    We all know that babies, food, and animals are usually highly engaging visual content for social media. On May 2, you can take advantage of “Take a Baby to Lunch Day” by posting a fun picture of you at lunch with (a) your own little one, (b) your grandchild or (c) borrow a friend’s baby for a photo opp! But wait! Go old school and dig out an actual picture of you with your kid at lunch for a Back-In-The-Day post and watch the engagement soar! BONUS POINTS: if you’re in the restaurant business, take pix of all the patrons with their babies OR encourage them to tag you in their posts then share to your stories. Win-Win-Win!!

    5/17 –  National Pizza Party Day

    #NationalPizzaPartyDay. No reason is ever needed to have a pizza party, but just in case you need one, today’s your day!

    Three simple ideas to create engaging content for today:

    1. Order pizza for your team and share pictures or videos of them enjoying a slice. This would work perfectly for a LinkedIn post!
    2. Shoutout/tag the small business you ordered pizza from! 
    3. In the pizza biz? Create some videos of your pies in the process, from stretching/tossing the dough, to pizza peels sliding into/out of the oven, to a slow-motion of the pizza cutter. Make people crave your creation!

      1. Show How You’re Building Leaders Beyond the Office
      • #GrowingLeaders Go beyond your four walls and showcase your commitment to leadership development in the community. Share photos or videos from events you sponsor, like a local youth leadership program, or workshops you host on leadership skills. Show how you’re making a positive difference!
      1. Bite-Sized Leadership Inspiration
