There are some marketing drivers which can be used for products and services promotion throughout the whole summer, we have listed them in our previous article “Affiliate programs popular in June”.

Tour de France
A huge sports event is held from July 6th till July 28th. Riders from all over the world travel to France to take part in this competition and to try their luck.
Although the participants buy their tickets long before the race, spectaculars from Europe can buy impulsively the train/bus tickets right before the tour to go and see it. Thus, tickets, accommodation, and other services from travel category should be promoted before the race. Create interesting articles/videos about this event, in addition, describe other places nearby which tourists can visit and some subscribers may decide to go.
Apart from the travelling segment, promote clothing, shoes and accessories for cycling so that if someone decides to try their luck in riding a bike, they will find all they need in your article/video.
Colourful, crowded and loud event on the streets of San Diego will be held from 18th to 21st July in 2019. It is a non-profit entertainment and comic convention held annually in San Diego. People from many countries come to the city to participate in this event, enjoy the atmosphere and meet new people who have the same interests. The distinguishing feature of this convention is that most visitors wear costumes of famous superheroes, anime characters or other stars which they like. And the majority of them don’t buy the outfits but enjoy the process of creating them by themselves. Goods from China can help participants make the costumes cool but not expensive. Accessories from different stores can be also relevant. If you know this area well, you can create an article or video tutorials on how to make the costumes as a sort of DIY videos. You can also make a selection of cheapest and fastest costumes for Comic-Con. And of course, don’t forget to add affiliate links to earn the reward.
In addition you can offer some interesting games with cool graphics for those who cannot attend the convention but have to stay at home.
International Friendship day
An enjoyable day for BFFs all around the world. On this day friends meet to go shopping together or to get mani/pedi and in the end spend the day at some cozy restaurant. One more way to celebrate this day is to cook together favourite meals. And what can be more convenient than ordering the ingredients online a couple of days before the day? So provide your subscribers with such an opportunity and share with them some groceries where they can order products online. Furthermore, there are those people who don’t want to spend their time on cooking but they would rather order lunch, so don’t avoid such audience either.
But it is not the only thing that people do to celebrate the day of friendship, many users prepare thoughtful gifts for their beloved friends to make them happy on this occasion. Usually, it is something small and not expensive like a friendship bracelet, books or other things to remind about their friendship. Note that children adore celebrating such days and thus target the parents promoting them some inexpensive gifts which they can buy to make their children happy.

July is the peak of mid-seasonal sales, it is the time when big stores need to get more room at warehouses for new autumn-winter collections.
