Are you tired of being seen as being “reserved”, “shy”, “slow”, or not having ideas to offer up quickly in a group situation? And how you may not be as valued as those who openly display what they’re thinking? I used to think something was wrong with me. In group situations, for example, it would take me awhile to come up with ideas. I’m also someone who won’t talk unless I feel I have something valuable to say.
This is different from an extrovert who may have ideas coming off their tongue quickly in a group situation and has no hesitation sharing what’s on their mind. In our society, an extraverted nature is often viewed as being more favored as an introverted nature (even though introverts are just as intelligent).Have you ever thought how being an introvert can affect how well you attract patients/clients?
It can if you don’t use your introverted nature as an advantage.
The reason why many introverts have trouble with attracting clients is because they haven’t found a style of marketing that feels in alignment. Many well-known marketing gurus and teachers are extroverts and the marketing style they teach works for them. You may find yourself excited at a workshop or event, but when it comes down to taking action on what they teach, it’s not natural to you. No matter how you force it, things don’t happen in flow for you and it feels painful. If you’ve found yourself procrastinating marketing, consider that you may be procrastinating because you’re not using your natural style of marketing.
What are some natural styles of marketing for introverts and how can you turn your introverted nature to be an advantage over extroverts?

Comment below on whether you think introverts have more trouble than extroverts attracting patients/clients. If you identify yourself as an introvert, comment on whether you feel it’s a disadvantage or advantage when marketing your practice.
