Creating an effective Marketing plan for your health or wellness business starts with knowing who your clients are. Your goal should be to find out everything you need to know about your targeted market.
Just jumping out there and doing “it” can lead to a whole lot of headaches without first having a Creative Brain Storming session. So how would you get started in having a brainstorming session to grow your health or wellness business? First, buy a white board, or flip chart. Write out everything you need to know about your potential clients. Know where they like to shop, how much disposable income do they have? Where do they live? Is your targeted market male or female? Young, Middle-aged, or Seniors? What breaks them into those categories? What bothers them or keeps them up at night? Will your health or wellness practice solve their problems? If so, then how?
