Post About Friendship & Collaboration:

Love is on everyone’s mind this month, but it doesn’t have to be all about romantic love. February is a great month to spread the love and support other female entrepreneurs by showcasing your clients/customers, sharing accounts that inspire you, or featuring fellow business owners on your blog or social media.

A quick search for keywords like friendship or collaboration in the Haute Stock library will bring up results with women together in different settings like coffee shops, working out, or celebrations.

Collections in this moodboard:

Modern Femme, Rustic Travel, Collab Workday, Coffee Shop, Fitness


Friendship and Collaboration Post ideas:

  • Do a #followfriday feature every week this month where you share some of your favorite accounts to follow and why. Ask your followers to do the same.

  • February is Black History Month in the US and Canada. Follow, share, and buy from Black-owned businesses, artists, and entrepreneurs. Bring awareness to Black organizations, charities, and causes you support and donate to by highlighting them in Stories. Amplify Black voices by collaborating with fellow entrepreneurs, or hosting an Instagram “takeover” where a Black creative you love can share their story with your followers. 

  • Post about businesses that you collaborate with. Tell your followers why they inspire you and why you’re excited about collaborating.

  • Do a series of posts featuring your clients/customers. You’ll have the opportunity to show them some love, and it helps build social proof for your product/service.

  • Post about friendship and how you’ve made friends or how difficult you’ve found it to make friends since starting your own business. Ask your followers to post about their own experiences.

  • Post ideas on how one can support/collaborate with other small business owners. Ask your followers to tag their favorite small businesses and brands.

Post About Self-Love & Empowerment

Holidays like Valentine’s Day can bring up some negative feelings and memories, so it’s actually a good time to remind your audience to be kind to themselves. You can also use this month to empower and inspire your audience by sharing your own experiences, failures, and path to success.

Self-love and empowerment are broad subjects and it can look different for everyone.

Also think of things you do to show yourself love and search for those keywords when searching for images: flowers, self-care, meditation, makeup, and coffee can all be found in the Haute Stock library.
