As the weather gets warmer, everyone’s thoughts turn to fun in the sun. It’s difficult to get prospects and customers to pay attention to your emails, let alone get them to pay for your goods and services. But if you want to stay in business, your email marketing doesn’t get a summer vacation.
Don’t worry, we won’t let the big box stores kick sand in your eye this summer. We’ve got some hot takes to help you turn up the heat on your email marketing.
There’s more to summer email marketing than just the Fourth of July. Here’s a list of seasonal holidays and events to help you plan out your summer email campaigns.

Early June: Graduations
June 14: Flag Day
June 17: Father’s Day
June 21: The first official day of summer (and the longest day of the year)
July 4: Independence Day
Mid-August: Back to School (the unofficial end of summer)
September 3: Labor Day
