Laura’s Social Snippet: Since the beginning of time, humans have been storytellers! Don’t buck a system that is ingrained in our very existence and be sure you are using social media to tell your clients the stories they want to hear. For example, if you are posting about World Rabies Day, consider recalling that time a client called in a panic after a bat flew down their chimney and they woke up to find their cat batting it about. Never fear, their cat was up to date on their rabies vaccination! If you plan to use photos or names, be sure to check with your client beforehand, but if keeping stories anecdotal or anonymous, share away. With the number of cases you see, you likely have a story for any occasion!
