The Oh-So-Good October Content Calendar for 2020

October. A big month, hopefully for us here in Melbourne it will mark the end of our lockdown - *here's hoping*. 

That also means Christmas is just three months away. I'm not sure whether to panic or to be thankful that the year 2020 is drawing closer to an end.

October is here and is so is our full stack of content ideas to help you

 To help you out with some content ideas, we've created our ultimate list to get you through.

To ensure you maximise the value out of our October Content Calendar:
Be sure to select dates that are relevant to your audience. Put yourself in their shoes and think about what they may want to see and know about.
Be sure to double check dates. Whilst we've already checked the days from our end. These dates may not be the same for every country and may change between years.
Pair the date or content idea with high quality visuals. If you're posting a video, a photo or a graphic... be sure that it isn't blurry and is high resolution.
1st October - International Coffee Day
A day where posting about your coffee is most definitely okay. Share your local coffee spot and be sure to tag and support them in your post.
2nd October - International Day of Non-Violence 

“An eye for an eye only ends up making the whole world blind” - Mahatma Gandhi. This day is held annually on Ghandi’s birthday to encourage peace. #nonviolenceday


3rd October

Nothing special but an excuse to post or use this in your content.
October 3rd - Means Girls GIF
4th October - Vodka Day

Also - the change over of Daylight Savings here in Melbourne, Australia. Time to change those clocks... if it doesn't automatically change for you.


5th October - World Teachers' Day

After the year our Teachers' have been through, they deserve a monthly World Teachers' Day. Take a moment to reach out and show your teacher some appreciation for all the work they've had to manage through a pandemic and virtual teaching.
