Don’t feel any obligation to create something for every holiday on the list. The holidays you celebrate should tie back to your business in a way that’s clear to your customers. The good news is there are plenty to choose from. Take a look through and decide which videos you’ll make!

International Women's Day

Celebrate powerful women, from the ones who help your business and community thrive to the ones making history across the world. Create a slideshow video highlighting the women on your team, or share a list of quotes from some of the females who inspire you the most with our Editorial Quote List template. Consider using these hashtags if you share your video on social media: #InternationalWomensDay2022, #IWD2022, #IWD22

Employee Appreciation Day

Your employees are the heartbeat of your business, and they should be celebrated as such. Take this small opportunity to thank them for everything they do and show off their talent and skills with video. Customize our New Hire Welcome template with photos, video clips, and text showcasing your invaluable team members.

Make your video creation even more efficient with Saved Brands. With Saved Brands, you can add your brand’s logo, colors, and font to every video with the click of a button. If you’re on the Professional plan, you can create one Saved Brand, or if you’re on the Professional Plus plan, you can create multiple Saved Brands, allowing you to make your video on-brand in a fraction of the time every time.

Daylight Savings/Spring Forward Sale

Daylight Savings has arrived—and while that means a little less sleep, it also signals that spring is on the horizon. Reward your customers for making it through another winter with a “Spring Forward” flash sale, discounting some of your favorite warm-weather products and services. You can also use this as a chance to share some of your new spring goods with our Seasonal Promotion or Just Dropped templates.

St. Patrick's Day

Encourage social engagement on March 17th with a festive video, wishing friends and followers a happy St. Patrick’s Day. Try editing one of our holiday templates, like the Simple Holiday Story or the Happy New Year’s Story templates, customizing them for the occasion.

Need photos and video clips of four-leaf clovers, green beer, or a pot of gold waiting at the end of a rainbow to add to your video invite? Check out our extensive stock library. The Select stock library on our Professional plan features 1 million+ photos and videos from Getty Images, and the Premium library on our Professional Plus plan offers 100 million+ photos and video clips.

National Mom and Pop Business Owners Day

Small business owners are the unsung heroes of the American economy. Use National Mom and Pop Business Owners Day to create brand awareness, and increase traffic to your business, both virtually and in person. Help customers get a better understanding of the face behind your business and encourage sales with our Business Story or Local Business Showcase templates.
