Summer’s on its way – hooray!  Plan ahead so you can tap into these awareness days, ideal for counsellors and coaches to use on their social media.

Awareness days are great for boosting your brand and getting in front of new audiences.  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 use the hashtag when you engage that day.

Do you have any created content that could be re-shared with the hashtag? Do it!

The first step, though, is working out which days fit your business best.  I’ve gone through all the awareness days for June and picked out those that best suit coaches and psychotherapists. The days featured have a wellbeing slant or lend themselves to one.
