2. Promote seasonal essentials.

Camping, gardening, trekking, BBQ – there is a number of activities associated with spring. If you produce any products or services applicable for such activities, put them upfront or run a separate campaign with a focus on them only.

Content topic ideas

3. Add floral imagery.

Nothing sets the spring mood better than an elegant bouquet of flowers. If your service hardly resonates with any floristic patterns, consider using at least one element (petal, blooming branch, leaf, etc.) to give your campaigns a bit of springtime vibes.

4. Give useful tips.

Gardening advice, styling sessions, spring skin care routine, sun protection, renewal design – explain the subscribers how to use your product this month with maximum effect.
