Find our new podcast, The Social Toolkit, on iTunes.
Love is in the air, and online as we gear up for the last stretch of the the 2013 Valentine’s Day holiday. While your friends on social networks might argue that this is an entire holiday made up by greeting card and candy companies, those brands who aren’t slinging the sweets have still been hard at work coming up with witty concepts to share with their fans today.
So if you haven’t already removed your ex from your timeline, sent a social media valentine, or sent a Facebook gift yet, these brands below will set your heart ablaze with their touching and creative examples of affection for customers online.
Everyone’s favorite social influence startup kept it light, and highly on-brand with this heart-shaped word cloud.
The current darling of Social Marketing, Oreo has created a number of these graphics with their cookies displaying messages you usually find on those candy hearts and is encouraging you to share them with a friend.
3. Bud Light
Bud knows that not everyone celebrates Valentine’s Day, so they’re allowing fans to tag themselves to the part of the photo they most identify with. Give me the 6 Pack.
4. Mayo Clinic
The Mayo Clinic kept it all in the family by dressing up the Mayo Brothers outside their headquarters in Minnesota.
5. Allstate’s Mayhem
Mayhem, the main character in Allstate’s recent campaigns, is always causing trouble, and Valentine’s Day is no different. Want your significant other to become a little more motivated? Share one of these on their wall, and good luck (might I suggest 1-800-Flowers who actually partnered with SomeeCards.com for some Valentine’s Day promotions themselves).
6. Firehouse Subs
Firehouse Subs is one of many restaurants offering Valentine’s Day specials, but their effort at consistently creating engaging visuals makes me smile.
