The month of March is well known for St. Patrick’s Day and the March Madness NCAA basketball tournament. And it’s also a month full of reasons to celebrate your business and your employees with your social media marketing content.

March is a great time to celebrate the people who make up your venue’s team. Give them a shoutout for Employee Spirit Month (#EmployeeSpiritMonth) Women’s History Month (#NationalWomensHistoryMonth), World Compliment Day (#WorldComplimentDay) on March 1, National Employee Appreciation Day (#NationalEmployeeAppreciationDay) on March 5, and International Women’s Day (#InternationalWomensDay) on March 8.
