🚀 Pro Tip: It helps you and your team keeping a clear overview of upcoming days and assists you to report better online and offline performance. How? Use our template to create a social media content calendar for your brand. List all the social network profiles you want to post from, i.e. Facebook, Instagram, Google My Business, LinkedIn, Twitter, etc. for the whole month.
Next, schedule your posts with the AreTheyHappy publishing tool or whichever social media publisher your company uses. It allows you to schedule content to automatically publish. It’s one more task that you can automate and tick off from your workload.
Finally, measure the engagement of each post and see what worked well, what was an unexpected success, and what should be improved. Gather input from your colleagues who talk directly with the customers, as they may have some insights that will help you better understand the stone-cold metrics provided by social platforms.

World Vegan Month ☘
Veganism shows no signs of slowing down, and November is a great opportunity for you to shine a light on any unique vegan-friendly food on your menu. Also, by preparing a few posts that you stagger over the entire month, you can maximize this “foodie month” and also do your bit to increase awareness for healthier diets and more sustainable ways of living. For many of today’s customers, the fact that a company cares about the planet is important. You can choose to run a special on takeaway delivery all month if it applies to you. 🙂
November 2nd: National Sandwich Day 🥙
Do you have a special sandwich on the menu, i.e. slow-cooked pork, a vegan twist or do you use locally sourced produce in your sandwiches? Let your customers know asap! You can choose to run a special on take-away or delivery this week if it applies to you. 🙂
November 23rd: National Espresso Day ☕️
It’s Monday, a perfect day to promote National Espresso Day, keep your followers awake and fill them with energy for the entire week. Create posts that include offers, happy hours or just photos of your best steaming and inviting cups of espresso.
Special Mention: Thanksgiving 🦃
This might be an atypical Thanksgiving for many but it can be a chance to try something new as well. Bring the holiday feast to your customer’s table by promoting your delivery services early in the month.
Even if you are not a US restaurant, it’s a great opportunity to talk about getting together, diversity, and sharing the good and bad as a community.
