Every social media marketer knows that planning ahead is only half the battle. However, when you have the planning side locked down, you can be ready to roll with what the other half brings.
That’s why we offer our monthly calendar giveaways highlighting what each month is bringing your way. Now it’s June, and it’s time to start the summer off right with fresh ideas and content.
June is packed with events and holidays you can use for any social media marketing plan. With summer comes the music festival season and some of your favorite sporting events around the globe.
Get planning now – and, if you haven’t already, check out our steps on how to build an awesome social media calendar. You can download your free June Calendar by clicking on the graphic below.
If you’re a beverage brand, nothing better compliments a hot summer day with a cold drink (shameless plug: Check out our Carlsberg Case Study). Tell your followers to enjoy a nice cold beverage in celebration of Marilyn Monroe’s birthday. The timeless fashion beauty was born on June 1, 1926.
This first weekend of June kicks off with a weekend filled with good vibes. The Governors Ball Music Festival is happening June 3-5 in New York City. This event features musical headliners such as Chance The Rapper, Phoenix, Schoolboy Q, and Tool. A lot of local and national brands get in on this big weekend.
The month’s first weekend also features one of soccer’s (or football’s depending one where you’re reading this) biggest events of the year. The UEFA Champions League final between Juventus and Real Madrid is on June 3. Juventus has shone despite losing one of its top players. Meanwhile, Real Madrid will hit the field with crowd pleaser, eye candy and popular meme muse, Cristiano Ronaldo. As a side note, the Black Eyed Peas will be adding an otherwise absent touch of ‘Murrica to the opening ceremony in Cardiff, Wales.

The second week of June promises more great moments in sports, including one of the biggest events in tennis. Before that though, June 5 is World Environment Day. Brands looking to simply capitalize on this event should proceed with caution: an ill-considered post from an inappropriate brand could go toxic. However, nonprofits and environmental groups should have a field day on this day.
June 8 is National Best Friends Day in the US, a great opportunity to make some connections. The weekend also features Women’s and then Men’s Finale in the French Open. Game on!
