If so, your customers maybe interested in a special spa day you host on National Love Your Pet Day.Own a coffee shop? Then National Coffee Day could be an awesome opportunity to run a sale onlattes or do a flash Facebook promotion to drive some foot traffic to your cafe.Or perhaps you do financial planning or business succession planning. In that case you mightwant to highlight National Employee Appreciation Day on your blog to get some attention foryour thought leadership in that niche.Some national observance days are more popular than others, of course. You’ve probably neverheard of Espresso Day (November 23), and probably never will again. On the other hand, everybusiness owner knows Valentine’s Day — especially florists and candy shop owners.However, for small businesses, some of the lesser-known national holidays might be your bestmarketing opportunities. Here’s why. On a smaller national day you’re less likely to have your marketing campaignovershadowed by Big Mega Corp’s humongous marketing budget.Some funny national holidays just make people smile, like National Make Your Bed Day inSeptember. The fun factor alone could get you mileage (particularly if you run a furnitureor mattress store!).And weird national holidays like National Handbag Day on October 10 grab attentionthrough their sheer weirdness. Yet a day like that is perfect for marketing in a boutiqueor fashion eCommerce shop. Copyright 2003 - 2022, Small Business Trends LLC.
