Time to check out the best awareness days for coaches and counsellors this May – and there are plenty of them. Not one but two important weeks to flag this month. First up is Mental Health Awareness Week starting on 10 May. Then, hot on its heels, International Coaching Week on 17 May. And, if you’re an executive coach, you won’t want to miss the awareness day on 1 May.
Awareness days are 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/weeks that will resonate most with your followers and potential clients. Then, when and use the hashtag when you engage that day/week. Make the most of it!
Also, if you have created content that could be re-shared with the hashtag, then do it. Old content that could be updated and re-posted with the hashtag also works well.
The first step, though, is working out which days fit your business best. I’ve gone through all the awareness days to shortlist them for you. So, here are the best awareness days for coaches and counsellors for May 2021.
