February Video Ideas & Examples

The earlier you get started creating your videos, the more prepared you can be for the holidays themselves. From brand awareness to sales promotion, February’s holidays will give you the chance to market your business in unique ways with video.

Black History Month

February is Black History Month, offering up 28 days of opportunities for further education, advocacy, and action in support of racial justice and equality. There are countless ways to participate this month, from supporting black-owned businesses to sharing the history of Black History Month and encouraging your followers to donate to organizations like the Black Lives Matter Movement.

Share all of the ways you’re practicing anti-racism this month with video, and encourage those in your own community to move toward a place of inclusivity with an Impactful Quote video.

Galentine’s Day

Romance is great and all, but Galentine’s Day, an event that has become increasingly more popular in recent years, is all about celebrating and appreciating friendships. Use our Valentine’s Day List template to share fun ideas for celebrating Galentine’s Day, and be sure to highlight any sales, events, or deals your business is having in honor of the occasion.
