An Upward Trend In A Downward Market, Part 4

I was having so much fun with yesterday's post, I just have to continue and have some more fun with the Brownielocks wonderful website tool and using it to create prosperity in our businesses by using them for unusual promotions and events.

So, I'm looking at September on their website for some promotional ideas, although you will have to move quickly, or plan for October. I say, do it now and do it quick, because you need it now, right? Pick one and go with it!

You sell baby items? It is Baby Safety Month. Sell food? It is Go Wild During California Wild Rice Month and also National Rice Month. Have a restaurant? It is National Chicken Month. Sell pianos? It is National Piano Month.

Have a restaurant? It is National Waffle Week (almost over already). Sell books? It is Banned Books Week - Celebrating the Freedom to Read 9-27 through 10-4. Sell office supplies? It is National Love Your Files Week the 21st through the 27th.

Sell candy? You must prepare for International Chocolate Day on the 13th! I'm getting prepared as we speak. And I'm really stoked about National White Chocolate Day on the 22nd. My favorite. Have a deli? Get excited for National Salami Day on the 7th. Have a pet store? Who could forget Responsible Dog Ownership Day on the 20th and Dog Scouts of America on the 26th. Sell gifts? It is Wife Appreciation Day on the 20th and National Good Neighbor Day on the 28th. And, this is one of my most favorite sale days: Talk Like A Pirate Day on the 19th. Ayya Matie!

Whoever said you can't just have so much fun doing business? Of course you can. It can be a blast. You get to choose. Seriousness is no fun. Let's have a ball and make some money too!
