If you’re looking for a way to increase sales in an online store, Valentine’s Day can be the perfect deal. The feast of lovers, celebrated on February 14, is one of the few sales peaks in the year that can directly translate into additional revenue. With a well-planned and implemented marketing campaign, you will not only notice an increase in sales, but also increase awareness of your brand.


Which audiences should you consider when planning a Valentine’s Day marketing campaign?

Existing customers – if someone did shopping in your store and is satisfied, there is a chance that you will also be interested in more products.

Loyal customers – do you have people in your customer group who often make purchases in your online store? Prepare a personalized Valentine’s offer for them.

Influencers – try to use influencer marketing. Contact opinion leaders tailored to your target group and suggest Valentine’s Day gifts 🙂


Remember a few rules:

Contact influencers with personalized messages. The more general the message, the less chance of a positive response.
Don’t force influencers on specific forms of cooperation: if you count on free advertising, leave the decision to the author. Your task is to prepare a really attractive, recommendable package that will stand out from others.
If you don’t have a huge marketing budget, bet on reliable microinfluencers. Increasingly, we trust them more than the most popular creators in the network cooperating for a fee and only with large brands.

And how to prepare campaigns for social media?

  • Develop a communication narrative tailored to your target group.
  • Create a dedicated hashtag for the entire campaign and use it on every social platform.
  • Remember about Valentine’s branding, set a temporary profile photo and background photo dedicated to the campaign
  • Plan the entire range of Valentine’s content using the following inspirations:
    • record videos, e.g. Valentine’s manifesto, video promoting your products, showing creative ways to wrap a gift, etc.
    • think about preparing a live broadcast – remember that the topic must be relevant and interesting from the point of view of your potential customers,
    • create a survey, infographic, gifs,
    • publish posts with tips and inspirations,
    • present photo sessions with Valentine’s products,
