Need a February Marketing Calendar? Here are some of the main events and awareness days that you need to know about in February.

I’ve searched the web and found you the best items for this marketing calendar, from about 6 different websites.

My aim is to make it easier to plan ahead for your social media schedule, create a relevant blog post or email that speaks to your audience about something from this list, or even consider a limited edition product or service to capitalise on an event!

In case you didn’t know, February is ‘bird feeding’ month and ‘cherry’ month.

Which of these dates listed below will work for your business this month? What will your customers be interested to learn more about?
