If your company is more B2B, consider offering a services special for the 4th and tell your audience about it through your content.
blog post, or a piece of content, consider producing a short video that someone could watch in under a couple of minutes on their mobile device or computer. Perhaps you could even tailor the video messaging to be in line with 4th of July sentiments.
