I have started a blog, use facebook, and have a business website (www.ttattxfitness.com). I also am connected to LinkedIn, here on IDEA… so, how do I maintain these sites and make it a worthwhile experience for any active/current clients and at the same time intrigue prospective clients to partcipate or “follow” me. I am quite busy already, so I need to be efficient with my time.
I am currently under construction of my blog/personal website. I have it all planned out already to integrate all of the social media into my blog. The blog should help create efficiency and allow you to share your thoughts, successes, and information with clients/patients. You should keep your blog posted on all of these social media pages (facebook, twitter, linkedin etc). When you make new posts notify the everyone! Also, make it so people can subscribe to your blog because that will alert them when it is updated! Once you establish credibility with your work it will be a snowball effect from there and it should retain and take accessibility to a new level!
Fuel the Movement,
This was my other post to a social media Q.
Social Media is a EXCELLENT way to communicate with your clients/patients. It is not only a great avenue to communicate but it will serve also as a marketing tool. When others read upon the the communication and see that you are personable and are down to earth, up to date with current trends (aka facebook, twitter etc) you will only propel yourself, and your business. With that being said, results are always the BEST way to take it a step further. Document results with pictures and comments that EVERYONE can see (with consent from your client of course*) and the client/patient should be impressed with the care/compassion you took pride in displaying there hard work/dedication as well as having people catch on and gaining new clientele!
