Spring has finally burst onto the scene, bringing hope for new beginnings. With April showers promising a season of growth for the flowers and your business, it's time to spring into action. Make the most of this season's energy and plant the seeds of success with our April marketing calendar, designed to help small business owners like you tap into original ideas to promote and celebrate their company. 

April Fool's Day (April 1)


Laughter and fun are okay at work! If you're looking to add a bit of fun to April Fool's Day in the office, here are some ideas: 

  • Organize a Mystery Lunch: Plan a lunch for employees with fun, unexpected food choices like a sweet pizza with cookie dough crus and frosted cream cheese or desserts disguised as savory dishes. Eating a good meal can boost dopamine hormone levels, causing a person to feel rewarded and motivated. This playful twist may surprise your team and boost morale. 

  • Decor Revamp: Temporarily redesign the office with a funny theme. Being a little bit silly at work is never a bad thing. Just make sure the pranks are friendly and inclusive to ensure everyone has fun.  Read about another way to mark a "Fun at Work Day."

Day of Hope (April 3)


To celebrate the internationally recognized Day of Hope at the office, organize activities that promote positivity and innovative thinking, such as:

  • Organize Goals & Inspiration Session: Host a short meeting where you'll encourage the discussion of personal and professional aspirations during a regular meeting. Ask each person to share a story or quote that motivates them. 

  • Community Service Project: Rally the troops to work together in a local charity event or create care packages for those in need. Find more ideas on celebrating the “Day of Hope.” Read the best hard-work motivational quotes.

Get to Know Your Customers Day (April 18)


Mark this day in a fun and beneficial way for your business. 

  • Customer Appreciation Deal: Create special deals or discounts for today only.

  • Send "Thank You" Notes: Simply saying "thank you" can go a long way. Send individual "thank you" letters, cards, or emails to customers to express your appreciation for your clients' support.

  • Encourage the Customers' Social Media Engagement: Use social media to ask customers engaging questions, share experiences or inspiring quotes, and encourage them to share information about themselves.

Earth Day (April 22)


Celebrating the Earth is always a fantastic idea. An easy idea is to encourage employees to cycle, walk, or take public transportation that day. Some additional ideas:

  • Planting Activity: Give each person a small plant to tend at their desk, representing growth and hope. You can also plant trees on your business site.

  • Host an Educational Workshop: Invite an environmental expert to speak or hold an online workshop on sustainable practices. 

  • Declutter the Office: Invite everyone to organize and declutter their working spaces. Encourage your social media followers to share their decluttered working spaces.

  • Employee Spotlight: Highlight employees' contributions through social media or in-office displays.

  • Professional Development: Organize workshops or seminars to help your team improve their skills and strengths. 

  • Host Thank You Gathering: Hold a small party to thank your team for their hard work. You could even hire local caterers to help out another small business.
