Why Use Awareness Days?
Awareness days are very useful for inspiring content. Although I’d urge you to make sure you keep them relevant to your business, brand, message and strategy.
Use them as a prompt for content as well as THE content and don’t forget to use the hashtag!
I share a post at the end of every month with awareness days for the following month. Follow me on Instagram, Facebook or LinkedIn to see those. And I include a whole 12 months’ worth of awareness days in my Social Media Mastery Planner.
