f. Social Media

Social media websites are a great low cost method to promote your doula business and build your network. They can overwhelm. Try them out. Then focus on 2-3 that bring results.

Don’t spread yourself thin. It is just not possible or necessary to be on every social media site. What is important is to be consistent making contacts, interacting with “friends”, and posting useful relevant info such as links and photos.


  • Instagram
  • Pinterest
  • Facebook
  • Twitter
  • Google Plus
  • YouTube
  • LinkedIn

Try to post something every day. You can create content in advance and then schedule it to be automatically posted later. Check the social media site that you’re using, because they may have a scheduler built in for you to use with the site. You can also use a social media scheduling tool such as hootsuite or buffer.
