We’re both grateful to have made it through another month in this crazy world and in total disbelief (and maybe slight denial) that it is indeed August already.
But, as always, a new month brings a new focus, new energy, and new growth. ✨
This blog post is here to give you 5 new content prompt ideas and inspiration for August, straight from our monthly content calendar over in the Stock House member toolkit. You can use these ideas for social media captions, as the beginning of an email newsletter, or as an idea to expand on in an August blog post.
We hope this lightens your marketing load a bit, and remember, you get instant access to a detailed monthly content calendar every single month when you become an official Styled Stock House member.
This magical toolkit is saving members time and energy every month. Hooray for that insider life!
We’ve pulled a few prompt ideas from the August 2021 Content Calendar for you to put to use below.

We’ll see you on the inside! 🙌🏼
– AUGUST MARKETING PROMPTS –
Use the below marketing prompts to help you show up across social media this month.
1. WEEKEND CHALLENGE
Share this morning how you intend to spend this weekend, or challenge your peeps to spend it a certain way – i.e. throwing their dang phone in the closet and unplugging, writing a letter to someone they love or to their gosh dang representatives, going for a nature walk, dancing!, creating and reading and writing and baking and cooking, supporting local or small businesses, swimming, doing whatever makes them feel like a joyous, carefree child again or rediscovering what actually makes them feel that way, watching ‘Virgin River’ on Netflix, taking the most rejuvenating, self-loving bath ever…
Declare how you’ll spend this weekend and challenge your audience to do some of the same.
2. NATIONAL BOOK LOVERS DAY – AUGUST 9TH
We love a book-related holiday around here! 📖
This is a perfect chance to share your current favorite reads, ask your people what they’re reading lately, or the most influential books in your career or life so far.
Further challenge for you… Make this one an Instagram Reel! This is the perfect type of quick, punchy, engaging information that suits an IG Reel perfectly.
3. BACK TO SCHOOL
Believe it or not, but it’s that time of year again… Time to pack those backpacks and gather those supplies, gear up for cooler weather and refocus on the fall season ahead.
How can you connect your product or service to the back-to-school mindset?
Does anything you offer or create serve your audience during this season? Even if your business has nothing to do with school in the traditional sense, you can definitely capitalize on the reenergized, more structured, ready-for-a-refresh energy ahead.
4. MENTALLY I AM…
Sometimes we find that our mind is on an ENTIRELY different track than our actual physical selves.
Lean into that today. Are you 3 months ahead with a new product/course launch? Are you on a beach somewhere, holding a an iced cold cocktail? Are you thinking about where you were a year ago?
Share that mental state with your people today. You never know who will be there with you!
5. WHAT’S BOTHERING YOU?
Chances are there’s something about your industry, whether you’re product or service based, that totally irritates you, that you 100% disagree with and do differently. Today we want you to speak to THAT.
This requires you to draw the line in the sand here… To be clear about what you believe and don’t believe. Be bold and stand in your convictions today.
You might just be surprised at the community and connection that comes forth.
And DON’T FORGET these important AUGUST dates as well!
