Notable Quotes

“Your audience is unique, and you are unique, so what works for you might not work for someone else. And you really have to try something for about three months, look back at your analytics and be like, what worked and what didn’t, and then do more of what worked and let go of what didn’t.”

Episode Summary

Marketing is a part of any business, and as health coaches, we’re no different. One way to get ourselves out there and get people—potential clients, that is—to know, like, and trust us is through social media platforms, where we can, hopefully, lure them out of the social media platforms and our programs.

In this episode of Health Coach Academy, we’re talking to the Founder of Lil Shameless Plug, Lauren Litt, to walk us through the power of having a social media presence and the wonders it can do to our health coaching businesses.
