National Family Meal Month
The hottest month of the year and the last of the summer, August is also National Family Meal Month - a perfect time to take advantage of relaxed schedules and vacation days to hit the kitchen for some intense quality time and tasty meals before another school year sets in. It may be a little known designation, but for lack of official, calendar holidays this off-beat August cause could easily garner attention from traditional media outlets and bring it top-of-mind with consumers. Be sure to leverage this coverage by promoting all things close to the kitchen and the family. Think recipe books and cards, cookbooks for the college bound, essential cookware, after dinner family games, etc. Remember not all families are small and there’s no better occasion for bringing far away family close than a home cooked meal (or a whole month of them!) Don’t forget there’ll be all the scrap booking tools needed to capture that family quality time!
Hit the Back to School Crowd as Summer Vacation Ends
As the kids go back to school, this is the perfect time to promote backpacks, shoes, and clothing. Not to mention that this is also the best time to showcase textbooks for the older students. Typically about 80% of all textbooks sold are sold within the first 3 months of school starting.
Summer Ain’t Over Yet!
Summer is almost over, so make the most of it! Before the kids go back to school and the days start turning cold again, get out there and enjoy the summer sun and let eBay help!
