We share a blog post of ideas for social media posts each month and we hope that our readers can not only use these ideas, but that the ideas will help them get their creative juices flowing to come up with other ideas for social media posts that they can use for their business.

Please see below for our social media post ideas we would like to share with you for February;

Of course February is most well known as the month of our owner and founder’s birthday, Hazel Cottrell! Not really, February is known as the month of love due to Valentine’s Day being found right in the middle of February. If you sell services or products that can be related to Valentine’s Day then relate them because it is a very big holiday (and retail opportunity) of the year and well worth piggy backing on.

If you don’t offer something ‘valentines related’ then why not run a competition where the winner receives a bottle of wine, a bouquet of flowers or a meal for two for their partner to help celebrate this romantic time of the year.

February is also Library Lovers Month so why not use this topic to engage with your audience; you could have a blog post that shares favourite books of your team or books they are currently reading, then link back to this blog post through your social media. Share your favourite books and tag the author, but ask your audience about their favourite books too.

11th – 17th February is Random Acts of Kindness Week; why not do some random acts of kindness, share details of the random acts of kindness you have done and encourage others to complete their own random acts of kindness too. Not only will this help make your community a better place, but it will also show you as a company that cares about other people.

13th February is Pancake Day, or Shrove Tuesday – use this day as an opportunity to talk about favourite toppings for pancakes, but also remember this is the first day of lent so why not talk about things you will be giving up for lent. Whether that is business related or something personal, either way this can be a great conversation starter for you and your audience.

20th February is Love Your Pet Day; everyone loves their own pets and will jump at the chance to talk about them or share a photo, so why not invite your fans and followers to do exactly this?
