LOVE (noun) [ləv]
We do enjoy coming up with these “made-up” words for you. And it seems they are growing in popularity. Why? Because they relate to everyone. This week we take care of the Valentine’s lovers and single people too! We don’t discriminate. #LoveDictionary
SINGLE & LOVING IT
Many campaigns are targeted towards couples and lovers but do not turn a blind eye to the singles out there. There are many and they are a huge consumer. These days, it’s no longer taboo to be single and alone on Valentine’s Day – so take advantage of this and promote singles’ nights at your restaurant/bar or create a special discount just for them! #SingleGirlsRock #SingleLife #ReadyToMingle
Is it just us or is 2017 moving fast? We are already in the month of LOVE. It’s the shortest one of the year but the most passionate of them all. Shower your follower’s newsfeeds with #FebruaryLove. #HelloFebruary
CELEBRATE THE SHORTEST MONTH OF THE YEAR
The color is purple this month. The color also is love all month long. Instead of just sharing the tidbits of each month, try incorporating them in a contest or draw. Ask them to upload your product in a purple setting or with a purple flower etc… Use your imagination. God knows, we need it to keep them coming back for more! #Purple #Amethyst #FebruaryColor #FebruaryFruits
ARE YOU FE-ELING FE-BRUARY YET?
Our monthly words are back. This month they are powerful and most valuable. They are not new words by all means, but finding ways to grab your customer’s attention is what we want. The more creative we are, the more engagement you get! Win-Win! #FebruaryWords
WHAT’S UP THIS WEEK
JANUARY 31 – INSPIRE YOUR HEART WITH ART DAY
As the late Carrie Fisher once said, “Take your broken heart, make it into art.” We agree! Motivate them to pick up that brush or book or strengthen their vocal cords. Anything really, as long as they are doing something artsy! #InspireYourHeartWithArt
FEBRUARY 1 – NATIONAL FREEDOM DAY
Today we honor Abraham Lincoln for outlawing slavery. Today we celebrate all those who have been liberated from the shackles of life. So encourage your fans to step outside and FEEL the freedom that we have worked so hard to achieve (in this country).
FEBRUARY 2 – GROUNDHOG DAY
It’s funny how we tune in every year to see if the groundhog will pop his head out or not. Most of the time he’s wrong! Sharing this post pokes fun at our tradition but we all to need smile especially when we head into the coldest month of the year. #GroundhogDay #EarlySpring
FEBRUARY 3 – NATIONAL WEAR RED DAY
February is American Heart Month. Since heart disease is the leading cause of death in this country, we’d say it would be best to share this post with all your followers (even as a preventative measure). Show them you care! Today anyone wearing red can get a discount or free red gift or e-book. #WearRedDay #HeartMonth #HeartHealthy
FEBRUARY 4 – HAPPY BIRTHDAY FACEBOOK
It would be silly not to wish the pioneer of social media a #HappyBirthday. Because of this platform, we are able to promote our businesses, make money and reach our audience. It’s a birthday even your followers will want to celebrate. #HappyBirthdayFacebook
FEBRUARY 4 – WORLD CANCER DAY
With many still affected by this dis-ease, we need to rise up and tackle it head on. It’s Super Bowl Weekend, so let’s get into the fighting spirit and share these simple nutritional benefits. Small changes lead to big results! #FightCancer #WorldCancerDay #CancerSucks #WeCanICan
