3 myths about building a website for your health business (+ why you're not making a full time income yet)

3 myths about building a website for your health business (+ why you're not making a full time income yet)

Over my last 11 years of business, I’ve heard all the excuses for so many things (clients not drinking enough water, eating at the drive thru for every meal of the day, or even why they don’t have time to pee), but it’s not just limited to our health clients. I hear excuses every single day as to why wellness entrepreneurs and health business owners can’t build their businesses.

Not only that, but a questionnaire I recently sent out showed that although I had a good cross section of email subscribers with varying years of experience (anywhere from just thinking about a business to 5+ years growing one), with a background in everything from professionally trained nurses, chiropractors and naturopaths, all the way to self taught essential oil educators, one thing was the same across most of them:

80% of wellness entrepreneurs who were polled said they weren’t making enough money in their business.

I intimately know that feeling (see my business history here), and so I know that it’s not for lack of trying! I know how heartbreaking it can be to put your all into something that feels like it’s never going to have the level of success (or even a fraction) that you dreamed about.

However, I see a ton of wellness entrepreneurs pouring their heart and soul into things that aren’t productive, the top one being addressed as #1 below. You can work and work and work, but if you aren’t working on the right things, you’re just going fast in the wrong direction.

6 ways to use Pinterest to grow your health business

6 ways to use Pinterest to grow your health business

I recently sent out a questionnaire to my email list filled with health coaches, nutritionists, essential oil educators, real food bloggers, yoga teachers, chiropractors, and naturopaths (to name a few), and I asked them what they needed to know to build their businesses. The results are fascinating, but the top 3 things that people want to know is:

  1. Time management and how to focus on what will really grow your business

  2. Social media marketing; and

  3. Website marketing (including blogging, newsletters, webinars, etc)

What if I told you that there was ONE way to tie all of these need to know things together … and that it’s called Pinterest. You heard me: not Instagram, certainly not Facebook, but Pinterest.

Pinterest is the ultimate, under the radar social media platform that hardly anyone in our niche is using effectively, but the one that can bring you in qualified, potential new customers on autopilot, 24/7, 365 days a year.

Does this sound like something you want to know about? Then stick around to learn 6 ways to use Pinterest to grow your health business.

6 ways to use a blog to grow your business on autopilot

6 ways to use a blog to grow your business on autopilot

Websites have been around for at least 30 years, and blogs for at least 20. How can they still be relevant? Well, the answer is that they’re still incredibly relevant, but not if you’re treating your website like an expensive electronic business card.

What I mean by “electronic business card” is that if you don’t have an active blog where you share new, valuable content on a regular basis, your website is just a sitting duck, not really doing anything … kind of like when you hand your business cards out at networking events. 99.9% of the time, they just get thrown in the trash!

How do you make sure that your website doesn’t end up in the proverbial trash, too? By having an active blog where you share epic content. And I mean EPIC content that people can’t help but want because it’s so incredibly valuable to them and their problems that you want to help them solve.

But isn’t writing blog posts a huge waste of time and energy? I mean, who really reads blog posts anymore? Let me share some examples from my own business of how it’s grown on autopilot through my blog, even when I wasn’t actively blogging for months at a time.

Example #1: I have one particular blog post that I wrote in Summer 2016 that has been seen by over 31,000 people since it was shared on a certain social media platform, with 434 people clicking through to that particular blog post, resulting in 219 people opting into my email list. Which platform? Keep reading!

Example #2: Over this past summer, when I didn’t publish one single blog post for 4 months because I was overhauling my online course, I still grew my email list by 221 people (a 17% increase, which is NOT a small amount!). During that same 4 month stretch time, there was one entire month where I only posted 4 times on Instagram, and I wasn’t active on any other social media platforms, and my list grew by 75 new subscribers.

So, how would YOU like for your email list, number of paying clients, and business to grow on autopilot, just like I’ve experienced? If you’re nodding your head yes, then …
