing content ideas for you so you can plan ahead and start getting inspired!
Halloween is the biggest holiday of the month and is one of the top annual holidays brands look forward to to promote their brand. Halloween is a big business–with 1 out of 2 Americans decorating their homes and 3 out of 10 preparing to attend a Halloween party each year, you can bet that by this time a lot of netizens are now cruising the social media space to find inspiration.
There’s a plethora of Halloween-themed content you can explore – from Halloween party food and costume ideas, home decor trends, Halloween-themed home office tips, spooky videos, and so much more!
The pandemic has hit us hard not just our physical health but mental health as well. Because everyone is advised to stay indoors, the feeling of isolation, loss of income, and fear has triggered mental health conditions in a lot of people. It is now more than ever that we show support and compassion to those fighting their battles. Help raise the awareness so that more and more people break the stigma of mental health.
Coffee is arguably the most loved beverage in the world. For coffee lovers, it represents more than just a morning drink. It’s a community, livelihood, tradition, and passion not just from the drinkers but from the brewers, baristas, and farmers all over the world. This 2021, the International Coffee Organization is launching “Coffee’s Next Generation,” a global initiative targeting talented and motivated young people and entrepreneurs in the coffee sector. Celebrate this day by sharing stories of hope, of change, and how to make a positive impact for the future in the coffee industry.

Post your favorite dessert recipe, collaborate with a brand and throw a virtual pastry party, or simply post a gram-worthy homemade dessert! It’s the day of satisfying everyone’s sweet tooth, so make your post worth drooling over!
