A Guide on How to Start a Nutrition Blog

When you start a nutrition business blogging can be the perfect way to enhance and promote your products or services, in this article, we discuss everything you need to know to get blogging.

When you are just starting out in the world of nutrition whether that’s as a Nutritionist, Nutrition Coach or Nutrition advisor, it can sometimes be difficult to understand where to start in sharing your wealth of knowledge whilst also raising awareness of your services. Starting a nutrition blog can be a great way for you to start driving traffic to your services, and benefit from new clients as well as increased brand awareness. 

Where should you post your Nutrition blog? 

Find a platform

In order for you to gain the most from your blogging, you should invest time into building your own website on a platform such as WordPress, Wix or Weebly or potentially if you already have a website you should have a dedicated space for your blog. 

If you are starting from scratch with no website, WordPress is likely to be your best option and is most recommended for blog hosting. As you work within WordPress, it can be easier to navigate with the use of blog templates and plugins which allow you to add in additional functionality, clear design layout and consistent styling throughout your website. 

If you already have a current website which is yet to have a blog section, it’s important that you make this a clear and visible part of your website. This should become its own section which is included in the main menu of the site. When you have a blog, it is important you have a dedicated page which will show all blog posts, each time a new post is uploaded it should appear in this space.

The power of social media and website assets being used together can become very effective marketing tools for lead generation when utilised. This definitely isn’t a trick you should miss out on!

How to introduce yourself as a Nutritionist or Nutrition Coach? 

When working in the health and fitness industry, introducing yourself as the face of the service can be a really important part of being successful. Often clients will engage or take an interest in your service due to the personable experience they believe they will get, clients, need to feel comfortable and confident in you and the service you offer in order for them to want to invest. 

Introducing yourself as a Nutritionist or Nutrition Coach is a key part of doing this successfully. On blog platforms as well as social media, you should showcase your qualifications in Nutrition.
