Are you writing articles on your topic of expertise?
Most holistic practitioners and coaches know they “should” write articles, but the majority aren’t doing
it consistently. If you aren’t writing articles, then you may not realize the impact your words can have on the screen.
Beyond putting your fingers to the keyboard, there’s certain things you must do to write the right kind of articles that build your community. If you aren’t leveraging articles to bring new people into your “world”, you’re missing a major opportunity to shine as an expert and grow your business at the same time….and ultimately connect with clients you love.
Here’s a few reasons why you want to write articles:
Value for Your Current Clients
Your clients want to keep in touch with you and know that you are consistently Wellness practices for a healthier life connected to what’s most important to them. When you share articles with them, they see that you care about what’s on their minds and are available to them as not only a resource, but the resource. It also allows you to leverage your time by writing once and impacting many.
Attract New Clients
One of the main reasons to write articles is to attract new clients to your work. As a wellness professional,
potential clients want to hear your take on things and learn about you before they take the next step in working with you. Providing them value up front is essential to building a new relationship that turns into a lasting one.
Stand Out as an Expert
In a sea of holistic practitioners and coaches, you want to stand out and be known as an expert in your field. Whatever your niche is, you want to be known for it, and one of the best ways to be known is to share your expertise on your subject.
