Of course, you’re aware that it’s Tuesday or Wednesday, etc. (I hope!) and the date.
However, as a chiropractor and someone who is probably running their own practice, it’s also important to know when special days are coming up that observe chiropractic, health, and wellness.
For instance, May is Posture Awareness Month – the perfect opportunity for chiropractors to educate the public and promote their services.
On these days, weeks, and even months of observance, it’s a great opportunity to educate the public about what you do and how you can help them, as well as run specials, promotions and events. Likewise, the media is always looking for stories and credible professionals to interview or contribute during these times – a great way for you to get invaluable public relations.
Remember to organize your promotion, press release, or social media marketing well ahead of time and have fun – this is your day (or month) to shine, letting the world know what you do!
Here are some dates of observance that revolve around chiropractic, and then others that are more indirectly related to chiropractic but involve health, wellness, diet, disease, and natural healing. It seems like a lot of them center around the springtime, and then again the fall, so get ready!
