Listen, you already know that navigating the health and fitness industry is no walk in the park!
With 1,000’s of practitioners, countless methodologies and a booming interest in personal well-being, standing out and earning trust in this space can feel overwhelming – regardless of your qualifications and certifications.
If you’re a health related business owner – or, in charge of marketing for any health related business, there are three (3) “Pillars of Success” that will absolutely amplify and project your influence and credibility — resulting in increased sales business growth.
1 – The Power of Professionalism
First impressions matter.
It’s an age-old adage but rings especially true in the digital age.
When potential clients stumble upon your website via “search” or “referral,” it’s their first glimpse into what you offer and who you are. It truly needs to make an impact.
Among prospects unfamiliar with your business, your character, skill set, and overall business ethos will inevitably be judged by your website’s look, content, and perceived professionalism.
Your website is your in-depth digital business card.
Even though you might have an array of skills, degrees and certifications, if new prospects are presented with a clunky, outdated website, all of your qualifications are perceptually “thrown out the window!”
Investing in a well designed, user-friendly and professional website is paramount. It should articulate your expertise, values and services, while also being easy to navigate.
Remember, people are looking for solutions to their health concerns. Your website should make it effortless for them to find those answers with YOU.
Do I really need to mention your physical appearance and your facility space regarding professionalism?
2 – Visibility is Key: Showcase Your Expertise
While having a solid online presence is crucial, there’s immense power in personal connections.
This is where “old school” methods of networking are crucial.
Public speaking, presenting at seminars and providing workshops are key to differentiating yourself and your business from fitness posers, wannabes and lesser competitors.
By placing yourself in front of mass volumes of people, you’re not just presenting a business; you’re showcasing your authority.
When you speak at seminars, workshops, health fairs, or even business meetings, you’re allowing potential clients to witness your passion, knowledge and authenticity in real time.
Remember, health is personal.
People want to trust those they turn to for guidance. By demonstrating your expertise in these settings, you foster immediate trust and create genuine connections.
The truth is…. 99% of health professionals never do any of this – and remain almost invisible even within their own market areas.
So, step out of your comfort zone, prepare that presentation, and let the world see and experience the wealth of knowledge you bring to the table.
3 – Over-Deliver on Your Promise
You know this is where the rubber meets the road. You have a super professional website. You’ve showcased your expertise. But when it comes down to it, can you deliver?
Of course you can!
This is the one element that probably comes easy to you.
The health industry thrives on trust. Clients entrust professionals, like you, with their most valuable possession: their well-being.
This is not a responsibility you take lightly. As such, you not only deliver on your promises, but probably go the extra mile that sets you apart.
Like most credible trainers, coaches and wellness professionals, you’re hands-on with your clients, communicate effectively and show genuine care and commitment.
Whether it’s sending them a follow-up message, tailoring plans to suit individual needs, or just lending an empathetic ear, these personal, yet professional touches make all the difference.
Clients will always remember how you made them feel.
And when you exceed their expectations, not only do you solidify their trust, but you also pave the way for glowing referrals and testimonials.
You’re Good, but…
Here’s the point…
No matter how good you are. Regardless of your qualifications and experience.
Even though you deliver on your promises and help your clients achieve amazing results, you MUST take care of Pillars #1 and #2 before you’ll ever get the chance to prove yourself with Pillar #3.
As a health professional, you should keep these three attributes at the forefront of your operations.
With a high level of professionalism combined with a high level of visibility, you’ll set yourself up for unparalleled success in an industry that thrives on trust, credibility and results.
