It’s time again to reflect back on the past year and set goals for the future. Connect with fans and help your team members achieve their New Year’s resolutions by sharing them through this fun social media activity!
New Year’s resolutions are notorious for being quickly forgotten. Whether we vow to exercise more, stick to a budget or keep the house organized, by January 15th we’ve too often decided that we’ll really get serious about it — next year. When willpower isn’t enough, social connections (made in person or online) can help us reach our goals!
In an interview with Forbes, psychologist Paul Marciano explained that one of the best ways to stick to a New Year’s resolution is to share it with other people who can hold you to it. This January, let’s put that principle to the test! Here’s how:
- Download our free New Year’s Dental Social Media Pack, which includes post images you can use and printable Social Signs.
- Print out a few copies of the “My New Year’s Resolution Is ____” Social Sign and distribute them to participating team members.
- Have each team member fill in the blank with their resolution, snap a photo, and share it on your social media pages!
- At the end of the month, look back at the posts you created and follow up with each team member on their progress.
Aside from building team unity, this simple activity can help you generate interesting social media content and build your online presence. Our client practices consistently report that sharing photos of team members is one of the best ways to kickstart social media engagement. You might even announce that fans who comment with their own New Year’s resolution will be entered to win a small prize!
