Results of Holistic Professionals survey

Thanks to those of you who participated in the first survey I sent out. Please let me know who won the gift card !  I want to make sure Survey Monkey passes it along from me to the winner.

Most of the respondents want to connect with other holistic practitioners (I encourage doing this for so many reasons).
57% want to learn more about how to promote their holistic business
50% want to learn how to increase the number of visitors to their website and increase conversion rates of those visits into some kind of action
50% are experiencing information overload / 50% are not
About 30% want tips on preventing burnout
Top ways new clients find the respondents: 84%  by word of mouth. Internet search, social media, and public speaking were the next most effective methods, in that order.
64% are not sure if their intended audience is aware of their existence
  • 92% have a Facebook presence
  • 75% are on LinkedIN
  • 45% are on Twitter
Half of the respondents want to learn how to optimize use of social media
The respondents slightly prefer webinars over teleseminars, and most prefer in person classes over any other kind
58% of the respondents want to be interviewed. Please contact me directly about that, as I don’t know who wanted to!  I’ve been doing some great interviews so far. I don’t know if I’ll be able to accommodate everyone, but send me an email!
I will be offering some webinars and more to help address some of these needs, as I’ve been immersing myself in learning this stuff. The first one will be the Top Ways for Holistic Professionals to Reach New Clients.  Stay tuned…
Thanks again and have a wonderful weekend !
