Valentine’s Day is also a great time to be fully engaged on social media. Users are taking part in either celebrating or mocking the annual event using hashtags, humor and commentary.
Also keep in mind that Valentine’s Day doesn’t necessarily indicate that the products you promote must be related to hearts and candy. It is more of a His and Hers gift exchange and a thoughtful gesture.
