Special day campaigns are an excellent way to elevate your social media presence, remain relevant, and inspire engagement amongst your social media community. One special day you can’t miss out on is Valentine’s Day.
Up and away with Ryanair
The popular Ireland-based airline company Ryanair launched a social media campaign that proves user-generated content (UCG) will always be king. The brand held a competition on Twitter asking people to tag them in pictures with their loved ones mentioning their ultimate dream destination. The winner was promised tickets to their chosen location for them and their loved one.
Etsy’s #MakeItMeaningful ready-made social media posts
Last year, the well-known eCommerce platform, Etsy, provided their sellers with a great opportunity to promote their products on social media over the Valentine’s period. The company put together a batch of ready-made social media posts that sellers could publish on their own social media platforms to drive more traffic to their online stores using the clever hashtag #MakeItMeaningful. Not only did Etsy gain exposure, but their sellers did too.
Bestie love by Nina Ricci
One brand that recognises that Valentine’s Day is about all kinds of love is fashion company Nina Ricci. In a catchy social media campaign using the #MyBestValentine hashtag, the company encouraged users to post pictures of themselves and their BFF on social media platforms. This is yet another creative campaign that utilises UGC to generate a buzz.
It’s not all hearts and roses
You don’t have to sell chocolates, jewellery, or flowers to run a successful Valentine’s Day campaign. A genius idea by Penguin Books India was to run a social media campaign using creative visuals to create engagement. Through their #LoveInOtherWords promotion, Penguin India was able to celebrate love and togetherness in a meaningful way.
Influencer collabs to spread the love
One brand with an active presence on social media is Bombay Shaving Company. Their recent Valentine’s Day social media campaign involved collaborating with an influencer to promote their specially curated gift boxes and an exclusive discount code. Working with influencers is a brilliant way to boost engagement and grow your following.
