7 Ways to Market Your Health Coach Holiday Promotion

If you have plans to offer something special for your audience during the holidays, you may be wondering how you can market it to generate sales and help as many people as possible. Well, my friend, I’ve got ya covered!

In a recent post, I covered 7 Health Coach Holiday Promotion Ideas, so if you are working on ideas for something enticing to offer this time of year, you can find that post here.

Something important to note is that you’ll have more success with your promotions when you show up consistently on social media and in people’s inboxes for at least 30 days before you share any paid offers (rather than only showing up when you have something to promote because that doesn’t work well at all – people need to get to know you and trust you first).  Ideally, you want to always be consistent with showing up to share helpful tips, hacks and insights with your followers and subscribers, so they get to see you as a reliable resource they can count on.

Okay, let’s move on to the good stuff…

Here are 7 Ways to Market Your Holiday or New Year Promotion for Your Health Coaching Business

Remember to include how your offer will help them at this particular time of year (what challenges/struggles do you know they will be facing in the coming weeks and how will your program benefit them)?

  1. Email your subscribers to share your special offer (send 5-7 emails over 5-7 days and send at least 2 emails on the last day).
  2. Share about your holiday promotion everywhere you are on social media, including video – livestreams, stories, and Reels
  3. Include static image posts for social media including, testimonials, client success stories, a sneak peek or behind the scenes of your program (a short video tour of the content if it’s an online program)
  4. Host a free workshop and promote your holiday offer at the end
  5. Run a free 5-7-day challenge, and invite attendees to your paid program at the end
  6. Invite your Facebook group members – do a livestream in your group where you showcase how your offer will help them, and open it up for Q and A, so you can address any confusion or objections they may have
  7. Run Facebook ads to your warm audience (your Facebook page followers, for example) if you have at least 1,000 followers, so more of your followers see your post. You can set a budget as low as $10 – 20 a day for this.

And here is one BONUS strategy you can use:

Ask a couple of colleagues (who are in a complimentary space) and/or friends to share the offer with their followers (do this sparingly and don’t ask the same friends over and over again). If applicable, let them know you will be happy to promote something of theirs in the future to return the favor.

You don’t need to us all of these strategies of courses, so choose what makes the most sense for you at this time. Once you have chosen your strategies, map out the the ones you will put into place and set deadlines and a time frame for each one. How long will your special offer or promotion be available for your audience? If you aren’t sure, 5 – 7 days is a general guideline. Keep in mind that most of your sales will come in on the very last day since people often wait until the last minute to purchase.

You’ve got this!  I can’t wait to hear how it goes!

3 Steps to Improving Your Video Content & Results

3 Steps to Improving Your Video Content & Results

3 Steps to Improving Your Video Content & Results

Improving your video content and results starts with your presentation skills. Whether your goal is to feel more confident on video or enroll more clients, this episode will be helpful.

These 3 steps can be used for workshops, livestream video, stories, Reels, pre-recorded video, podcast interviews, summits, wellness fairs, etc. For the purposes of this episode though, we are going to be focused on improving your live video presentation skills.

Incorporating a consistent video strategy for your business is the quickest way for your audience to get to know you, which means it will also speed up the customer journey.

Here are 3 steps to becoming a better presenter:

Step #1:  Use Notes (not read off of a script).

You can either keep notes on a piece of paper, a sticky note or Google sheet on your screen.

  • Notes will help you feel more confident in presenting.
  • Notes will keep your live video on track. You won’t wander off into too much information and you won’t forget a key piece of information that you wanted to share.
  • Notes are not only acceptable but encouraged. We both use notes and so do all great speakers.

Step #2:  Know where live video fits into your overall customer journey

  • Presentations in your customer journey can fit into a few different categories… client attraction, client nurturing, client conversion/enrollment.
  • Building relationships which is THE ONE KEY factor to getting clients and live video can do this faster than any other type of content.
  • Planning ahead for consistency is key so you are clear on the type of content you should be creating for each stage of your customer journey.
  • When you are clear on your customer journey and where in that journey live video makes sense, you’ll be an overall better presenter because you’ll be doing it with intention. You’ll also be able to track your results, (i.e.: conversions and engagement), to know if your strategy is working.

Step #3: Learn how to seed your live video with stories & information that naturally leads to program sales

    • There is a time to be seeding and a time to be direct (during a launch or promotion is when to be direct, attraction and nurturing is when to be seeding)
    • It’s easy to seed you program by throwing in phrases like “when I work with my clients” or “in my XYZ program where I create an ABC process”
    • Always mention success stories naturally “when I worked with my client Jane, she lost 15 pounds in the first 2 month we worked together. She shared with me that it was the accountability I offered that was a gamechanger for her.”
    • Quite often on the podcast we’ll mention wins and successes from students that have worked with us in the past in our Wellness Business Accelerator program. When we share stories about what we do in the program, student successes, or new additions to the program we are actually seeding that program. You’ll notice that more often than not we’ll casually mention that you can join the waitlist if you are interested in knowing when we’ll be opening the doors again.

Which of these strategies can you start using with your next videos?

Marketing Your Health Coaching Business on Social Media in 2022

Marketing Your Health Coaching Business on Social Media in 2022

Marketing Your Health Coaching Business on Social Media in 2022

If you’re using social media for your business, you’ve likely noticed some pretty big shifts last year with your ability to reach your dream clients.

It can be a lot to keep track of changes and what’s working right now on Facebook and Instagram, but we’re breaking it down and simplifying things for you with two key strategies you want to be sure to incorporate for 2022.

On this episode of The Wellness Business Podcast, you’ll discover:

  • The two most impactful social media marketing tools you must be using this year to get results, (this information is straight from Facebook and Instagram headquarters)
  • A simple way to get started using video that will make you feel more confident (no more stage fright)
  • The power of a Facebook group as part of your customer journey and why the latest tools being added make them even more exciting
  • Why using video and groups will be a gamechanger for your business and how they will finally get you in front of your dream clients on social media

This episode is a must for any health coach wanting to grow their wellness business in 2022.

Let’s look at what is working right now on Facebook and Instagram for your organic client attraction and client enrollment strategies.

Live video and Facebook groups.

We’re going to dive into each of these strategies individually to share why we feel so strongly about these two tools and why, if you’re a health coach trying to get clients through Facebook and Instagram, you absolutely without a doubt need to incorporate these 2 strategies into your plan for 2022.

Let’s start with live video.

Here are a few staggering stats to substantiate our position.

  1. Every day there is 100 million hours of video watched on Facebook
  2. There’s been an 80% increase in time spent watching video on Instagram, year over year since it was introduced in 2013
  3. More than 500 million people interact with Instagram Stories every day
  4. Facebook Live videos produce 6 times as many interactions as traditional videos

What that tells us is, whether you love it or not, your ideal clients want to interact with you through video. They 100% prefer this type of content over any other type of content on Facebook and Instagram and if you’re not showing up in this way you are going to be left behind.

A while back we did an episode on the podcast called: How to Conquer Your Fear of Live Video. It’s episode 171. If fear is holding you back, then now is the perfect time to listen in because video is here to stay.

Also, Karen has a Livestream Video Checklist that will help you feel more prepared before you hit the ‘go live’ button. We’ll link it up at the bottom of this post.

One of the easiest ways to dip your toe into the world of video is to do daily stories on Instagram and/or Facebook. They are quick because each clip is just 15 seconds long and they only last for 24 hours which means if you don’t love it you know it’ll disappear soon. You can do as many consecutive 15 second clips as you would like.

In doing research for this episode, we found a recent article that reported that How-To tutorials are the most popular form of Instagram video content, followed by behind-the-scenes, interviews, and news coverage. So, if you’re wondering what to talk about in your stories try how-to’s, demos, and behind-the scenes in your life and business.

Now let’s talk about the importance of having a Facebook group as part of your client journey.

When done correctly, a Facebook group can quickly become a community of your loyal fans that are warmed up to your programs and offers.

Let’s talk about some of the benefits of creating your own group:

1) With the ever-changing Facebook algorithm that determines what is placed in people’s newsfeed, it is exciting to know that each post inside your Facebook group gets increased organic reach for your group members. This can be especially helpful if you fear your posts aren’t getting the exposure they deserve on your business Facebook page.

2) More than 1.8 billion people are using Facebook Groups every month

3) As recent as November 2021 Facebook Announced New Groups Tools at Its 2021 Communities Summit. Things like…

  • New custom color and post background options for groups
  • Admins will also now be able to select the emoji defaults that users respond with in their group
  • Admins will also now be able to utilize feature sets to select preset collections of post formats and badges
  • They have also added an automated greeting message option, enabling group managers to outline key rules and guidelines for new members.
  • And, Facebook has officially announced its new Community Awards, which enable group members to allocate ‘Insightful’, ‘Uplifting’ or ‘Fun’ markers to posts and comments that they find valuable in the group.

And the list goes on.

When regular post reach on Facebook is down to an all-time low, Facebook has made it clear that for the foreseeable future they are putting a lot of their eggs in the ‘groups’ basket.

As online marketing continues to change and evolve it’s important to stay up-to-speed on which tools are being prioritized and which are now considered old school. We have to follow the trends that are proving to work, and in this case, we have Facebook and Instagram telling us exactly where to prioritize our efforts.

In 2022 we too are going all in on video and groups because we know that is where we’ll see the best results. If you focus on these two options as your top marketing strategies, you are going to see better results.

How to Plan and Promote Your Next Livestream Video for More Engagement

How to Plan and Promote Your Next Livestream Video for More Engagement

How to Plan and Promote Your Next Livestream Video for More Engagement

Live video still works incredibly well because you get to interact with your audience in real time, and when you plan and promote your livestreams ahead of time, you’ll see more attendees and engagement.

In this week’s episode of The Wellness Business Podcast, we are covering:

  • Why livestream video should be critical piece of every online business owner’s client attraction and sales strategy
  • Our 8-step process for planning and promoting your next livestream video for maximum engagement
  • Why interacting through live video speeds up the journey your dream clients have as they go through your customer journey

While all video content has its place, there is one form that stands out above the rest because it encourages a two-way conversation, as well as continued engagement rather than a passive viewing experience.

Here are the 8 steps we are covering on this episode:

Step 1: Choose a Date

Choose a date that is convenient for you, so you can be consistent. Most of your video views will come from replays so, do what works best for your schedule while also considering when your audience is most likely to be online.

Step 2: Choose a Topic

Your topic should be something that is compelling to your dream clients. Choose a topic that can easily be related back to your paid program. The easiest thing to do is to use something that’s easy to teach in 15 minutes or less.

Step 3: Create an Outline

Next, you’ll want to create your livestream outline. The easiest thing to do is to break your content down into three bullet points or three teaching points and one call to action, (A call to action is the next step you want your video viewers to take like, download a freebie, join your group, listen to your podcast, read your latest blog post, etc.)

A simple outline flows like this:

  • Introduce the topic/title
  • Introduce yourself
  • Teach 3 bullet points
  • Share the call to action
  • Recap and wrap up

Step 4: Craft a Compelling Video Title

Creating a compelling video title is more than half the battle of getting someone to watch your video. Every video title should let the reader know who it’s for and what it’s about. We also have a separate podcast episode dedicated specifically to writing high-quality video titles. It’s episode 214 and it’s called – 5-Part Formula for Writing Client-Specific Video Titles.

Step 5: Choose a Platform

There are many places that you can go live. A few of the most popular are:

  • Facebook (on your page)
  • Facebook (in your group)
  • Instagram Live
  • YouTube

Choose the one(s) where your dream clients spend the most time.

Step 6: Create a Promotional Graphic

My favorite place to create graphics is Canva. It’s easy to use, completely free, and has lots of templates to choose from. When creating the graphic, you’ll want to include the following:

  • Video Title
  • Date & Time
  • Where you’ll be going live

Step 7: Write a Social Media Post

One way to get more people to view your livestream, (both live and on the replay), is by promoting it ahead of time on social media. Let your audience know what you’ll be teaching and what they’ll get out of it. The best way to do that is by including 3 benefit / bullet statements that describe what they’ll learn.

The things you want to include in your post are:

Video Title
Date & Time
Location
The premise behind the training, (why you feel it is important)
3-4 Bullet Points describing what they’ll learn

Step 8: Write an Email to Your List

Now it’s time to write and send an email to your email list. For simplicity use the same bullet points and training description that you posted on social media. Be sure to include: date, time, topic, location.
