How to Use Vulnerability to Build Your Following and Your Practice
You probably already know that it’s important to come across as being genuine, but we’re going to go a step further and talk about how to use vulnerability to build your following and your practice. It’s not a ninja strategy, but it’s about letting people see more of the REAL you on social media. People tend to just show their highlight reel on social media, so it’s very refreshing to see people share some of what’s not so perfect from time to time.
If being vulnerable on social media makes you feel a bit squirmy, that’s a perfectly natural response, and this is something I’m working on right now too. Would you ever guess that being more vulnerable can actually help you grow your business? When you think about it, it really does make perfect sense because people are drawn to others who let their guard down and show they’re not perfect.
On this episode of The Wellness Business Podcast, our guest Kendra Perry, shares her story about how she started being more vulnerable and transparent on social media, and how it made her business take off.
Kendra walks us through how she’s been able to use a simple, yet extremely effective way of having deeper and more meaningful conversations by being vulnerable.
