How to Increase the Quantity and Quality of Clients in Your Hypnosis Business

One of the best parts of being a professional hypnotist is the satisfaction and sense of purpose that come from helping people. Through hypnosis, you empower people to tackle their challenges, reframe limiting thinking, and improve their lives. That’s an incredible mark to leave on your community.

However, you can’t help anyone if you don’t have any clients. And the more clients you have, the more impact you can make. That’s not to mention that your business will struggle if you don’t have enough clients. So, how do you draw in more people interested in hypnosis? And how do you attract quality clients to your hypnosis business? Here are our tips:

Create a Strong Presence

Marketing isn’t just about placing ads where people will see them. It’s about connecting. Given the intimate nature of hypnosis, potential clients are more likely to become paying clients if they can first get a sense of who you are. An ad on the back of a bus bench or a flier in their mailbox doesn’t show them that you are a good listener or demonstrate your thoughtful, informed approach to your hypnosis practice. There are several types of outreach that will help you create a strong presence and connect with community members:

Community Events

Watch for community events that seem like a good fit for hypnotherapy. If there’s a neighborhood wellness event, sign up for a booth. A weekend fair featuring local businesses? Make sure you have a presence there. These types of events will allow you to meet people, answer questions about situations where hypnosis can be life-changing and provide information about signing up for sessions. Consider offering discounted sessions for people who sign up during the event. Be sure to have a sign-up sheet. Use it to follow up with interested parties.

Public Lectures

Because many people still think of hypnosis as a party trick or a Vegas act, finding ways to shift their thinking can bring them around to considering hypnosis for their challenges. If you capture even a few minutes of their time, you can help them understand the possibilities. Lectures are a great way to do this. Some hypnotherapists offer paid lectures. If you want to gain a following, consider free events instead.

Speaking at your local library, a local favorite coffee shop, or a community center can help you reach new clients. You can even reach out to local restaurants to see if they’d be willing to host a “lunch and learn” or similar event. They are often happy to do so, especially on slower days or during quieter times. They sell drinks and meals, and you spread the word about the power of hypnosis. You also get face time with potential clients, during which you can connect with them and plant the seeds of trust necessary for a successful hypnotist-client relationship.

Social Media

Not all your outreach needs to be in person. Create a robust social media presence across multiple platforms. Build a schedule to remind yourself to keep your content current and fresh. Everything from videos explaining what a hypnosis session is like to photos of your tranquil, appealing hypnosis space can catch the eye of potential clients as they scroll through their social media accounts.

The key is to create content that engages with your audience. While the point is ultimately to bring in business, don’t think of your posts and videos as advertisements. If you connect with people and help them understand what you and hypnosis can bring to their lives, you will be more successful than if they feel you are trying to sell them something. Educating, connecting, and revealing your authentic self will bring in more–and higher-quality–clients than advertisements urging them to “Call now to book before spaces fill up!”

Share your Enthusiasm

Look for opportunities to mention what you do. Chat with the stranger behind you in line at the grocery store. By the time your eggs and milk are bagged, they could no longer be a stranger.

Daily interactions are great ways to introduce people to hypnosis and help them understand it as a wellness tool. You don’t need to pitch yourself and your business, though always having some business cards on hand, should they be requested, is wise. The focus should be on mentioning therapeutic hypnosis and explaining, very briefly, what it is and what it can do.

Continue your Training

You need to be a great hypnotist to attract and keep high-quality clients. Fantastic Facebook posts or imaginative Instagram videos may capture attention. But if you can’t help clients reach a hypnotic state or your sessions don’t feel comfortable and productive, that attention will wander to something or someone else. Don’t focus so much on finding and connecting with potential clients that you neglect the core of your hypnosis business–being a great hypnotist.

Honing your craft, continuing to learn new techniques, and seeking advanced hypnotherapy training to further your education will help you turn prospects into long-term clients. Your marketing and outreach efforts convince them to try a session. Your ability to connect with them, build trust, guide them through the process, and help them achieve real progress toward their goals will solidify the relationship.

These approaches help you capture the attention of potential clients. They also demonstrate your knowledge of and passion for your chosen field. That can ensure that the people you reach are quality clients who believe in the power of what you and hypnosis can do for them.

These are the future clients who are likely to return after an introductory session or intake appointment. Increasing the quantity and quality of clients in your hypnosis business means increasing the number of people you can help and the size of your impact on your community.
