Need some Valentines Day social media post ideas?
Using seasonal celebrations and events like Valentine’s Day, Christmas, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day and International Coffee Day – it’s actually a thing on 1 October 😉- is a smart move for social media managers and business owners.
These events are TIMELY and RELEVANT and top of mind for your audience. They’re kind of expecting to see something about it as they scroll. So it’s an awesome opportunity to engage with your followers and remind them how great you are.
- Share a story
- Use a great image
- Show off your products
- Engage with your followers
A little personalization goes a long way. If you’re not actively engaged in the conversation on social media, there’s no better time to start!
Here are some of my favourite Valentine’s Day posts. I gathered these as examples that are achievable for most social media managers on zero to little budget.
It’s 100% about thinking creatively. Use what you have at hand and tweak it to fit the theme of the event. (And if you aren’t handy with an iPhone or you don’t have ANY images you can use, check out www.pexels.com for some great, free, royalty free images).
@alexisrusselljewelry makes and sells exquisite jewellery, mostly diamond rings. Using something very simple ad a traditional Valentine’s gift- a candy heart- they made a diamond.
Is there anything more Valentine-y than chocolate covered strawberries? They are a healthy treat though, so totally in alignmnet with this business. Writing on them in chocolate just makes it so much sweeter, if you’ll pardon the pun. Can your porduct be used to celebrate the holiday? Show us how!
This is a terrific idea that turns Valentine’s Day on its head. Great if your product or service is totally un-related to the event and has a sense of humour.
Animals are universally popular and the link to ‘guilty of love’ is a smart link. As always, the same royalty and copyright issues apply to using images from the interwebs. Additionally, you could always use your own pet photos.
Hearts and love are everywhere on Valentine’s Day. Shaping their camera strap into a heart shape is a simple link that works alongside the short text.
Man Shed posts are for a very specific male audience with a distinct sense of humour. But if this is your jam, go for it. People love the absurd.
Remember what we said about the heart shape? Shaping your product into a heart is simple but it works.
Feet and hearts. Literally exactly what they work with every day and an iconic red heart cushion. I’d have been tempted to say something like ‘We love your feet as much as you do’. But this idea is easily replicable with a bit of time and thought.
Iconic red. Iconic heart shapes. Chocolate AND a giveaway. Heck, yes! I’d be happy to tag the person I’d eat those bliss balls with.
Cute red heart-shaped tins and a sweet verse about love is all this post is. What products or services do you offer that you could tie to the love/heart/sweet/Valentine theme?
This is so smart. Visually, it ties in with The Bachelor TV show which was hugely popular when this post went live. The red roses and the idea of falling out of love with your job are clever hooks for a recruitment company. Now all you have to do is convince your team to get in the photo…
