June has many events and awareness campaigns but most would not be relevant to promotions for a Tutoring or Coaching environment unless of course you are really into Carpenter Ants. Yes, June has Carpenter Ant Awareness Week but, I have left it off the list as not even I could spin that into a promotion that would not have everyone looking a trifle silly. Sorry if you are a huge Carpenter Ant fan!
Think how you could use one of the following campaigns to run a promotion for your existing products or perhaps run an open day, workshop or promotional extra to raise general awareness of your business. – As I say every month – Customers can come from anywhere!
Safety is the theme for many of the campaigns during June, some like Tire Safety Month are not listed, but Student Safety and Home Safety are both relevant and could be used to launch a promotion. But I am going to choose Flag Day as my pick this month.
I love Flag Day and I love the history behind it even more as it is connected to our industry. Did you know that Flag Day is believed to have been originated by BJ Cigrand, a school teacher from Fredonia, Wisconsin? You could get quite creative with this one.
I would arrange an enrollment drive and/or open day during the week of Flag Day; I would offer a special rate (using Flag Coupons for example) for those that signed up for a program, and you could expand it for those who show up wearing the Stars and Stripes.
As always, don’t forge to write yourself a fabulous Press Release and join in with other local businesses if they are marking the day in any way!
There are many more than listed here; I have listed 14 events that may be used as a promotion for tutoring, coaching and therapy.
1. Effective Communications Month.
2. Home Safety Month.
3. National Safety Month.
4. National Family Month.
5. Sports America Kids Month.
6. Dairy Month.
7. Sun Safety Week: First week of June.
8. International Men’s Month.
9. National Candy Month – I thought that was October by default, it is in my house!
10. National Student Safety Month.
11. Flag Day: June 14th
12. Take a kid Fishing Weekend: June 10th through June 12th.
13. Father’s Day: 3rd Sunday in June.
