Having trouble coming up with ideas for next month’s content? Writer’s block is no excuse to not send your monthly newsletter or update your blog with fresh content. Here are 10 ideas to write about for your agency’s blog in February 2021.
1: Groundhog Day (February 2)
Always celebrated on February 2, this folk holiday is a fun one to share on your Facebook page. According to legend, if the groundhog sees its shadow, spring will arrive early that year. If it is a cloudy day and there is no shadow, there will be six more weeks of winter weather. Here is some fun inspiration!
2: Spring Cleaning to Spring Maintenance
Take spring cleaning one step further this year. Level up to spring maintenance!
Provide your clients with a list of spring maintenance activities that can help them keep their homes safe, secure, and at low risk of home insurance claims. For example, having your home inspected for pests or cleaning out the gutters.
A safe home is a happy home year-round.
3: Hot Beverage Recipes
What's more satisfying on a cold winter day than a nice, warm beverage? Share your favorite hot chocolate or tea recipe with your clients so they can enjoy the sweet warmth as well.

The person with the most likes gets a gift card to Starbucks or another local coffee shop.

It's been a weird year, but we’ve still got the Super Bowl. At this point, it should be a national holiday.
Don't forget to post about the big game on your agency's social media channels. Take part in some friendly competition and post who you're rooting for. Share your favorite Super Bowl snacks or recipes. Make a fun photo contest and ask your followers to share pictures of their pandemic Super Bowl parties.
