Are you just starting out as a health coach? I remember when I first started; I was like a deer in the headlights. Little by little, I discovered helpful resources that I now use all the time in my business. I’m still figuring things out and I always will be. How boring to stop learning, right?
In this post, I’m going to share a few of my favorite resources that I use to make my life easier. There are plenty of great, free resources out there, and I hope you find these helpful.
Okay, let’s roll!
Creating eye-catching images.
I always say that I know just enough to be dangerous with this and I also find it a lot of fun. Admittedly, this is usually not the best use of my time, but I also find it almost therapeutic. I just dig it. I know; I’m weird that way
My 2 favorite sites for creating and editing images are picmonkey.com and canva.com. I find picmonkey to be a little more user-friendly and intuitive, but I think you can be more creative with canva. From killer Facebook cover images and website headers to making images to share on social media and Facebook ads, these 2 websites are perfect. Both of these sites offer free versions.
Royalty-Free Stock Photos
The site that I have found that has the best prices on stock photos is dollarphotoclub.com This site only charges $10 per month for 10 images, then each image after that is only $1 for the month! I used to pay $15 or more per image (ouch!).
Great app! For creating fun, eye-catching, motivational quotes, text over images, etc., I use an app called “WordSwag”. These images are great to share on social media. This app is only $2.99 and well worth it! Warning: Can be addicting! Here’s just one simple example below.
Landing Pages (aka ‘splash pages’) and Sales Pages
A landing page is a stand-alone page that you can use as a registration page for an event, a sales page or opt-in page to collect leads (email addresses). This also comes in handy when you just want to create a quick, simple page that has a high conversion rate. The templates from LeadPages are designed to be attention-grabbing and action-taking for your audience.
This program gives you plenty of professional-looking, high-converting pages that you can set up quickly, as well as options like adding your opt-in to your Facebook page with just 4 clicks. Lots of other goodies and options with this program that are amazing!
I heard about how great Lead Pages is and now I know why. I have been using it for a few weeks now and the possibilities are endless. Depending on which plan you choose, pricing starts at only $37 per month. It’s definitely worth checking out and you may wonder how you lived without it too. They have great video tutorials to walk you through setting everything up.
Learning From the Success of Others
One of the things I absolutely loved about the Institute for Integrative Nutrition was the learning style. I enjoy listening and learning in small pockets of time: driving in the car, folding laundry, making dinner, etc. Podcasts are something I listen to every week and I have quite a few, but I’m going to share my top 4.
- Online Marketing Made Easy with Amy Porterfield
- Wellpreneur Online with Amanda Cook (fellow IIN grad)
- Social Media Marketing with Michael Stelzner
- Marketing in Your Car with Russell Brunson
It was difficult to limit this list to just 4, but these are the ones I listen to the most and I highly, highly recommend. I firmly believe that if you want to succeed, it’s important to surround yourself with successful people. Podcasts are the next best thing to hanging out with the top dogs, in person.
I’ll be sharing more helpful resources from time to time so let me know which ones you can’t live without too.
Remember, you become the average of the 5 people you spend the most time with. Do you have 5 people in your life that lift you up, support you and challenge you (in a positive way)? This is another reason why I love podcasts, because I feel like I can surround myself with successful people even if it’s only virtually.
