June is recognized as a month-long celebration of pride in the LGBTQ+ community. This month is about taking pride in one’s sexuality as well as celebrating the accomplishments of the LGBTQ+ community and its figureheads. Using this opportunity to promote pride month-related sales, merch, or even just acknowledgment can go a long way towards presenting your business as an inclusive one. If you have LGBTQ+ staff that would feel comfortable, recognizing their work through an employee highlight would be an authentic piece of content to display as well. Providing a space for the LGBTQ+ community to have their voices heard should be a priority during this month.
6/1 – Global Running Day
We hit the ground “running” right at the start of June with Global Running Day! Today is the day to get out and be active with some exercise. Using your signage to post helpful running tips or promote new shoes and gear is a great way to increase your short-term revenue. In addition, videos can be used to give demonstrations or even walk your audience through some recovery recipes! If you have an active staff, getting them to share their favorite routes or routines will help your brand seem more personable. Encouraging activity also shows a vested interest in the well-being of your viewers.
6/3 – National Donut Day
After working up a sweat, it is time to reward ourselves with some tasty treats! National Donut Day is the perfect excuse to tease those tastebuds by promoting special donut deals through menu boards. Internal social media channels can have staff exchange their favorite donut recipes, or using QR codes to survey favorite donut shops are great ways to engage an audience. Fun holidays like this are good opportunities to get more creative with your signage. However, be sure that it does not get in the way of your branding guidelines or communication objectives.
6/4 – Shavuot
Shavuot is a Jewish holiday that celebrates the giving of the Torah on Mount Sinai. Since this is an especially important holiday for those who celebrate, it is equally important to ensure your content is implemented with respect. Simply posting historical accounts and facts about the Jewish faith can go a long way toward educating people about its significance. Jewish staff can also share their favorite traditions and meals they enjoy with family around this time. Not to mention, many history channels will be airing specials on the holiday as well. Using Live TV integration can help provide educational entertainment to your viewers during this time.
6/5 – National Cancer Survivors Day & World Environment Day
June 5 is a busy but momentous day. Celebrating both cancer survivors as well as the environment is both a day of acknowledgment and giving back. Highlighting the stories of cancer survivors and displaying health tips or supportive resources shows an interest in helping the community. The same principle can be applied to World Environment Day. Instructing viewers on how to be more eco-friendly and detailing the measures your business takes to reduce their carbon footprint demonstrates care for the world, and will make you a more respectable organization.
6/11 – Make Life Beautiful Day
Did you know that only 14% of American adults consider themselves very happy? While this is indeed a downer of a statistic, it also indicates that it is never a bad time to introduce some joy into someone’s day! Use this day to employ some more light-hearted content in your layouts. Fun facts, jokes, and motivational quotes can give your audience a much-needed boost. Finding new ways to engage your audience can also increase morale and result in favorable action. If you can associate your brand with positive emotions, you are much more likely to get repeat customers and positive word-of-mouth.
6/14 – Flag Day & World Blood Donor Day
Today honors the flag of our country while also acknowledging the contributions of blood donors. Providing historical facts can help viewers understand the significance of the flag and why it is so important to our country’s values. Meanwhile, displaying blood drive locations and highlighting fellow staff donors is a great way to draw attention to a good cause! Doing so can position your business as a credible and ethically sound company that consumers trust.
6/19 – Father’s Day & Juneteenth
June 19 is yet another busy day in the first month of summer! People everywhere will be celebrating their fathers and thanking them for all their hard work. However, Juneteenth will also honor the emancipation of slavery in the United States. Live TV, famous quotes, and expert testimonials help educate viewers on the importance of this holiday. Additionally, sports scores, news headlines, and other entertainment options can help keep dads glued to the screen.
6/21 – National Selfie Day & Summer Solstice
This is a wonderful case of two holidays on the same day perfectly complementing each other! The summer solstice is the onset of summer and is also the longest day of the year. What better way to mark the occasion than with a golden hour sunset? You can then encourage your viewers to do the same and post their pics on social media with a company hashtag. These can then be displayed on your players. This in turn will motivate others to join in on the fun, increasing your digital presence.
