January has come to an end we are already halfway through February. Most people have now celebrated a popular day of the year, Valentine’s Day. Brands join in on the fun with their own way to celebrate and days like this one are great opportunities for using social media to increase engagement and generate some buzz for your brand.
We have compiled a short list of content ideas that were used for Valentine’s Day but could be implemented for other holidays as well.
Promote Holiday Themed Products And Content
Many brands have found that developing holiday-themed products has resulted in an increase in sales and exposure during that time. Valentine’s Day was no different. Social media saw lots of themed products such as heart-shaped pizza from Pizza Hut and Cherry Mocha drinks with heart-shaped cookies from Starbucks. Ideas like those could be used for any holiday!
Run A Valentine’s Day Themed Contest
Who doesn’t love being part of a contest? Running a contest almost always helps generate engagement! There are many different ways to connect your brand and a contest to any holiday. Dunkin Donuts used this tactic for their social media and saw a large increase in traffic.
Develop A Gift Guide
Gift giving can be difficult at times. What better way to help your consumers and promote your brand than to develop a gift guide? Using these guides as content on social media is a great way to create engagement along with helping your target market with ideas. The Star Wars brand promoted their character themed Valentine’s Day items that created a lot of buzz for them and their partners.
We are always developing exciting and interesting ideas for brands to promote themselves. Need help coming up with content ideas to give your brand a boost? Give us a shout!
