One last thing…please add any other ideas in the comments below!

Here is our top 5 favorite ideas for this month

1. Veteran’s Day on November 11th

Veteran’s Day is a day to celebrate all the war veterans across the nation who has served our country. A day to honor all of those we are proud to call our family member, our coworker, our client, our neighbor or our friend.  There are war veterans everywhere you look who have all gone through something that civilians will never understand.

IDEA: Take a moment today to recognize someone within your community for their brave acts in making our country safe for your business to be up and running. That special person might just be someone in your company who is making a difference for you.

2. Electronic Greeting Card Day on November 17th

This day is meant to be a fun day to send ecards to everyone. With some many types of ecards, there are enough to go around and send everyone you know something different.

IDEA: Send out an e-card to your clients thanking them for being your client. You will get them smiling while thinking of your company.

3. Black Friday on November 29th

Black Friday is the largest shopping day in the United States. There is literally a world of possibilities to market Black Friday and get more sales. You can also have fun promoting the days leading up to this day.

IDEA: You can do a daily countdown to your sale, highlight different products and services that you offer that will be discounted that day, or mention stories from last year’s Black Friday.

4. Small Business Saturday on November 30th

This day originated 3 years ago in the effort to get people to not just shop at the big brand named companies on the biggest holiday shopping weekend of the year. It’s a day we can band together and support our local business and better our communities.

IDEA: If you are a small business, write about your journey to creating your own company. Really personalize it! You can write a blog about your company’s background or throw out “Did You Know?” facts about your company on social media sites. Make it in a form of questions to get people involved and engaging with you to try and guess the information about your business. Have facts that could beneficial to them through a fun environment.

5. National Writing Month

National Novel Writing Month goes through the whole month of November. This project is used to challenge people to write 50,000 words in a month. The point is to push people beyond their writing limits.

IDEA: I challenge you to take this opportunity to push yourselves to write as well.There is no need to write 50,000 words, but rather meaningful content that will get readers interested. Write encouraging words to your fellow participants out there to keep on writing. If you are a company who sells laptops, use this content to drive more sales.  If you own a bookstore, mention how books open the window to knowledge. If you sell office supplies, write about the different items you will need to write, ie a pencil, paper, or a comfortable chair to sit in while you write.
