June is the month that Summer kicks off even though the beginning of summer techinally isn’t until June. You have kids getting out of school, summer camps, bar-b-ques, weddings… the list goes on.
I was just walking through Walmart this week and they have already started selling fans and swimming pools. Not to mention the fruit themed dishes hitting the shelves.

Topics around back to school, productivity for summer, summer activities for kids and family vacation planning to name a few.
My best performing campaigns for lead generation have typically been to landing pages. Blog posts haven’t converted subscribers as well but it’s worth a shot to test it for your audience.
Now is the time to start planning content for July & August. It’s time to start pinning for topics that are typically hot in July & August. Whether or not you are ready for it. Pinners are planners. They are planning ahead of time.
Typically you will start pinning about a topic 30-45 days in advance at a minimum.
If you are looking for content to create around these months you should consider some of the following:
Holidays/Events in June
Holidays/Events in July
Holidays/Events in August
These ideas aren’t the beginning and end of the list. Obviously, not everyone is in the same niche but this gives you an idea of what you can start pinning. If you are in the B2B niche think about what business owners are facing right now with Summer being here.
Working moms and dads might be looking for productivity tips, home office, delegating and outsourcing, passive income ideas and more.
Think about where your pinner is in their journey and pin what their pain points are going to be for that timeframe.
You may even want to launch a new opt-in or series around these themes. Now is the time to plan and get it ready to launch.
If you have older pins you can update to include some of these themes start doing that now.
Go back to older posts and update them with links to new seasonal content you’ve created.
Then create new pins with a seasonal theme and publish them.
