Are Your Business Challenges Being Addressed?

Business Challenges

My latest light-bulb moment was born at a community event in celebration of the opening of a local play park, two doors down from where I live. It was a small intimate community event, the kind of thing you normally go to on a Sunday because it is local and well, free. I had a wonderful time mingling with the locals and getting to know the other parents better. Yet I was surprised to hear different languages around me and to observe different ethnic and age groups living in our area; partly because most of them are private people who keep to themselves, but mostly because I had a complete misconception about our local community demographic. And what was my (incorrect) assumptions based on? Well, mostly hearsay and ignorance I guess!

I had such a lovely time at the park that day getting to know my community that it has inspired me to take a good look at the other assumptions I operate on, especially bringing it home to how we run our business. Read more

Ten Tips For Branding Yourself and Establishing Your Online Presence

Online presence & branding blog

It was exactly two years ago that I made a very purposeful and conscious decision to establish an online presence for myself. I had already gained some traction, though not much, on social media through my sporadic but valuable posts and shares about how essential oils had become such a game-changer in my small family’s life. I remember so vividly the feelings of fear and self-doubt creeping in as I was making this decision. I remember thinking I don’t have what it takes to make it online, or I would never amount to these successful entrepreneurs and wellness coaches that are already attracting their tribe, helping and serving so many people. I just didn’t think I had what it took to “make it online”. I didn’t even comprehend what it actually meant to be successful online but I knew that it was the journey I wanted to be on.

How to write a stellar blog – A Practical Guide

For many allied health professionals and small business owners, writing a blog is a challenge. Not only does blogging take time but writing for the web is very different to any other medium. There also seems to be a genuine lack of reputable and informative information out there on how to structurally compose a blog. There are loads of resources on how to “start” a blog but none of these really hone in on the skill of writing quality posts. Understanding the structure of a blog post so that it informs, engages and educates your audience is the key to success, so let’s take a closer look at this for a minute.  As always I will demonstrate with examples for allied health professionals, but the principles in this article can be applied to any industry.

5 Easy Steps to Content Curation

Content Curation Allied Health

Two weeks ago I gave you my Top 10 Ideas for content creation which I hope you have been able to implement and share across your social media platforms. This week I want to look more at content curation – which according to Pawan Deshpande, CEO of Curata – is defined as the process whereby

“an individual (or team) consistently finds, organises, annotates and shares the most relevant and highest quality digital content on a specific topic for their target market.”

Content curation becomes important for you as a small to medium allied health practice owner because it saves time. You already do not have enough hours in your day to get through your case load, so having to consistently come up with and create original content for your audience leaves you even more strapped for time. Content curation enables you to source and share interesting, relevant and evidence-based content that is going to add real value to your target market. In doing so it builds authority and enables your audience to trust you. In this information-saturated world we live in, trust and authority help you stand out from the crowd.
