35: Healthy habits for social media

  • by

In this podcast we talk about how to effectively use social media without letting it take over your life. 

Social media can be a total time suck or an absolute goldmine for your healthcare practice or wellness business. And on any given day, it’s most likely a little bit of both. But with some healthy habits and limits for social media, health and wellness providers can get the most out of using it for your business without wasting time and money scrolling on apps.

In this podcast we talk about 3 healthy habits for social media use

With some planning, you can still use social media for your healthcare practice or wellness business in a healthy way.

  1. Turn off notifications. Don’t tell me you let the social media apps ping your or email you every time someone makes a comment. Turn those off!
  2. Log out of social media apps on your computer. Setting that extra step of having to log in to your LinkedIn or Facebook on your computer makes you less likely to check the channels on a whim.
  3. Set a screen time limit on your phone. Locking your apps is key to predetermining how much time per day you or your team member are willing to spend on social media marketing. Sure, you’ll know the screen time code, but each time you use the apps, you’ll have to put it in and indicate if you want 15 minutes, an hour or all day. This puts you back in charge of your phone.

    About Wendy:

    I help service providers stand out by telling their story on websites, emails and social media. When it comes to marketing, the greatest waste is an idea that fails to connect to its audience – not because it wasn’t a good idea but because it wasn’t packaged as a great story.

    My goal is to help health and wellness experts stand out with content marketing. I’ve worked in marketing communications for nearly 20 years and experienced firsthand the rapid pace of change in this space. I launched Sparkr Marketing to help you stay ahead in this age of information overload. I’ll help you filter through the countless marketing tactics to find the right ones to reach your target market. Most importantly, I help your business stay true to your story.
