Spring marketing ideas

Cook Up New Ideas to Rejuvenate Your Marketing Calendar


March is the ideal month to focus on gratitude, rejuvenation, and celebration, with the transforming energy of spring practically palpable in the air. We understand that being a small business owner entails various duties and responsibilities, so we'd like to help spark ideas to create engaging content for your website and social media.



Employee Appreciation Day (March 1)


The first Friday in March is an official National Employee Appreciation Day. Mark it on your business calendar and give thanks or appreciation to your team. Here are some ideas for inspiration:


  • Organize a thank you lunch: Surprise and pamper your employees with a festive lunch to show appreciation for their efforts.

  • Offer a half-day off: Even better, include a wellness package, treating your employees with spa vouchers or yoga class passes.

  • Plan a team-building activity: A cooking class, indoor games, or outdoor sports competition can be a great way to foster companionship and fun. These gestures show appreciation, making employees feel valued and recognized.

  • Arrange a mindfulness class: Hire a mindfulness coach to teach your employees stress and anxiety reduction. This gesture makes team members feel relaxed and energized. It demonstrates your company's dedication to employee well-being, making it a true win-win!

St. Patrick's Day (March 17)


Many of us—Irish or not—are excited about our yearly St. Paddy's traditions and festivities. Here's some inspiration to celebrate the holiday with your team and promote cultural appreciation in a fun and inclusive way.

Host a Potluck: Invite employees to bring dishes inspired by Irish cuisine. Decorate the lunchroom with shamrocks and green balloons to set the festive mood.

Wear Green: Organize a "Best Green Outfit" contest to encourage everyone to wear green. Offer prizes for the most creative outfits.

Have a Tasting Session: End the workday with a tasting session featuring Irish teas and snacks. The Irish love their beer. But they are also steady tea drinkers, drinking from four to six cups of tea each day. So, drink Irish Breakfast Tea or something green to celebrate St. Patty's at work. (In this article, learn more about the Irish tea culture.)

First Day of Spring (March 19)


Celebrating the First Day of Spring is an excellent opportunity to break the monotony of daily routine, foster a sense of community, and boost your team's morale.


  • Have a picnic: Organize an outside lunch or picnic if the weather permits to welcome the spring and celebrate the renewal and inspiration it brings.

  • Host a Spring-themed workshop: Gardening is one of the best ways to connect with nature, reduce stress, and improve mood and well-being. Organize a gardening workshop that teaches employees how to pot plants and start their own gardens. Provide seeds and pots for participants. Get inspired with 45 cheerful Spring quotes to brighten your day.

  • Sponsor a Spring photography class: Offer spring-inspired mindful photography courses. Mindful photography combines mindfulness with a camera or smartphone lens to become more consciously aware of and connected to the present moment. The goal is to capture the essence of spring through the lens and get employees to pay more attention to their feelings and senses, which will help them focus and feel relaxed.

  • Spark a Spring cleaning: Set up a "spring cleaning" day for the office to get rid of clutter, get things in order, and maybe even give away old supplies to local charities. Did you know that decluttering also has some amazing mental health benefits? Learn more about it here.
