It’s been awhile since we’ve done one of these holiday posts, but I know people have enjoyed them in the past so I thought we’d do one for Valentine’s Day… which is less than a month away!
You may have seen a dip in your sales in the weeks after Christmas and New Years. Hopefully you employed these tactics. But either way, Valentine’s Day presents a fantastic opportunity to rev up your sales once again.
Valentine’s Day is another one of the more significant gift-giving holidays and it can be a pretty big deal if people forget to treat their significant others to something special on this one.
That makes Valentine’s Day a great time for you to push new designs and promotions aimed at providing your customers with the perfect gift to make their special someone(s) feel loved and appreciated.
And to help you prepare to push your Valentine’s Day designs, I’ve laid out three promotional ideas below:
Valentine’s Day Coupon Codes
Customers are always happy to get a good deal on gifts and holiday products. And holiday-inspired coupon codes are a fun way to combine the excitement surrounding Valentine’s Day with the joy of saving money. So in keeping with the Valentine’s Day spirit, you can make coupon codes using the following list of words:
Plus, once you create a coupon code, you can submit it to RetailMeNot.com and make it available to an even wider customer base.
Valentine’s Day Hashtags
To promote your Valentine’s Day products via social media, include the following hashtags with your messages. This way, your tweets and posts are linked to the holiday and you can attract more viewers.
Valentine’s Day Social Media Templates

All you have to do is fill in the blanks and then copy and paste the text into your social media profiles.
