Happy almost Valentine’s Day! These past couple of weeks companies from all industries have been capitalizing on this gift-giving time of year. Couples of all ages who celebrate Valentine’s Day traditionally purchase various presents for their loved ones, so businesses view the end of January/beginning of February as an excellent time to launch new promotions. Since social media has become a growing trend for organizations, there have been numerous invitations for consumers to engage in sharing their Valentine’s experiences on social media sites. I recently discovered an article published by Nation’s Restaurant News that highlights some of the social media promotions that restaurants have launched this past month in hopes to boost their sales. My personal favorite is Qdoba’s offer to give away a second smothered burrito for free to any couple that kisses in the restaurant.
