February 2014 Holidays, Observances, and Awareness Dates: Plan Your Promotions!
Everyone still hanging in there after the polar vortex? Unfortunately, I have some bad news: we still have some winter weather left in 2014.
But don’t worry, that means that there is still plenty of time to throw a winter promotion! And you know, since the majority of the holidays are over, your customers and fans would probably like to look forward to something fun. So collect your ice scrapers and scarves and tackle the remaining weeks of winter!
A great time to have a promotion in February? Valentine’s Day! There’s never a wrong time to tell your customers or employees how much you care, but Valentine’s Day is a pretty natural fit. Whether you host a special sale or give your employees some personalized fleece jackets, make Valentine’s Day special for more than couples. There are plenty of ideas and products that fit any brand, budget, or sentiment!
What else is happening in February? Let’s take a look:
The other huge event happening in February needs no introduction. But I am going to give it one anyway: The Super Bowl!!! Diehard sports fans never miss the event and even semi-sport fans watch for commercials and the halftime show. This is the perfect time to hand out any leftover football stress balls or stadium cups or get your logo printed on other game swag.
February has a lot of opportunities for businesses to expand their brand awareness. With Entrepreneurship Week and Build a Better Trade Show Week you can hit up events to network and really dive in to trade show resources. 2014 is young, so why not make building your business one of your new resolutions? You can start by browsing some of our posts about trade shows.
And don’t forget about National Weddings Month either! Your big day might still be months (or years!) away, but that shouldn’t stop you from getting a head start on your planning. Browse our Non-Traditional Wedding Favors pinboard on Pinterest for some fun favor ideas. If you’re in the wedding business, this is a great opportunity to offer a discount on services to get some more leads!
