‘Tis the (new) season! For many, September means the start of a new school year, the beginning of autumn (9/22), fresh television, and the kickoff of football season. But the beginning of fall doesn’t mean you can’t get ahead of the game! Sign up to receive the monthly Social Sidekick emails sent straight to your inbox so you work all upcoming social holidays, hashtags, and world events into your content calendar weeks in advance. That way you can apple-pick and PSL your way through the autumn without resorting to #basic social media strategies.
