American Heart Month | February
The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services states that "1 in 4 deaths are caused by heart disease." This statistic sounds alarming, but if you're a business in the health industry, you can do your part to help.
If your business specializes in selling foods, or supplements, provide deals on healthier products. Let your customers know that these promotions are directly influenced by American Heart Month.
These promotions provide a direct way to build more rapport with your customers. If customers understand that you are promoting healthier items to protect their health, they will feel appreciated. Don't be afraid even to add a personal message to inform them of the dangers of heart disease.
You can also utilize social media to post the different ways your business is pitching in to make a difference. Become the business that consumers want to continue returning to due to your ethical decisions.
