When starting your own nutrition coaching business, it can seem so overwhelming at first. There is so much to do and build that it may seem like you’ll never get your nutrition coaching business off the ground. Today in this article, we are talking about 3 simple things you can do to achieve success in your online dietitian nutrition coaching business as an online dietitian nutrition coach. However, before we get to those 3 easy ways to achieve success in your nutrition coaching business, first, allow me to introduce myself.
My name is Tony Stephan, and I’m a dietitian business coach. I help RDs make more IMPACT and more INCOME through nutrition coaching. However, before becoming a dietitian business coach, I was an RD nutrition coach (just like you!). I served thousands of nutrition coaching clients over a time span of 12 years. My successful nutrition coaching business is what led me to where I am today. Now without further ado, let’s talk about 3 easy ways to achieve success as an online dietitian nutrition coach.
ACHIEVING SUCCESS AS AN ONLINE NUTRITION COACH: FIND A SOCIAL MEDIA PLATFORM
It goes without saying that if you want to build a successful business, you need to be ready to get your name out there and start developing personal connections with people in your community. I say this often, but I’ll say it again and again because it’s so important! People only do business with those they know, like, and trust. So the BEST way to get your name out there and bond with potential clients is to find your platform on social media and be there consistently.
The great thing about finding your platform is that there are many different options in the social media realm. There are pros and cons to each social media outlet, but the wonderful thing about the plethora of social platforms is that you can choose a platform suited to your strengths. Are you a great photographer? Great! Maybe you could try Instagram as your first platform. Are you great with impromptu videos? Excellent! Maybe you could try Facebook as your first platform. Once you choose your platform, you have to be ready to foster it and give it a lot of attention so that it will grow and transform cold leads into people who know, like, and trust you.
HAVE CONVERSATIONS AS AN ONLINE DIETITIAN NUTRITION COACH
Besides having your own social media platform, you must also be ready to have CONVERSATIONS with people to build a successful business. Initiating conversations with people is something that can take most of us out of our comfort zone. However, it is necessary if you want to get people to consider you as an online dietitian nutrition coach. Think about it this way, people typically only do business with people they know, like, and trust. That’s why online reviews were created–so that if a customer DOESN’T know someone, they can get an idea of who they can TRUST based on the reviews.
So if you’ve NEVER made contact with someone who is your ideal client, and they are choosing between you and another RD who has engaged with them personally, who do you think they would choose? They will likely go for the RD they know, like, and trust!
It’s important to note when I’m talking about CONVERSATIONS. I’m not talking about a one-time, spammy message about your business. By conversations, I’m talking about genuine conversations where you ask, “How are things going?” or “What are your nutrition goals?” People won’t come to know, like, and trust you as an online dietitian nutrition coach from a one-time, spammy message. However, over time they will warm up to you if you are always showing up for them in a genuine way!
FIND THE MOST EFFICIENT WAY TO IMPROVE DAILY
The reality of being an online dietitian nutrition coach entrepreneur is that you have to constantly become a better version of yourself daily! So if you want to constantly grow and evolve as an RD entrepreneur, one of the best things you can do for yourself is to find the most efficient way to improve yourself daily and make it happen. It’s important to note that what you challenge yourself with daily could look different from day today. Ultimately having this in place challenges you to become 1% better each day which adds up over time.
Just like building your online dietitian nutrition coaching business, building YOURSELF to become the best online dietitian nutrition coach you can be WILL take time. So finding the most efficient way you can improve yourself daily will help you to always move forwards and never backward. Here is the thing about being an RD entrepreneur, not everything you do will be perfect, and that’s okay! Your clients aren’t looking for the “perfect” RD. They are looking for the online dietitian nutrition coach that positively impacts them and that gives them the SOLUTION they need. So my challenge for you is to embrace imperfect action and find the most efficient way to become 1% better every day!
