Spring’s nearly here after a loooong winter.  Time to spring clean your social media habits?  If you don’t already use awareness days then now’s a good time to start. It’s a great boost to your brand. But not all are a good fit. Below you’ll find a list of the awareness days in March 2021 that work well for life coaches and counsellors.

Using awareness days is a great way to reach 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.

If you have any created content that could be re-shared with the hashtag, then do it.

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