Sharing well written articles that may benefit “better living and wellness” are fine with me. I don’t think that a little bit of this “advertising” is going to offend most people. Too bad that there isn’t more wellness in general being advertised on TV. Don’t most of the drug company commercials just promote “bandages”, for our poor eating habits and lack of exercise??
I just scheduled a consult that was because I posted a relevant article. The article was on ACL tears in female athletes and low and behold I received a call from somebody that is post therapy from an ACL repair.
Don’t overlook this for free advertisement.
I post relevant content to the type of clients that I want or have experience training. Also I post content that will help my current clients stay on track or help to make healthier choices. Really anything that I feel is relevant to my areas of focus.
the sources that I have used lately range from the mayo clinic, My Plate, science daily, pub med, to precision nutrition articles and any other thing that catches my attention.
I have a business Facebook page which is completely dormant, and, quite frankly, I want to keep it that way. I created it because I thought I should, but now I cannot remember the reason why.
In addition to my own website and IDEA fitnessconnect, I send e-mails to my clients, and that does well for me. Another consideration is that most of my clients are not into social networking.
