1. Start a blog. A blog with good search engine keywords will always link back to you. You will need to do a very good search on what keywords are being used consistently by your competitors that are for recovery coaching. Begin to use these keywords in a blog that has good content and draws the listener in. Storytelling is a great way to get eyeballs on your site. Everyone likes a great story and any way to get people to your company website is a good avenue.
2. Making business cards is an absolute must. I cannot tell you the number of people I see at networking events with no business cards because they forgot them or just didn’t print them because they try to form relationships and not business. Put your photo on your business card for every event you go to because people want to remember you. If you go to a conference in the addictions industry you will meet 300 people and remember none of them but you will remember people who put their photo on their card.
3. Instagram is a great way to sell your services. Most people are posting photos of their toes in the pool or photos of their food. This is a no-no and you should be posting photos of motivational quotes and things you do and want to sell. If you’re selling coaching you should have posts related to coaching and hashtags that go back to the keywords in your blogs. When you are marketing it is so important that you do a multifaceted approach and if you are Marketing on the Internet you will need to use those keywords. Once you figure out what they are, they come in handy for social media such as Twitter and Instagram.
