With the health and wellness industry growing more and more popular every day, it can be intimidating to grow your business in the sea of competition. I completely get it, it’s hard. You have to constantly stay motivated to keep going. Sometimes you feel like you’re having the hardest time just trying to stand out from the crowd. It’s not unusual to feel this way at all, but it’s essential to push through these feelings of doubt in order to reach your highest level of success.
Actually, it can be easier than you think to stand out in the health and wellness industry. It all starts with a mindset shift. Most likely, you’re overthinking things which can lead to frustration and overwhelm. Here are are few ways that you can add simplicity and peace back into your business while positioning yourself to stand out in your industry.
1. Focus on one thing
Many entrepreneurs just starting out in business make the mistake of trying to offer too many things to their audience at once. I get it, we’re multi-passionate and we have so many ideas to offer. However, if your audience isn’t clear on what result they can expect to get from you, then your offers actually become pointless because there’s no clarity.
You see, when you only allow yourself to focus on one thing at a time, you can take the time to perfect your offer and streamline the process so your clients can get the results you promised each and every time they work with you.
This alone is so important when it comes to standing out and having a successful health and wellness business, because when you niche down and focus on one thing, you then become known for doing that thing very well and it will be a piece of cake to stand out.
2. Be yourself
This may seem obvious, but not enough people are actually being themselves in business. The down side of there being so many examples of health and wellness businesses to emulate, is that it’s hard to separate getting motivated and inspired by others from actually being your own unique self and showing your own personality in your business.
Your audience will become attached, not only to what you do, but to who you are as a person. That is why you may see that some people you follow who have large audiences can practically sell anything, just because their audience admires who they are.
No one else on the planet is you, and that’s your superpower! When you just try to be your best self and show up in your business authentically, there’s actually no competition. The only person you’re competing with is yourself. People connect with the fact that there is an actual human behind your brand, so don’t be afraid to let your personality shine!
3. Streamline your brandingHaving a brand that stands out goes hand in hand with being able to stand out in your business. A big way that people recognize you and what you do is through your branding. Branding that represents your business well is essential. When was the last time you went on a website but clicked off and decided not to make a purchase because the website looked amateur or unprofessional. Have you ever scrolled though someone’s Instagram but decided not to follow them because their feed looked messy and disorganized? This is the power of branding. Even if you have the best offer on the market, if your brand doesn’t look professional and trustworthy, it can drastically reduce the chances of someone actually buying into your offer. You don’t only have to act the part, but you have to look the part as well. Especially, if you have high ticket offers, people are going to need to feel like they can trust you in order to spend their money in your business.
This makes it 10x easier for your audience to feel comfortable purchasing from you. There are many ways you can set up a brand strategy and create branding materials. You can use tools like Canva if you have the time to dedicate to D.I.Y. your branding.
However, if you’ve been in business for a few years, you might not have the time to create or refresh your branding on your own. This is why we offer our signature Brand Transformation if you are in a place where you need your branding to be taken care of by an expert. Our Brand Transformation service allows you to have every aspect of your brand taken care of from your website to your business cards. We’re here as a resource to help you get to your next level.
All in all, it’s important that you stay true to yourself at all times, stay focused and always represent your brand in the best way possible. Most importantly, don’t give up! Consistency is key in standing out in any industry. A lot of people get discouraged and stop what they’re doing before it has a chance to take off just because they’re not seeing results right away. Being consistent and constantly delivering value in your health and wellness business is half the battle.
