When I stopped to consider August’s Marketing Calendar, I had a flashback to the warm summer days of haymaking with my family in the beautiful Derbyshire countryside.
(Yep, that’s me on the tyre swing… wheeee!)
On top of the sunshine and summer vibes, August is also Black business Month, a time to acknowledge & appreciate black-owned businesses!
Then, I thought about what summer means to my customers.
They are in the swing of catering for holidaymakers in the UK, launching healthy food products and supporting other businesses (B2B) with holiday staff, growth and legal aspects.
So, in my August’s Marketing Calendar, I’ve considered what’s happening this month that you can plan your marketing calendar around.

August is also know as Peach Month – who knew?
When Reagan was POTUS, he proclaimed August “Peach Month” and recommended that the people of the United States should incorporate this nutritious fruit into their diets!
