Become a Recognized Name in Your Healing Modality
Want to get more clients? Then, get writing.
There is power in the written word.
With the Internet being such an accessible place to get your written word out, there’s no reason why you can’t become a recognized name in your healing modality in six months or less.
At no other time in history has it been easier or simpler to connect with a sea of readers, hungry for what you have to say. With one click of a button, your article can be submitted all over the world, your blog comment can be distributed to 50 million people, and thousands per day can read your on-line book review at Amazon.com.
The opportunities for becoming a leading authority in your healing modality have never been richer. Not long ago, this would have taken you many years, a great deal of effort, and lots of money. Now you can do it in six months, with a moderate amount of work and minimal expense. Listed in order of the quickest to the most time consuming, here are the top 5 tried-and-tested ways to get your name out there and recognized.
Top 5 Ways to Become a Recognized Name
- Leave a comment on someone else’s blog.
I’m not talking about a friendly word or a ‘like’. I’m talking about a health and healing related comment. One that shows your expertise and understanding. This isn’t about referring people to your healing practice; it’s about demonstrating knowledge and authority in your modality.
- Join a discussion group.
Look for health and healing discussion groups that are specific to your healing modality. Join Reiki discussion groups if you’re a Reiki practitioner. Massage groups if your specialty is Therapeutic Touch. Whatever your modality is, find an online discussion group. Answer questions. Offer suggestions. Above all else, get discussion going where you are viewed as an expert in your modality.
- Write a review for a book at Amazon.com.
Be the first to write reviews for all new books being published in your healing modality. Write in a way that other readers will “find your review helpful” and click to say so. It’s really not about reviewing the book. It’s about getting your name out there and demonstrating expertise as a reviewer.
- Start your own blog or Face Book page.
Start a blog and start writing specifically about your healing modality. Do not mix family and friend photos or heartwarming pet videos in with your professional blog or page. Stick to topics related to your energy modality. Don’t ‘share’ someone else’s video or post. We want people sharing what you’re writing.
- Publish a book.
This is the best way to get recognized as a leading authority in your modality. It’s also the most time consuming. Yet, if you take the time to do so, and get your book professionally edited, you can ‘publish’ it as an eBook on Amazon.com very easily. Then, send potential clients to sample a chapter for free.
Consistency and Frequency
The final recommendation for becoming an authority in your field is to be consistent. The more people see your name and your words on the Internet, the more they will remember you. Join in on online conversations on a regular basis. Start online discussions of your own frequently. Become known as someone who has insight to offer as well as something unique to give.
By following the advice in this article, you can develop a strong presence on the Internet and become a leading authority in your healing modality in six months or less.
