With the back-to-school season right around the corner, lots of parents and business owners are in a period of transition. That means this is your perfect opportunity to wow your audience by bringing some great back-to-school content ideas to life. Here’s how to do it right (along with some examples to help get you started).
Make It Relevant.
You will need to tailor your back-to-school content to your audience and industry, so brainstorm with your teams and plan your campaigns carefully. In case you’re still stuck, here are some industry-specific examples to get you started.

- “Back-To-School? We Thought You Said, ‘Backyard Pool!’” / “Lift Your Concrete While Lifting Your Grades”
- This can be centered around any services you offer with a special focus on getting projects done before fall and winter weather conditions set in.
- “It’s Back-To-School Season!”
- This would be a good content piece to include any special deals or offerings, even if you don’t necessarily have an industry that appeals specifically to parents or students.
When In Doubt, Lean On Stories.
If you don’t have a solid idea of what sort of back-to-school content you want to do, lean on stories. These can be about your kids and their experiences with school, your own personal memories, or stories from a friend or family member. Seasonally relevant personal stories are great for filling out your annual content calendar, especially if you’re struggling with how to integrate new themes.
Offer A Back-To-School Deal.
When in doubt, offer a deal. This is probably the easiest way to get eyes on your back-to-school content and customers in the door. Besides, the early fall is often the best time to appeal to parents and students, so adding a deal to your content might make you more competitive.
We hope these ideas are helpful to you wherever you are in your content marketing journey. As always, consult with your team to see what back-to-school ideas would appeal to your specific audience and your industry. Good luck!
