Active Entertainment Social Media Marketing Special

It’s more important than ever for trampoline parks and active entertainment venues to be active on social media to be visible in your customer’s news feeds, boost engagement and give you opportunities to encourage customers to visit your venue.

We’ve pulled together a list of special dates and events throughout the year with some tips on how your venue can make the most of them. Packed with national celebrations, religious events, awareness days and a few funny, random ones to celebrate thrown in!

Use a social media scheduling tool to set up posts in advance to make life easier for you. Let us know if you think we’ve missed any.
