Welcome to a new blogging feature here at the Beautiful You Coaching Academy where we are going to present to you the very best round up of resources, tips and links from the web on topics that are relevant to building your life coaching, health coaching and business coaching business (and more!). We hope you find it incredibly useful and if there is a particular ’round-up’ of resources or topics you would love us to cover – leave us a comment and we will see what we can do for you!
Our first ‘Resource Round-Up is about Instagram.
If you’re a coach of any kind and you’re not using Instagram right now – you might like to do yourself a favour and take a look at it. We are all pretty visual creatures by nature and this photo and video sharing site, which can easily be accessed from your smart phone or tablet, is a breeze to use, fun, highly engaging, and can give your ideal clients a photographic glimpse into your coaching world – and your personal world if you choose too as well. You can use Instagram to promote your latest blog post, show you in action speaking at a workshop, make everyone drool over your latest health coach recipe, share an inspiring quote and give a peek inside your work day.
Here is the Instagram feed for the Beautiful You Coaching Academy and in particular our Beautiful You Life Coaching Course and inspired COACH Magazine. What you call your Instagram account is really not that important – it can be your name or your coaching business name if you have one. The more important thing is what you share on it and how you use it to engage others. I love it as a social media platform. In fact – it’s my favourite one right now.
Excited to get started or improve your use of Instagram for your coaching business? Here you go!
