    Wellness Content is King!

    In January, wellness takes center stage, covering physical, mental, and financial aspects. For health and fitness professionals like nutritionists and gym owners, build trust with your audience by reassuring them of ongoing support beyond “get healthy month.” Share plans for classes and events spanning the coming months, introduce loyalty programs for continuous engagement, and offer personalized birthday month discounts to show appreciation and encourage sustained participation.

    For mental health professionals, the start of the year provides a prime opportunity to emphasize the importance of ongoing mental well-being. Beyond the January focus, cultivate a lasting commitment to mental health by offering resources such as mindfulness exercises, stress management workshops, and self-care tips.  Encourage your audience to prioritize self-care not just as a New Year’s resolution but as an integral part of their year-round well-being journey.

    For financial advisors, wealth managers, and the like, try these ideas: Introduce special promotions or discounts on financial planning services for those who sign up or inquire during January. Create a sense of urgency by making these offers exclusive to the beginning of the year. Launch a campaign centered around the idea of setting new financial goals for the year ahead. Emphasize the importance of reviewing and updating financial plans regularly. Launch a financial wellness challenge or milestone tracker that encourages participants to achieve specific financial goals by year-end. Provide regular check-ins, resources, and support throughout the year.

    Don’t Forget to Use Those Gift Cards!

    After receiving gift cards, not everyone uses them immediately — or at all. A little under half of U.S. adults (47 percent) say they have unused gift cards, gift vouchers or store credits. surprised Good thing there is a day set aside in January to remind consumers to use the gift cards they received over the holidays.  Take advantage of this opportunity to encourage your customers to come in and use those gift cards.
