Connect with 1,300+ social-media loving health coaches and wellness pros
I started the Social Media for Health Coaches group on May 18, 2013, when I was a student at the Institute of Integrative Nutrition. I’d seen my fellow health coaches regularly ask questions about social media marketing and wanted to help them. Flash-forward a year, and our little group’s grown by leaps and bounds. From Pinterest, to Instagram, to FB and Twitter, we cover all social topics. We also talk about blogging, but a health coach friend and I started a spin-off group (read on!), and much of our discussions on that topic moved there. SMFHC group members share tips and strategies that are working for them and ask questions of the group. I post something at least 1x per day (more often on weekends), and I regularly answer questions and comment on other people’s posts – doing my “thing” as the community manager, you know?
Here’s what one of my group members said about the value she gets from the Social Media for Health Coaches group:
To join the group, search for Social Media for Health Coaches on Facebook … or visit the page now. I’ll send you a welcome message and share our group’s “rules of the road,” with #1 being no spamming or anything too self-promotional as we’re social media talk 24/7 there.
Join 400+ health and wellness pros who blog – or want to
A health coach friend, Lou Ann Donovan, and I formed the Health and Wellness Bloggers Group January 1, 2014, and it’s been a great place for many to be inspired – me included – by wellness pros who are actively blogging, like Mike Iamele, or those who want to get started. Every week in the bloggers group we do a fun activity, the Thursday Thread, where group members get a chance to share a blog post or two from that week. We ask people who participate to not just “link and run,” but to share something with the group about their blogging process, or how they got inspired to write the post, or where they found the image, etc.
One of our group’s members had this to say about the value of the bloggers group:
To join the group, search for Health and Wellness Bloggers on Facebook … or go there now to join. I’ll send you a welcome message and share our group’s rules – and they’re very similar to the Social Media for Health Coaches group – i.e., ask for help, give help and #nospamming.
