Summer Marketing Themes for Your Craft Business -

Summer Marketing Themes

Use these marketing themes throughout the Summer months in your products, social media posts, and promotions.

  • Vacation/Staycation – With school out of session for most across the USA, it’s time to pack up and head out on vacation. Products themed to vacations work well. Don’t forget that not everyone has the time or budget to travel – consider ‘staycation’ themed products, too.
  • Water – Vacations and water go hand in hand. Products geared towards rivers, oceans, beaches, cruises, pools, and lakes sell well all summer long.
  • Hot Weather – Typically, summer has the warmest temperatures of the year. Focus on flowy fabric style shirts, lightweight cottons, tanks, crops, swimsuits, cover ups, wide brimmed hats, and shorts.
  • Bright Colors – Summer is a time for bright and bold colors. Use pinks, reds, greens, oranges, and yellows throughout the summer.
  • Fruit – Various citrus fruits are in season throughout the summer, along with melons like watermelon. Use fun designs geared to incorporate them throughout the warmer months.
  • Family Reunions – During summer, many families take the down time to hold a reunion. Spend time marketing to those holding family reunions, since they tend to be large bulk orders with high cart totals. 
  • Grilling, BBQs, and Backyard Activities – Families often take the time off to grill out. Grill related products, especially around Father’s Day can be a big hit.
  • Patriotic – Summer is full of patriotic holidays. From Memorial Day to July 4th and Labor Day, patriotic themed products sell well all summer long but peak the last weeks of June.
  • Father’s Day – While Spring was geared towards Mother’s Day, summer is the time to focus on Father’s Day. Get products up early, as women are more likely to shop ahead of time.
  • Back to School – The second half of your summer marketing should be focused on Back to School items. From name labels to decor, and first day of school shirts to classroom gear – parents everywhere will start shopping for school supplies in the second half of summer. Check to see if your state has a sales tax holiday and promote it.
