We’re almost halfway through the year and it’s time to plan June’s social media. To help you get started, we’ve curated 83 June social media ideas for you, complete with hashtags, Gifs to download and some graphics, too. Simply select a few days that work for your business; they can be serious, aimed at raising awareness around a particular issue, or humorous to create some engagement amongst your audience. Feel free to be creative and to put your own spin on a day – there are no rules, so be brave and do what works for you.
If you need any help in using these June social media ideas, then head over to our blog.
So, within this June blog, for every day of the month, you’ll find at least one (often several!) social media ideas. We’ve included holidays, awareness days, both national and international, for you to use. Why not use some of the days as the starting point for conversations with your followers? Ask their opinions, ask questions, create polls…the possibilities are endless.
If you’re looking to create quality content, but don’t want to spend a whole heap of time doing it, then read on!

June Social Media Ideas Day by Day
1st Say Something Nice Day. Today is the day to recognise the power of words and to use them in a positive way. Who could you tag in your social media and give them a virtual pat on the back? Maybe this is a great opportunity to encourage followers to leave a positive review on someone’s social media? Remind them of the positive impact this can have on small businesses. Here’s a nice graphic to encourage the right sentiment amongst your audience.

2nd National Rocky Road Day. Who doesn’t love a sweet treat? Did you know the first Rocky Road cake was made in Australia in 1853? Apparently made from confectionery items that had been spoiled by their journey from Europe, mixed with nuts and low-quality chocolate. Yum! It’s not looking quite so appetizing now, is it?
Also Parents Day, Global Running Day, Leave the Office Early Day
3rd Repeat Day. The day when we recognise and seek out those activities that we love so much that we want to do them again and again. This would be a great opportunity to create a poll or some popular activities and ask your audience, if they had to repeat one over and over, which would it be?

Also, Apple Strudel Day, Dump the Pump Day
18th Take Back the Lunchbreak Day. Another wellbeing day, this one focused on getting us away from our computers, stopping eating at our desks or skipping lunchtime completely. How often do you sneak a sarnie at your desk?

19th National Martini Day. Who doesn’t love a martini? That combination of vermouth and gin or vodka has been a popular tipple since the 1800s, would you believe, with famous fans including Ernest Hemingway, Clark Gable, Humphrey Bogart and, of course, James Bond?
