September 2023: Dates for your diary and content ideas

1 September 2022

Crack out the pumpkin spiced lattes and pull on your cosiest jumper – September is here, ushering in the beginning of spooky season and a need for some extra spooky September content ideas!

Now it has to be said, September isn’t the most exciting month of the year when it comes to important dates or big events. But that doesn’t mean you can’t tap into what is going on, and it’s the perfect opportunity to start to look ahead to your (dare we say it) Christmas and holiday season content and begin planning your Christmas marketing strategy.


We’ve pulled together some of the biggest dates to watch out for in September, and added a few additional September content ideas that you could include in your digital or social media content this month.


September 2023

Friendship Month

Share the love by:


September 1st – 5th

5th September – International Day of Charity

If you’re looking to give a little back, there’s no better day to do it than International Charity Day.

Okay, this one is a quiet week.

So why not start to pull together some ideas for the rest of the year. Are there any competitions you want to run around Christmas time? Anything coming up that you want to get people signing up for?
