What's up? Nice to see you here. :)
It's Matheus again.
I'll quickly walk you through some cheap *but effective* marketing strategies that we have been appling for some of our health partners. We know that the challenge for brands is to become the new source of trust. The digital boom has brought thousands of new options, formats, and variations. Now, we are entering the era of idolatry again, where we will redefine both how we buy and the brands we trust.
Coca-Cola will not be the same in 10 years, but now, the kombucha brand that emerged months ago and is gaining the spotlight and people's attention will have much more market share than it does today.
Well, understanding the significant role (which, by the way, is impossible to measure in two paragraphs) of the wellness industry, let's now delve deep into the key insights of our topic today. Here are some budget-friendly and impactful marketing strategies to elevate your wellness brand:
1. Defining Stakeholders: Building Community Connections
Identify and collaborate with key stakeholders in the wellness space. For instance, if you sell yoga pants, consider partnering with yoga teachers, gym owners, or fitness influencers. These collaborations can expand your reach and build credibility within your target audience.
2. Harness the Power of Facebook Groups
Engage with your audience on a personal level through Facebook groups. Join relevant communities and participate in discussions. Friendly introduce yourself, offer your support whenever you feel tha it makes sense for you, share valuable content, answer questions, and subtly introduce your wellness products. The trust you build within these groups can translate into loyal customers.
A good way to connect with people is by seeing who likes, comments. These are the people that heavily use facebook and can support you somehow.
3. Embrace Short-Form Videos: Reels and TikTok
Tap into the immense popularity of short-form videos on platforms like Youtube Shorts, Instagram Reels and TikTok. Schedule your routine to be able to create engaging content showcasing your wellness products, sharing quick tips, or featuring customer testimonials. Develop a consistent posting schedule to maximise visibility and effectiveness. You can do it by defining two main topics and breaking them down into smaller pieces of contents. After that, organise a scenario, buy the mic and smash it. The shorter, the better. Try to capture small takes, time lapses to build your monthly content. It's hard when you have to stop every day to record content, but when you dedicate a full day (or two) to do it in order to move things up - everything becames easier.
4. Cultivate Brand Ambassadors
Identify potential ambassadors who align with your brand values. Reach out to fitness enthusiasts, influencers, or satisfied customers who may be interested in representing your products. Offer them incentives, such as discounts or exclusive perks, to foster long-term relationships and generate authentic endorsements.
5. Commission-Based Salespeople
Expand your sales team without a fixed salary commitment by exploring commission-based sales. Seek individuals passionate about wellness and fitness who can promote your products on a commission basis. This mutually beneficial arrangement motivates your sales team to drive results.
6. Establish Your Presence on Shopify
Create a centralised hub for your products and customer management by launching your online store on Shopify. This platform provides a user-friendly interface, making it easier for customers to explore and purchase your wellness products. Streamlining your sales process can significantly enhance efficiency.
