Blog and social media content strategy ideas for February
When it comes to February holidays, Valentine’s Day sort of take the crown (sorry, President’s Day). You can’t walk into a department store without being inundated with pink and red marketing, boxed chocolate sales, and rows of romantic greeting cards.
But after the day is over and the chocolate goes on sale (one of my favorite parts…), what else is there to look forward to? The department stores have already moved on to St. Patrick’s and Easter, or summer, but there are so many ways you can stay in the present and entertain your blog readers, social media followers, and customers.
Whether you’re developing your social media content strategy for February, are looking for some fun new blog topics to write about, or need a reminder about what people are celebrating in the shortest month of the year…
