How to Use Social Genie to Communicate About COVID-19 to Your Community
More than ever before, our entire nation (and much of the entire world) is exceedingly on-edge.
Most of us are now working from home (which has proven to be even more difficult now that our children are there as well). All of our social gatherings and upcoming events have been canceled for the foreseeable future. The shelves of our stores are practically empty – I mean, does anyone know where you can still buy toilet paper?? And on top of everything else, our hands are dry and chapped from constantly using sanitizer or washing them every time we turn around.
We all understand social distancing is imperative to slow the spread of this disease. At the same time, even the most reclusive individuals may be experiencing heightened stress or anxiety as a result of this extended social isolation.
This has put mental health professionals in a difficult position – you want to do everything possible to support your community, but you’re limited to only providing support from afar.
Sure, providing telehealth is the best solution to continue your regularly scheduled sessions with clients…

…but how do you keep in touch with clients who may not be scheduling telehealth sessions throughout this anxiety-provoking time?
In this article, we’ll explain how you can use Social Genie to support your community during COVID-19 while still maintaining more than the recommended social distance.
What is Social Genie?
Automate your website’s blog and social media activity. Social Genie makes online marketing simple for therapists and mental health professionals.
Our library has thousands of pre-written social media posts AND hundreds of blog articles on major mental health topics such as Anxiety, Telehealth, Nutrition, Marital Issues, PTSD, and more that you can edit, customize, and schedule to post at any point in the future on the day & time of your choice.
From articles to quizzes, and podcasts to inspirational quotes, our library contains a ton of relevant content to help you more easily engage with your audience online.
Use Social Genie to Engage with Current & Potential Clients
There’s no doubt that your website’s blog and social media networks are excellent ways to engage with both your current and potential clients online. But especially now when you’re not able to physically meet with these individuals, maintaining relationships with them online can be the best way to continue to grow your practice during this seemingly surreal situation.
That being said, to truly engage with your ideal clients online, you’ll need to post the exact kind of compelling content they’re looking for. Posting things such as inspirational messages, practice updates, or tips on managing anxiety or stress caused by fear of the unknown or social isolation – all of these are excellent ways to engage with current and potential clients online.
Not only that, but you’ll also need to do this on a regular basis and that’s where Social Genie comes in to save the day. Social Genie allows you to schedule pre-created content to automatically post to your website’s blog and/or social media pages with a few clicks of your mouse. It’s really as easy as point, click, relax.
Use Social Genie to Position Yourself as an Expert
These anxiety-inducing days are the perfect opportunity for you to take the lead and position yourself as an expert in your community. Therapists and Counselors are in demand today more than ever before. Show your audience that you’re especially prepared to help them during COVID-19 by posting helpful information to your website’s blog and social media pages.
To help get the ball rolling, we’ve recently released two brand new social media campaigns to Social Genie:
- Messages of Hope for COVID-19: a collection of over 50 pre-written posts about coping with stress and anxiety during the coronavirus outbreak
- Telehealth Teachings During COVID-19: a collection of over 20 posts written to inform your audience on the benefits of telehealth
- Happiness Help During COVID-19: a collection of over 40 posts focused on uplifting spirits and promoting happiness during this time
