How to Leverage Technology for Your Nutrition Business

With the ongoing global pandemic, many of us have rediscovered the power of technology! Especially those of you who focus on helping others with health-related services.

It’s become nearly impossible to connect with nutrition clients in-person, and it’s important to leverage technology to continue helping those who truly depend on you.

Fortunately, you have plenty of options for connecting, informing, organising, and educating when you know how to properly leverage technology for your nutrition business!

Good tech improves communication and accountability.

Many professionals in health, wellness, and nutrition take a very hands-on approach when working with individual clients. No one can deny that COVID-19 has made this type of interaction both difficult and potentially dangerous.

However, using technology gives you the ability to continue to provide that personal touch without ever being in the same room!

Look for a video conferencing software that allows you to meet with your clients in real time using a high-quality webcam.

If you plan on demonstrating work outs, food prep, or other relevant activities, it may be a good idea to invest in a professional webcam, audio, and lighting system (and don’t worry, it’s not as expensive as it sounds).

You can also consider building up a video library that you can refer clients to for additional daily support.

Live interactions, email, texting, or social media can all help you stay connected.

However, if you’d like a personal branded approach to client interaction, consider The Health Sciences Academy’s Clinic Toolkit as your go-to interactive platform! You’ll have access to unique tools and a professionally designed platform made specifically for nutrition practitioners.

Track client progress in real time.

In addition to facilitating great communication, the Clinic Toolkit in conjunction with the THSA Nutrition Navigator™ gives you a unique way to measure client progress in real-time.

Track dietary habits, exercise, and even relevant behaviours daily – improving accountability and allowing you to make changes as needed.

Digital platforms can give your clients access to their own portal, where they can share their daily activities and exchange information with you.

You can also consider additional monitoring apps that correspond with the niche you’re serving. For example, you may be an Advanced Sleep Management Advisor™ and need to track when your client falls asleep, wakes up, and the overall quality of their rest.

To choose the best options for your practice, take a careful inventory of your client’s needs and what types of technology will help produce real results.

Learn more about food composition instantly.

Many of us have experienced the stress of having to dig through multiple apps trying to find at least one accurate source of information to share with clients (or even for ourselves)!

Fortunately for you – and your clients – The Health Sciences Academy has partnered with Check Your Nutrition to provide our students with “the Google of nutrition.”

The THSA Nutrition Navigator™ gives you a window into the world of food composition that’s more advanced than anything else being offered.

You have the option to adjust the amount and cooking methods of each food and to receive an incredibly accurate picture of the nutrition composition of every recipe.

In addition to this, you can also modify and build meal plans based on client demographics, health needs, and goals, which can be shared with your nutrition clients instantly using the platform features.

The THSA Nutrition Navigator™ is free to current students! Former students have the option of purchasing a discounted subscription for professional use. Interested? You can learn more by clicking here…

Gain an advantage over your competitors!

To effectively run or grow your nutrition practice online or locally, the right combination of technology makes all the difference in the world.

While you’ll definitely need to research and test the technology to discover what best works for you, it’s important to always keep the needs of your clients in mind.

Using tools you can brand, or ones created specifically for business in the nutrition, health, or wellness space will give you an advantage over your competitors.

Not only will you be able to access the latest nutrition information, you’ll also have the power of instant communication, real-time updates, and a professional platform that presents you as a polished nutrition professional.

Paper and pen may still work in a pinch – but technology has the power to help you stay organised and to better serve your clients!
