February Content Ideas


As we finish the first month of 2021, I’m here to remind you to PLAN AHEAD!

It’s so important that you have a strategy when it comes to posting on social media. You can shoot from the hip and claim that social media marketing doesn’t work OR you can put a plan in place, stick to a creating a content calendar and schedule your posts in advance.

You don’t need to block a ton of time out of your schedule to do this either! AND…if you are struggling to get organized and plan, I have a great resource for you! I created the Social Media Planner–I promise you  if will help you get you where you want to go with your social media marketing. You can grab the planner HERE.

Part of your content strategy should include an element of FUN! That’s why I share these National Holidays. You can utilize a few of these a month that will resonate with your audience. These posts should increase engagement!

February is Black History Month–if this resonates with your audience, be sure to have several posts throughout the month that includes fun facts, stats, etc.

February 2 – Ground Hog Day — have fun with this an encourage fans to guess to see if the little guy will see his shadow or not

February 4 – Thank a Mail Carrier Day — you know they work hard–time to show a little appreciation!

February 5 – Wear Red Day — show support and awareness for cardiovascular disease

February 7 – Super Bowl Sunday — be careful when using the term Super Bowl–it’s actually trademarked! But, use this day to ask about favorite football snacks, winner predictions or my fav–the best commercial!

February 9 – National Pizza Day — who doesn’t like talking about PIZZA? Encourage fans to vote for their favorite local pizza joint, or take a poll on favorite toppings or deep dish vs thin crust!!

February 14 – Valentine’s Day  — the day of LOVE! Flowers or Chocolate? Perfect Date Night? Possibilities are endless here!

Why Social Media is like a Cocktail Party

social media is like a cocktail party

Social Media is “social” networking. It’s not meant to be a place to sell, but a place to build relationships and connect.

So if you’re only using it to sell, sell, sell…and frustrated you are not getting anything out of it, it’s time to shift your mindset and start showing up like it’s a cocktail party.

How would you really act at a cocktail party? You’d meet new people, introduce yourself, ask questions, build rapport, catch up with friends and have one on one conversations.
You can show up on social media the same way. More posts that create connection, tell a story or engage with your audience…just like you’d interact at a cocktail party.
Here’s 3 ways you can create posts that feel more like socializing:
  1. Start asking questions!  People love to talk about themselves, so ask questions that will make your followers feel heard and want to engage with you. It doesn’t have to be about your product or service either…it just needs to resonate with your audience.
  2. Share about you and your community!  What is something people know you for that could create a connection with others who might share that same interest? Do you volunteer? Do you love road trips and traveling? What about fitness? Start building the trust by sharing the authentic YOU.Are there current events happening in your community? Share about these things just like you’d discuss them in a conversation over wine and cheese.
  3. Provide value  Stop posting just about your brand, products, services, etc…that is lame and boring. Share valuable content that would be helpful to someone needing your services/product in the future. What do you want to be known for? What are you an expert in? Think of tips, ideas and things you can share that will help position yourself as an expert and show up as a trusted resource…instead of a sales pitch.

Now it’s time to get to the party and become the center of attention among your followers. Let me know how it goes! And I wouldn’t be a proper host if I didn’t invite you to my private Facebook Group, where I share insider tips and tricks and all things marketing! Come on over and join our party: Marketing Rockstar VIP Group.

7 Mistakes to Avoid with Social Media Marketing

7 mistakes to avoid with social media marketing


Looking to dominate your social media marketing? Then avoid these 7 mistakes:

  1. Having no plan/goals
    • Putting in a strategy in place is the first step for success. Define your goals and map out how you are going to get there.
  2. Thinking size matters
    • Having 1000s of followers might look cool, but if they are not quality followers or true fans, then they are a waste of time and money. Focus on getting the right followers.
  3. Being everywhere
    • Find out where your customers are (or potential customers) and focus on being awesome of those social media platforms. Two or three platforms is ideal.
  4. Inconsistent branding
    • Make things look similar. Use the same colors, fonts, theme, look/feel for everything you post. When your followers are scrolling through, they will recognize your post by your branding efforts first.
  5. Not completing your profiles
    • Fill out your profiles on your social media platforms completely. Email, website, phone number, about page…everything needs to be completed.
  6. Buying your followers
    • do not ever…EVER!! These paid-for followers most likely are not your ideal customers and will soon un-follow your account if you don’t follow them back. Don’t fall for the scam emails or dm’s that might come your way with enticing offers to grow your account.
  7. Only talk about your brand
    • This is boring and you will lose followers. Provide value. Give them a reason to interact with your post. Be social. You would never go to a party and just talk about yourself the entire time…don’t do it here either.

These are simple things your business can avoid to make sure your marketing efforts are effective on social media. For more tips and tricks, be sure to join the Marketing Rockstar VIP Facebook Group.

Struggling with WTPS? (what to post syndrome)

Find yourself waking up and frustrated on what to post today?


This doesn’t have to be difficult or a challenge. But, it does take an action plan and thought. Remember that social media platforms aren’t for selling. They are for social interaction.

To get the most bang for your buck, you need to have a plan. Define your goals. Know your audience. Create valuable content. Create a content calendar. Be consistent. And follow-up. Remember, this is a two-way street…if they engage with you, make sure you engage back.

Holiday Marketing Tips You NEED This Season


The holiday season is upon us. If your company sells goods or services to consumers, you need to have a Holiday Marketing Plan in place. Needs some direction? Here’s a few tips:

  1. Show Gratitude for Current Customers – we all know that people have PLENTY of options when it comes to where they purchase their gifts. Give your current customers a reason to choose you. Send them a private invitation or a thank-you card with a discount to use during the holiday buying season. Keep your business top-of-mind.
  2. Offer a FREE GIFT – Everyone likes something for free…that’s why providing a free product or purchase gift is such a compelling holiday marketing strategy. Highlight special offers, savings, and free promotions whenever possible to amplify your sales during this time of year.
  3. Use Email Marketing – Throughout the holiday season, businesses send shoppers a variety of offers. Which is one reason consumers frequently check their email during the holiday shopping season. Send out emails that highlight your promotions, sales, or seasonal product line.
  4. Use Hashtags – With hashtags, you can spread the word about your sales and promotions. You can also encourage user-generated content by creating a hashtag for shoppers to use when posting a photo or status that features your product. The right hashtags can help you reach new shoppers who are looking for the perfect gift this holiday season too. What do your consumers seem to want most for the holidays this year? Use hashtags on your Twitter, Instagram, and various other social media profiles to create more buzz for your business.
  5. Embrace Video – According to 90 percent of users, video also helps them make a purchase decision, which tremendously benefits your company. Adding a video to your website, emails, or social media page can help you share your company’s message in a way that invites users to learn more about your brand. Videos are user-friendly too, plus make it easy for viewers to learn more about your products and their uses.

With a bit of planning, your team can develop a one-of-a-kind holiday marketing strategy that drives your seasonal sales upward. From offering personalized experiences to sharing gratitude, your company has a variety of options when it comes to promoting your business this season.
