Show Topic: Embrace Your Strengths. Fill Your Practice. Change the World with Allison Rapp
As a holistic practitioner, you know that every client is an individual and that what works so well for one person may not work at all for another.
That’s why it’s so ironic that there’s essentially ONE marketing strategy being taught by everyone right now, no matter what kind of business you have. That “straight out of the box” strategy probably won’t work for you, although the gurus will tell you that it will — if only you’ll DO it.
We’re going to talk about why you probably can’t bring yourself to follow most marketing advice and what works a whole lot better — building your business by unearthing and developing the strengths that make you unique, so that you can get more clients without feeling salesy or unnatural.
Holistic Practitioners are completely focused on transforming others… business coaching tends to take people through mindset transformations in order to break through the barriers.
Key differences with Holistic practitioners; it is very intimate so templates don’t work well in this situation, your own journey is the same as your clients, and rarely about making money, it is about making a difference.
Things that turn off Practitioners in the marketing content; making “6-figures”, hypey or salesy, not in alignment true self.
Biggest mistakes practitioners when marketing: knowing your ideal client, learning how to communicate effectively to you potential clients, committing to your business hours, and not asking for help from a mentor or a coach.
