We are here to let you know that there is a lot more to February that can bring you good, high quality content.

We offer a list of over 250 content ideas with 5 featured ideas to get you started with your internet marketing plan. February is  the shortest of all the months, so spend that time wisely with  content that will mean something to your target audience.

Feel free to leave us comments with your additional ideas of how one of these content ideas works for you!

Featured Content Ideas

1. Movie Review

Is there a movie out there that focuses on your industry? More than likely your answer is going to be yes. The more important question is do they accurately depict your field of work or are they completely off base? By nature, people are curious and they want to know the ins and out of how a company works. For this content idea, we suggest you review an industry related movie and compare and contrast real life to what the movie shows. Give them a behind the scenes look of what it’s really like to be forensics anthropologist or whatever it may be that you specialize in.

2. Love your “____”

In honor of Valentine’s Day, pick one of your popular products that your customers love and promote it as a marketing campaign. For example, if you were a shoe store  you may say “Love your Feet” and then ask for people to post photos of their favorite pair of shoes they bought with you on your social media page.  Another example would be a pet store saying “Love your Pet” and requesting photos of people’s pets in their cutest outfit or with their favorite toy.  If you owned a jewelry store, you might say “Love your Significant Other” and have your followers share their favorite pair of earrings or necklace that was handpicked for them by the one they love. The possibilities are endless.

3. Join in on International Expect Success Month

Write a blog that explains why you expect success this month due to the latest release of a new product or service. If it’s been on the market for a couple of months now, go into detail of how this product was successful to your clients.  Throw in a few testimonials in there to validate their stories. If your product has yet to be released, describe how successful you envision the product to be. Make your customers want to wait in line for it the day it’s released by showing how valuable it will be. Instill that anticipation of success in your product before it’s released and you’ll be sure to have a valid reason to “expect success.”

4. Challenge your Customers

Come up with a challenge that will inspire your customers to take it. Have the challenge last a week or the entire month. For content purposes, the longer you can make the challenge last the better. For example, let’s say you are a tomato company and you challenge your customers to eat healthier by adding a tomato in at least one meal a day for the month. This challenge can increase your sales because they will need to buy more tomatoes. It will also provide you with content for the whole month. You can be posting an encouragement to keep the challenge going by providing recipes that call for tomatoes, the health benefits of eating them, a type of tomato cut they should try that day, ect… Obviously, we don’t all sell tomatoes so apply this challenge to your company to increase the demand for that month on your product or service.

5.  Celebrate International Networking Week (3rd-7th)

Networking is a great way to bring in new business and to make business connections. Find a way this week to network with other local business online. Create content that is specifically tailored to creating a community  that will bring all your businesses together. Explain to them how you help each other out and why they should connect with you.  Give them a reason so compelling they will want to join in. Then, if you haven’t already start online communities or groups where you can freely share your business with one another in hopes of bringing together a partnership.
