Star Wars Day is an informal commemorative day for Star Wars, held annually on 4 May. The day gathered much of its momentum from the saying ‘May the 4th be with you’— a play on the franchise’s iconic line ‘may the force be with you.’
This day has loads of potential for businesses selling toys, hobbies and collectables. But don’t think just because you don’t operate in this space your business can’t get involved in the fun of Star Wars Day. You’ll need to keep in mind trademarking laws as Star Wars and many of its characters are trademarked.
Change up your logo! Add a small reference to Star Wars, whether it be a stormtrooper head to replace an O in your business name or simply changing your business logo to include a galaxy background.
Share your favourite meme or quote from the franchise.
If you have the means to, launch a special Star Wars-themed item (for example a galaxy milkshake), and feature it on your social media.
*As always be sure to check your posts comply with trademark and copyright laws before proceeding.
Held annually on the first Thursday in May, World Password Day was created to raise awareness and promote the importance of protecting ourselves online with strong passwords.
For businesses, this provides a brilliant opportunity to, firstly, check up on their online security and secondly, remind their customers to do the same.
If you operate in the technology sector, sharing information around World Password Day is a no-brainer but other industries can easily get involved too. Here’s how.
Mother’s Day… it’s a day dedicated to recognising and thanking all the mothers and mother figures in your life. For many businesses, it’s a time for sales, giveaways and special promotions — all which should be confidently shared across your socials.
But, what about the actual day? Here are some ideas of what to share on social media for your business this Mother’s Day.
If you have a receptionist, you likely know just how much your business relies on them. National Receptionist Day was created to recognise and thank them for everything they do.
In 1993, the United Nations General Assembly marked the 15 May to be International Day for Families, and it has been recognised around the world every year since.
The day was first coined as a way to raise awareness issues faced by families around the world.
In Australia, local councils and community groups often put on family focused events for the day and promote the importance of family time.
It is important to note, when speaking of ‘families’, the United Nations extends the meaning of family to beyond biological.
17 May was marked as International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia and Biphobia (IDAHOBIT) in 1990 when the World Health Organization removed homosexuality from the Classification of Diseases and Related Health Problems.
The day celebrates LGBTQIA+ people globally and raises awareness for the work still needed to combat discrimination.
On 26 May 1998, the first National Sorry Day was held. The day was created to remember and acknowledge the mistreatment of Aborignial and Torres Strait Island people who were forcibly removed from their families, now known as The Stolen Generations.
National Sorry Day promotes the healing of the damages done during this dark chapter of Australian history.
Now this is a fun one! National Hamburger Day is one of those quirky days designed almost purely for marketing purposes and we’re a big fan!
Naturally, this is a great opportunity for hospitality businesses BUT just because you’re not in that industry doesn’t mean you can’t celebrate too.
World No Tobacco Day was created to raise awareness around the dangers of Tobacco. This day is rather niche and won’t be able to be part of many businesses’ content schedules. But, for those operating in the health and wellness space it may be an important day to acknowledge.
