February 2012 Holidays, Observances, and Awareness Dates: Plan Your Promotions!
We did it! We’re coming up on the last official month of winter! Yes, we’ll still probably see snow in the Midwest until about mid-March, but that’s not important. What is important that it’s time to think about all the great days and weeks coming up in February 2012!
It seems like there are two huge themes in February: caring and partying. So whether that comes through telling your clients thank you this Valentine’s Day, or tossing around unconventional beads at Mardi Gras, there are plenty of chances for a successful promotion!
Check out what else is going on this month (click to enlarge):
With all of the care, love, or kindness-centric holidays, you can’t go wrong with any heart-shaped promotional products this month. Even if you miss Valentine’s Day or Random Acts of Kindness Day, you can pass them out all month long for American Heart Month.
Let’s be honest: among the Super Bowl, Mardi Gras celebrations, and raging President’s Day parties (I don’t know your life!) there will plenty of drinking going on. So make sure that your brand name is going home after the celebration via cups or koozies. Also, tailgating promos are still a great idea for the big game!
And even though June is still the most popular month for weddings, February is the time to start thinking about your wedding favors. This has to be the reason why it’s National Weddings Month, so save yourself the stress of ordering favors in May and get it out of the way now!
It’s also the last month for a wintertime promotion! Once March hits your clients will be wishing for spring, and an ice scraper might not go over so well.
