Here’s your September Marketing Calendar, full of ideas and inspiration in the month ahead.

Showing a September Calendar, with a cup of tea and leaves showcasing Autumn

The month of September celebrates an array of celebrations, and is the time to start up again after the refreshing warm Summer! In fact, September is self-improvement month, take this time to reflect on you and your business to understand the steps that need to be taken.

It’s ‘Organic’ September, you find out more from the Soil Association website. It’s also ‘Sourdough’ September, so I’ve found you a great article here on the Delicious Magazine website.

September is also Alzheimer’s awareness month. To find how you can raise awareness and support this month, take a look at Alzheimer’s Society.

This month, children return to school and for a lot of businesses I speak to, it feels like the first month of the year. As a self-confessed stationery geek, I love shopping for new notebooks, pens and other bits and bobs.
