*Don’t underestimate the power of platforms other than Facebook!
*Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, Google+
*Personal messages to your health coach friends
*Emails to other health coaches
*Talk to local practitioners. Chiropractors, Doctors, Gyms, Massage therapy office, health food stores.
***DO NOT POST YOUR LINK ON YOUR CLASS IIN WEBSITE***
IIN has a strict policy of no affiliate links. (although sometimes you will find some courses slide through the cracks)
They will pull your post, and on the 2nd or 3rd time, they will suspend you from the group.
Even if someone asks a question about a HCG product, answer them with a note saying “I would be glad to help you with your question. Here is my email address (insert your email address here, make sure you do this, so anyone else who has a question can contact you directly) and follow with you will be sending them a private message. If they are not your friend, let them know to check their “other” box
Check out the policies for Facebook groups that are for health coaches. Check in the “About” section of the group to see what their policy is for using affiliate links. Some groups allow you to use your link on certain days, or only twice a week. Mark your calendar and put it on a reoccurring reminder to post if it is on a certain day.
Be consistent! It takes someone on average of 7 times of seeing something before they commit to looking at something.
Offer a freebie with your post to entice people to sign up with you. Just like an optin, when people feel that they are getting something, they are more apt to sign up.
Ideas for a freebie:
simple e-book, THCG recipe book, a relevant PowerPoint, free online course, 3 Day Detox, the ability to work with you to learn the new products, etc.
*Don’t underestimate the power of transparent and open engagement of social media venues. Take yourself on a learning curve, spend at least 30 minutes a day on this until you find your “comfort” zone. It is not for everybody but it IS a very powerful marketing tool.
