The Bad News is that, as you probably know, most health and wellness professionals lack the time, money or expertise to do their own marketing.
The Good News is that all the old rules of marketing can be thrown out the window. With more advertising money today going to Silicon Vally (Google) than to Madison Avenue, “What will bring in new clients?” is an ever challenging question being asked by marketing pros at every level.
Today, here’s what does work. A smart, short video that is posted on YouTube, sent to your email list and posted on your social media. In our current state of information over-saturation, cutting through the noise is easy if you know how and why this works.
Common wisdom is that the best marketing is when enthusiastic clients tell their friends about you. Today, the most effective AND the cheapest marketing is the next best thing — when they share your videos with their friends.
This relaxed and social gathering of Journal of Lifestyle Medicine advertisers and members of the Integrative Medicine Professionals Meetup Group is open to any professional in business to help people be healthier.
