HOW TO MONETISE VALENTINE’S DAY

Valentine’s Day – an annual celebration of love and… commercialism. Love it or hate it. Despite its romantic roots, it is a significant spending holiday for shoppers worldwide and a great way to show the emotional side of your brand/company.

7 Valentine’s Day ideas for businesses:

  1. RUN A PROMOTION ON BEST-SELLING PRODUCTS
    You have 24h to take the opportunity to produce tangible return-on-investment. Do this!
  2. SPREAD THE LOVE
    If your product/service is a hard-sell on Valentine’s Day consider sharing some of your expertise instead. Be creative! Be inspiring!
  3. USE VALENTINE’S HASHTAGS ON SOCIALMEDIA
    Hashtags are a great way to promote your business. Mixed them: one that is singular to your company and popular ones that are used by others. 
  4. ORGANIZE A CONTEST OR A POLL ON SOCIAL MEDIA
    2019 is about authenticity and original content, so organize a contest or simply run a poll to test how engaged your audiences are.
  5. DO A VALENTINE’S DAY THEMED VIDEO
    Good quality videos are so popular and successful on SM. You can bring your followers a bit closer and show them what happens behind-the-scenes.
  6. CREATE A DEDICATED OFFER/PLACE
    It is common practice to create a dedicated category/product/promotion on your website for special occasions like Valentine’s Day. 
  7. CELEBRATE & SAY THANK YOU
    If you are stretched for time, you may create a sweet image for a simple greeting for your followers/clients/partners on Valentine’s Day.

BTW, if you like the idea of creating your content around trending dates like #ValentinesDay2019, please plan it as your NeuroMarketing calendar. It will give you more, more time and peace to prepare your pro strategy. #WeLoveOurClients
