To help you plan your March content calendar, we've shared six awesome and inspiring ways to celebrate Women's History Month on your social platforms. Get ready to crush your Instagram game next month!
1. Share good vibes: post and repost #girlboss quotes!
This is a simple yet effective way to create valuable content for your social accounts. There are a TON of female-empowering quotes out there, so all you have to do is create a branded graphic displaying quotes that resonate with your brand and with female empowerment.
A few of our favorites include:
“Do one thing every day that scares you.” -- Eleanor Roosevelt
“A girl should be two things: who and what she wants.” -- Coco Chanel
“Each time a women stands up for herself, without knowing it possibly, without claiming it, she stands up for all women.” -- Maya Angelou
“I want every girl to know that her voice can change the world.” -- Malala Yousafzai
2. Highlight your female employees and showcase their role within the company.
Celebrate the women behind your brand by giving them a shoutout on social media. This can be in the form of a social media post (photo or even video!) that showcases their role, their story, or whatever you (or they) choose to share!
3. Thank the women who inspire you.
Give a big social media thank you to inspirational women. Engage with them on their accounts (DM, comment, or reply to a story) to show them gratitude and let them know how they have inspired. You may even want to create a #WomensHistoryMonth Instagram story slideshow, with a personal shoutout to all the #girlboss women you know! Or, simply create a Women’s History Month “Thank You” branded graphic, and tag all of the phenomenal women you would like to thank.
4. Hold a "pay-it-forward" campaign geared toward women.
We all know the power of a pay-it-forward campaign, so why not jump on the opportunity to create a kindness campaign that empowers women? Brainstorm a campaign that fits your brand, and get that ripple effect started using social media!
5. Donate to an organization that supports girls.
There are a ton of awesome organizations that support and empower girls and women, so why not select one and donate a portion of your March profits to it! Feel free to let your followers know about your decision to donate, as it may empower them to do likewise.
6. Interview and share the stories of strong women.
Empowered women empower women. Interview and feature like-minded women and feature them on your blog (if you have one), and your social media accounts, and celebrate their inspiring stories!
