August used to be called the silly season in the national press and this month’s awareness days have one or two nods to that moniker. In fairness, there are always a good number of silly awareness days no matter what month it is. The less silly August awareness days for life coaches and counsellors are listed below so you can make use of them on your social media. Even Banana Day – healthy body equals healthy mind and all that.
As you’ll know, using the hashtag for awareness days is an effective way to get in front of new audiences. And they’re great for boosting your brand. Plan ahead so that when you’re scheduling your content, you include the relevant hashtags on posts going out on that day. Make a note in your diary for the days and weeks that will resonate most with your followers and potential clients. And, when you engage that day, remember to use the hashtag.
Do you have any created content that could be re-shared with the hashtag? Make the most of it by posting it again with the relevant hashtag. The same goes for curated content – add the hashtag for the day and post it again. If you’re looking for other quick wins on social media, this shares a few more.
The first step, though, is working out which days fit your business best. I’ve gone through all the awareness days for August and picked out those that best suit life coaches, counsellors and psychotherapists. The days featured have a wellbeing slant or lend themselves to one.
