It may be the shortest month of the year, but February offers plenty of opportunities for you to boost engagement online and among internal teams. In this post, we’ll share our list of the holidays you need to know about and how to make the most of them with easy-to-use Animoto templates.
To start, think about what your goals are for your business this month. Are you promoting a sale? Aiming to engage your audience? Increasing company morale? Or simply working on establishing a more consistent social media presence?
Next, decide which holidays make sense for your business, and create a checklist to plan which videos you’ll make this February. Then, keep reading for more in-depth ideas, and find Animoto templates to help you get started.
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.
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.
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.
Or, inspire your audience to take action and donate organizations that support and empower Black communities and individuals. Check out the Non-Profit List template and add even more organizations that are important to you.
