Hey there, amazing moms and mompreneurs! With Valentine's Day just around the corner, it's the perfect time to spread some love and boost your business with a heartfelt hustle. As moms, we're experts at juggling a million things at once, and our businesses are no exception.

1. Lovely Discounts for Loyal Customers:

Show appreciation to your loyal customers by offering an exclusive Valentine's Day Sale with discounts or special promotions. It's a sweet way to say "thank you" and encourage repeat business. Send a cute heart themed love letter to your email list with a special offer, discount code or even free shipping.

2. Mom and Me Photo Contest:

Host a Mom and Me Valentine's Day photo contest on social media. Ask your customers to share heartwarming pictures of themselves with their little ones, using your products or services. The most heart-melting photo could win special Valentine's Day gift cards or discounts to your online store. Social media contests are a great opportunity to engage with a wider audience and create brand awareness.

3. DIY Valentine's Day Kits:

Create DIY Valentine's Day kits related to your business. Whether it's crafting, baking, or self-care, moms and their kids will love spending quality time together while enjoying your specially curated kits. They can assemble Valentine's Day gifts for their friends and family. Don't forget to post about your kits on all social media platforms.

4. Virtual Love-Filled Workshops:

Organize virtual workshops, webinars or special events centered around Valentine's Day themes. It could be a cooking class, a crafting session, or even a self-care workshop. This not only engages your audience but also showcases your expertise and passion. One of my favorite Facebook secrets is to create an event and "invite" friends. The advantage to a Facebook event is that it will notify the friends of anyone who clicks "interested" in your event. This is the perfect opportunity to gain new customers who haven't yet seen your brand or business.

5. Spread the Love with Limited Editions:

Introduce limited edition Valentine's Day gifts, products or services. Adding a touch of exclusivity creates a sense of urgency and excitement, prompting customers to make a purchase before these special items run out. Create Valentine's Day gift ideas for best friends, pets, kids, or significant others. The more the merrier for this day full of love!

6. Heartfelt Blog or Newsletter:

Share a heartfelt blog post or newsletter expressing your love and gratitude for your customers. Include personal stories, behind-the-scenes moments, or even love notes with your email marketing. Authenticity goes a long way in building strong connections with your audience.  Don't forget to add heart emojis in the subject line.

7. Partner with Other Mom Businesses:

Collaborate with fellow mom entrepreneurs for a Valentine's Day-themed collaboration. This can include joint giveaways, co-hosted events, or even creating a product or service together. It's a great way to expand your reach and celebrate the spirit of community. I love it when small businesses work together to combine their resources, share ideas and win together.

8. Love-Infused Social Media Posts:

Get creative with your social media content! Run love-infused campaigns, such as asking customers to share their favorite love quotes or organizing a best friend Galentine's Day themed Instagram or Facebook Live. Engagement on social media platforms can create a buzz around your business. Try a fun countdown timer from Canva for a new product launch or a free printable (see below) for last-minute shoppers.

9. Valentine's Day Theme Packaging:

I'm a sucker for a luxurious satin pink bow! Add in some cute crinkle paper and heart confetti and you've got the best way to make your customers feel loved. Custom Valentine's Day theme packaging is an excellent opportunity to show a personal touch for special occasions.  Throw in a cute hand-written thank you note, some logo stickers and a discount code for returning customers and you will dramatically increase your customer satisfaction.  Add a QR code that links to your google review page to maximize customer engagement and reach more potential customers.


10. FREE Valentine's Day Themed Products

One of the best practices to expand your customer base and reach your target audience, is to offer a FREE printable. Every mom everywhere is combing the internet right now for free printable Valentine's Day theme cards for their kids' school classrooms. Another great example of a free printable could be a Valentine's Day Gift Guide that includes your products as well as offerings from other local businesses.

Free printables are the perfect gift for last-minute shoppers too.  You can create a heart themed landing page with an email form for potential customers on your website. Link this form to a printable library with multiple free printables, coloring pages, famous true love quotes and more to get the most out of your Valentine's Day Marketing Campaign.
