Tips for Creating May Content Quickly & Easily

Creating content can be time consuming and sometimes can seem to never end! But if you get smart about it, schedule ahead and use tips like templates and batching, you can create loads of content quickly and easily. Try these tips:

  1. Use templates. If you're not a designer and don't want to spend hours and hours designing, then it's simple… use templates. Luckily this post is packed with templates that you can use in Canva plus ideas for how to find more templates. Don't create from scratch unless you need to – use a template and simply change out the written or visual content (the text/message, image or graphic). Then you're good to go in way less time! Check out this post for some tips.
  2. Use batching. Don't just create one image, create 10-20. If you are creating a quote, why not create more than one? If you're creating a video, then do more than one using the same style. You'd never bake just one cupcake, so don't just create one image. Once you sit down and start creating content, it's easier to do a whole batch of visuals.
  3. Create short videos to post on social media – Social video or anything that moves is super popular. So why not create more video? It works really well for engagement on just about any social platform. So make sure you include animated visuals and videos in your content. Lucky for you, Canva has an AWESOME set of video features now from animated stickers to animated effects on images or entire designs to multi-scene video templates. It's all in one place in the one tool but if you need more ideas, then check out this post.
  4. Create content that is easily consumed. As I said, we like to scroll through our feed, so content like quotes, tips, observational humour, quick how-to videos work great for engagement.
  5. Create content around holidays in question – a top 5 list, a fun GIF or a quote.

The 1st Wednesday in June is Global Running Day #GlobalRunningDay.

3. National Egg Day #Egg Day – Celebrate with your favourite recipe containing eggs, or perhaps let loose with some egg puns!

And after having Macoron Day in May, now we have National Chocolate Macaroon Day for it's coconut-filled sweet counterpart.

It's also National Donut Day #DonutDay #NationalDonutDay. Nom nom nom – all things donuts. Today is a social media dream for content because … who doesn't love Donuts? It's celebrated on the first Friday of June each year.

4. National Cheese Day – Break out the cheese puns! If you're a cheese lover, today is what you've been training for and it's likely a good number of people in your audience will love cheese too. So, post all the cheese things! Use #NationalCheeseDay or popular hashtags for your favourite cheese!

5. Apple II Day – today is a day to celebrate the day that the Apple II computer went on sale. June 5, 1977. It was a huge 4KB of RAM (or you could upgrade to a massive 48KB). Ponder that for a moment! And, there began the legend that defined computer use for generations of fans!

Today is also Hot Air Balloon Day if you want to create some content around these graceful balloons in the sky! Definitely instagrammable! Use #HotAirBalloonDay.

And don't forget World Environment Day. Ready for you to post all things about protecting and valuing our environment.

It's also National Cancer Survivor’s Day #NCSD2020 held on the first Sunday in June. This day is meant to celebrate the life of those who have survived cancer and highlighting that life after cancer diagnosis can be positive, rewarding and inspiring.

6. Higher Education Day #HigherEducationDay – you can post about your audience and ask them if they completed any higher education, or perhaps start a discussion about the rising costs of education, especially in the US.

And for many around the world, it's a time to remember the Normandy landing and D-Day held annually on the 6th of June anniversary.

7. National Chocolate Ice-Cream Day – do we need a reason? Probably not.

And for the Gen X-ers, it's also VCR Day. Do you remember? I do… it revolutionised our TV-watching potential and experience!

8. World Ocean’s Day – #WorldOceansDay – find out how you can post about World Ocean's Day on the official website. It's all about ocean celebration and protection and collaboration for a better future. And it's a great day to post your awesome beach/ocean/wave/surfing pics!

Here's an ocean inspired quote template:

Don't have any great ocean shots of your own? Try one of the major conservation organisations on Giphy. They have loads of GIFs that help to remind us about protecting our oceans. Like some narwhals or ocean creatures from the National Geographic Channel GIF collection.

The WWF UK also has some fun GIFs to remind us about who we are helping when we protect our oceans:

It's also Best Friend's Day. Celebrate friends everywhere – share a quote or a story or ask your audience to share their best friend story or tag a best friend!

9. Donald Duck Day – #DonaldDuckDay – Disney fans unite. It's time to celebrate one of the world's well-loved classic Disney characters. Time for a Disney quote?

10. National Herb and Spice Day – Add a little herb and spice to your social media posts. Food bloggers and hospitality businesses, this day is made for you! #HerbandSpice. Then wash something yummy down with Iced Tea as it's National Iced Tea day.

And it's Ball Point Pen Day, so a post about writing, the history of the humble ball point pen (especially when we rely on technology so much!) might be fun! Or share a writing-inspired or author-inspired quote.

11. Corn on the Cob Day – June has a good share of food “days” and today is all about delicious, buttery, Corn on the Cob. #CornOnTheCobDay.

It's also National Rosé Day for the pink wine lovers out there.

DC Entertainment declared June 12 as Superman Day in 2013 to honor the creation of the world's most famous superhero, two days before the release of the movie “Man of Steel.” The day was initially called “Man of Steel Day” but later became “Superman Day.”

If you're a light-bodied wine person, then it's also Red Rose Day for all things roses.

It's also World Gin Day (held annually on the 2nd Saturday of June). So many drink celebration options!

13. Weed Your Garden Day – It could be that your audience is full of people that love gardening. Or maybe it's time for a funny gardening post. Either way, today is #WeedYourGardenDay. Let's be honest here, there aren't many days of celebration on the 13th June so this is the best pick of the bunch!

14. World Blood Donor Day – Today is World Blood Donor Day #WorldBloodDonorDay. Perhaps a reminder post about donating blood would be a good thing to post today, so you can help to spread the word about something important in any country. It's also National Bourbon Day … probably best not consumed before donating blood, just sayin'.

But it's also International Bath Day, and that might be a good thing to indulge in after giving blood. And did you know how this day came to be? It's believed to be the day that Archimedes (Mathematician & scientist) discovered something interesting. He found that the water levels in his bath tub rose as he got in and led to the discovery that the volume of an object could be measured by being submerged in water.

Or just use it as an excuse to have a bath!
