April is the time of year where we really start to see the first fresh, local produce start to make an appearance. Team that up seasonal holidays like Ramadan, Passover and Earth Day and there’s no shortage of April newsletter ideas for food bloggers and food content creators.
April offers up a wealth of content ideas for your email newsletters so now is the time to start writing and scheduling so they’re all ready to go next month.
In 2024, Easter is early (in March) so that means the major observances for April this year are Ramadan (which continues from March until April 10), Passover (April 22- April 30) and Earth Day (April 22). Each with their own unique food based traditions. That means lots of content ideas!
- the food!
- entertaining – small groups, large groups, casual, budget friendly, upscale, planning and prepping
- kid friendly projects
- classic traditions
- modern twists on tradition
- don’t forget leftovers!
- sustainable ingredients
- reducing food waste
- trying a local diet (100km diet etc)
April can be a wild ride depending on where you live and how angry winter has been! Not all of these foods will be in season everywhere just yet (but they’re coming!)
- lettuce – a wide variety
- greenhouse produce: tomatoes, cucumbers, sweet peppers and strawberries
BRUNCH IS BACK!
Early spring means brunch is back and patios are opening up – maybe even the one in your back yard! Start putting those brunch recipes and entertaining ideas out there. People will be looking for them!
EARLY MOTHER’S DAY:
People plan ahead for Mother’s Day in North America so it’s appropriate to start dripping content out in late April newsletters:
- brunch and lunch
- afternoon tea
- cakes, pastries and desserts
- outdoor dining
- dinner menus
- prep ahead
EARLY VEGGIE GARDENING:
Veggie gardening is food content and more and more people are interested in growing their own food! There is interest in small space gardening, container gardening and full scale backyard growing… and what they can cook with their new bounty!
TAILOR YOUR APRIL NEWSLETTER CONTENT FOR YOUR EMAIL AUDIENCE
As always, these are ideas to help you brainstorm. Adapt them to fit your audience and your niche, which you know better than anyone else.
Remember that your email audience may be different from the audience that finds you through search.
Focus on what your newsletter subscribers respond to. If you have the data available in your newsletter marketing platform, look at which content they responded to this time last year. Then create newsletter content that’s a good fit!
Now’s the time to get started. Plan out your April newsletter calendar and batch write your emails. Schedule them and you’re good to go!
** remember that you cannot use your direct Amazon affiliate product links in your emails but you can link to blog posts that contain Amazon affiliate links and you can link to your Amazon influencer shop. Check the rules of any other affiliate programs you use before including your links.
