From updating your social media calendar to wading through the myriad of channels, you know that social media can be time-consuming for entrepreneurs.
Yet it’s also one of the best ways to connect with your target audience, increase your traffic, boost sales, and meet your overall marketing goals.
With a monthly social media content calendar, it’s much easier to keep up with the demands of social media marketing.
March Social Media Calendar 2023
With March just around the corner, take a look at our March 2023 social media calendar for small-business owners.
March 1: Share a Smile Day #ShareASmileDay
This one is easy enough and applies to pretty much all entrepreneurs. Share a photo of you and your team with big smiles on your faces, doing something you love to do. Better yet, get out in the community and share some smiles with your favorite local businesses or charities. Take a few photos and let your followers know what you were up to.
On this day, schools and libraries celebrate reading by encouraging students to read a book together. This is a great opportunity for small businesses to promote literacy, encourage employees to read more, or even create their own reading challenge for customers.

March 3: National Day of Unplugging (First Friday of March) #NationalDayOfUnplugging
Although “unplugging” might seem counterintuitive for entrepreneurs who are promoting their businesses through social media, encouraging a day of setting down phones can actually make you seem more authentic to your followers.
Create a post that highlights local spots in nature, local businesses, and other spots where connection, conversation, and time away from technology are encouraged.
March 4: National Grammar Day #NationalGrammarDay
Show off your grammar skills on this day with a grammar-related post. You could also share a list of common grammar mistakes that you see often on social media or explain how to use quotation marks correctly. Go ahead and let your inner grammar geek shine!
March 6: National Dentist's Day #DentistsDay
Publish a social media post on the benefits of having a dental checkup every year. You can also write about how to maintain your teeth and gums by following a healthy diet and taking care of yourself.
Or you can simply create an appreciation post for the dentists of the world who keep everyone’s pearly whites looking their best.
March 7: National Cereal Day #NationalCerealDay
Let’s face it: Most people love a good cereal, even if they don’t eat it all that often. Celebrate with a picture of your favorite cereal and the hashtag #nationalcerealday. You can also showcase your favorite brands or share some fun cereal facts.
Use your content calendar to plan posts for International Women's Day or other topics related to women.
You could share quotes from notable female leaders
You could share quotes from notable female leaders, create infographics that show notable accomplishments of women, or highlight the work that’s yet to be done. Women-owned small businesses may wish to highlight some facts about the company’s leader.
March 10: National Pack Your Lunch Day #NationalPackYourLunchDay
If you don't already have a packed lunch routine, now's the time to start! Take a video of yourself packing your lunch the night before so it’s ready to go when you head out the door in the morning. Or snap a photo of the lunch you packed before leaving home.

Time to spring forward! Remind your followers to set their analog clocks ahead by an hour when they go to sleep on Saturday night.
March 12: National Girl Scout Day #GirlScoutDay

March 14: Potato Chip Day #NationalPotatoChipDay
What’s not to love about potato chips? Create an homage to potato chips by featuring your favorite local businesses’ potato creations — from French fries to homemade chips.
Don’t forget to tag the businesses to increase your reach — and who knows? They might tag your business, too.
March 14: Pi Day #PiDay
Use this day as an opportunity to showcase your knowledge of math with fun facts about pi! You could also use the day to highlight any “pie”-related content; for instance, restaurants could create a $3.14 pizza special, or bakeries could bake a special Pi Day pie.
March 14: National Napping Day (the day after Daylight Savings) #NationalNappingDay
It only makes sense that National Napping Day would follow Daylight Savings. When you lose an hour of sleep, you need a good nap! Take a picture of your favorite napping spot and share it with your followers.

Hosting or attending any St. Patrick’s Day celebrations? Be sure to take some photos to commemorate the events and share them with your followers. You can also create a post highlighting local green-themed foods, drinks, parades, and family-friendly activities.
March 20: First Day of Spring #FirstDayofSpring
Spring is a time for renewal, so you want to make sure your social media content includes some fresh ideas. The first day of spring is a great way to kick off the new season with a fresh perspective.
It's also a great opportunity to share what's coming up in the spring and summer months with your followers.
March 21: World Poetry Day #WorldPoetryDay
Have any favorite poets? Are you a poet yourself (or wish you could be)? Share a poem or two to celebrate World Poetry Day, and invite your followers to share some of their favorites, too.
March 23: National Puppy Day #NationalPuppyDay
