They say “April showers bring May flowers,” but I live in California where there were no showers. So, do we get flowers? I’m going off on a tangent…what May can bring is more success via video marketing. With Spring in full bloom, there are plenty of occasions and days to highlight to connect with audiences on social media.

This holiday is self-explanatory. Whether you grew up with a mother or mother figure, take the time to show appreciation on this day. For brands, this is a great time to promote deals that could double as a gift for mom or highlight some of the moms in your company. It’s also a great time to put together a slideshow with employees and their moms/mother figures.
May 12 – International Nurses Day
— Canadian Red Cross (@redcrosscanada) May 12, 2020
With the way the past year has gone, it’s only right nurses get their own day of appreciation. To be fair, they should be celebrated every day. Every May 12, the anniversary of Florence Nightingale’s birth, the whole world celebrates and shows its appreciation for nurses around the globe for what they do. If you’re a company in the healthcare industry, it’s worth taking time to create a GIF or video celebrating this day.
