February Content Marketing Ideas and Events for Your Calendar, PLUS Hashtags

February 2: Today is Groundhog Day.  Everyone will be talking about it this morning, so you’d probably better tweet about it, too!  Follow @GroundhogClub  Use hashtag #

February 5: It’s Superbowl Sunday!  Fans will be talking about football this week.  Tie into this content on your Facebook Page and Twitter account.  Follow @SuperBowl Use hashtag #SB46

February 10-16: New York Fashion Week.  Use hashtag #NYFW

February 13-17: Gear up for Social Media Week.  Register for free presentations all week long.  Fletcher Prince is offering 3 free presentations this week — watch them online.  Follow @socialmediaweek and  @SMWWDC  Use hashtag #SMWWDC

February 14: Valentine’s Day – share some love and write LinkedIn recommendations for your vendors, partners, and contractors.  Ask Fletcher Prince to help you set up your LinkedIn company profile.  Giveaway a big, heart-shaped box of chocolates, or a dozen roses.

February 20: Today is Washington’s Birthday and it’s a federal holiday, President’s Day.  It’s cold out, too, so lots of people will be online.  This is a good day to schedule email communications and social media outreach. Or if you have a store or brick and mortar business, hire an actor to be President Lincoln or President Washington.  Follow @VisitMtVernon and follow hashtag #

February 21: Laissez les bons temps rouler! It’s Mardi Gras.  If you’re in the Washington, DC area, make plans to join your friends from Fletcher Prince for a Louisiana-style networking lunch with a Mardi Gras theme in Alexandria, Virginia.  You’ll meet Washington PR Woman of the Year Heathere Evans-Keenan and  foremost employee communications expert Susan Rink, among other interesting professionals.  Register here.

February 29: Today is Leap Day in our  Leap Year!  Learn more about the background and curious customs associated with Leap Day and Sadie Hawkins Day on Wikipedia.  In England and some Scandinavian countries, it used to be tradition that women may propose marriage to men on that day, and if they are refused, they are gifted with clothes, fabric, or gloves.
