Ep.4 – Hey yoga teachers, are you just on social media?!

After a story I encountered last week where a business owner woke up to find their FB and Instagram accounts had disappeared and trying to get someone in FB (or Meta as it’s now known!) to help them impossible, I felt compelled this week to encourage you to not just be on social media!

Main takeaways from today’s podcast

  • Do you have two-step authentication set up on your FB/Insta accounts – if not DO IT NOW!
  • You don’t and can’t be on every platform, be where you feel most aligned and happy.
  • See social media as the icing on the cake, the last 10%, the invitation to your yoga party, calling out those you think who may like your party, and be ok with some people not wanting to come!

But know

  • That not everyone is on social media.
  • Not everyone sees your content (aka party invitation).

If you’re just on social media you’re creating friction, those who are not can’t find you!  Not to mention the massive friction you’ll experience if for whatever reason you lose your accounts, and this happens ALL THE TIME!

Actions yoga can take now

  • Get a website, Wix, Square or Word-press can all help you quickly and easily create a good-looking site at not too much expense to you.
  • Or if you don’t want a website, have a landing page, a one-page website that helps people find out about you and buy your offers.  This can also be the one link on your Instagram page.

Email lists, landing pages and Mailer-Lite

Opening the door to grow an email list is one of the best things you can do. This can be done for free or at very little cost per month (like £9.99 pm)!  I love Mailer-lite; you can start using it for free and then the paid option will more than likely give you all that you need for life!   Plus, what’s more, it’s not just emails that it creates, but also landing pages, so you can solve your website and email list building issues in one go, at very little cost to you.
