Welcome to this month’s edition of “Social Media for Fitness Professionals”! Each month, I bring you three of the latest developments in the world of online social media, explain what each new development means for you as a fitness professional, and tell you how to take advantage of these trends to grow your business and communicate with your clients.
Here are the top 3 social media tips for May 2012:
#1: Monetize your Twitter Account with Chirpify
If you’ve been following the advice in this column, you may have found yourself getting more and more followers on Twitter.
So here’s a tip: Chirpify lets you link Twitter and PayPal, then sell things through Twitter…like e-books, photos, or even audio uploads!
Have you designed a quick new workout or recorded an audio presentation of pure gold content for your fitness audience? Put it up at Chirpify and monetize your Twitter followers!
#2: Start Using Pinterest
Pinterest is now the third most popular social media site. I know it can be tough to even know where to start when it comes to figuring out how to enhance your business with Pinterest, so I have an effective 1-2 combo for you:
- Make, take or create really compelling graphics, including photos of your gym, infographics, charts, photos of inspirational bodies or clients.
- Post them on your Pinterest page and when people click them, make sure that they bring people back to the blog or homepage of your business or your gym.
#3: Add a Google+ Share Button to your Blog or Website
Adding a Google+ Share button to your blog or website is a great way to make sharing your content very easy for your audience. Google has even given you code you can copy to set it up.
I’ve talked about Google+ before on this column, and it’s not going away anytime soon, so I highly recommend you add a Share button to your blog.
