Summer’s arrived and, with it, here’s the list of awareness days for life coaches and counsellors this July. Plan ahead so you can make the most of them in your 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, when you engage that day, remember to use the hashtag.

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 July and picked out those that best suit life coaches, counsellors and psychotherapists. The days featured have a wellbeing slant or lend themselves to one.
