5 Social Media Content Ideas for October


By: Michelle M. Saavedra


Now that we are entering a spooky season, it’s time to revamp our creativity! If you want to be known as the “Pumpkin King” of Health Insurance, you’ll need to embrace the autumn aesthetic during the month of October. In other words, you must identify the key elements that might help you connect with your ideal audience and incorporate them into your content calendar plan. Let’s say that your ideal client likes to buy pumpkin spice lattes during the fall. The easiest way to pique their interest would be to create a content piece that includes this seasonal drink.

Nonetheless, we are not asking you to sprint towards the nearest coffee shop and take gazillion photos of the signature cup. Agility Agents know there must be real intent behind everything they publish on the web. If you’re an Insurance Agent that is ready to take your online presence to the next level, then we invite you to implement the following 5 content pieces created for the month of October.

1) Pumpkin Spice Latte

Most internet users have shared at least one image of their morning coffee online. And since we can expect to see the #PumpkinSpiceLatte hashtag trending again this year, we would be a fool not to prepare a social media post for our business page. If you’re utilizing our social media template, we recommend adding the following caption to your post:


If drinking coffee is part of your morning routine, then having a dental plan is also a must. Contact me for a FREE dental insurance quote today! (Add your phone number and/ or website). #PumpkinSpiceLatte

2) World Mental Health Day (October 10)

During the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, the term mental health became a trending topic online. According to Mental Health America, last year “over 5.4 million people took a mental health screen, representing a nearly 500% increase over the number of people who completed a screening in 2019”. Since consumers are actively seeking this type of service, it makes sense to create a content post for #WorldMentalHealthDay. If you’re utilizing our social media template, we recommend adding the following caption to your post:


YOU are not alone! If you need help finding a health insurance plan that covers mental health services, DM me or text me at (Add your phone number). #WorldMentalHealthDay

3) ACA Open Enrollment Countdown 


It’s no secret that Healthcare Open Enrollment season starts November 1st. Even though this information is accessible online; many clients and prospects will not remember this fact. It is up  to us (Insurance Agents) to remind the community. The best way to achieve this is by publishing a few Countdown Posts on your social media business page. If you’re utilizing our social media  template, we recommend adding the following caption to your post: 

In 3 Days: You’ll be able to enroll in a 2023 health insurance plan. Contact me for more details at:  (Add your phone number). 


4) Live Streaming Video

Insurance Agents that are looking to connect with their audience, on a more personal level, should consider running a live video stream online. Not only will you be able to answer questions from your followers in real time, but your live video content will have a higher-ranking priority on a user’s newsfeed. According to Facebook, “live videos on average get six times as many interactions as regular videos”.

Now, should you start incorporating live video streaming into your content strategy today?

Answer: Only if you can create an outline or a script! Here are some things you should consider before pressing the LIVE button→ The Must-Read Guide: Professional Facebook Live Streams.

5) Happy Halloween (October 31)


This year, October 31st lands on a Monday. If you’re going to dress up for the occasion, then sharing a selfie or a group photo online is a must. Just remember to wear a creative costume that will get your followers talking. The more you embrace your specific character, the more engagement you can expect to receive on your page. You might even consider creating a video Reel or TikTok highlighting the best moments of the day. But if you’re more reserved (camera shy), we recommend utilizing our Social Media Template.


We hope that our blog has helped you jumpstart your content calendar plan for the month of October. Remember to be on the lookout for next month’s social media tips and tricks.
