7. Interactive office hours. YourTango Experts have a fantastic opportunity to take part in our 90-minute, interactive office hours call each week. This is where YourTango Experts call in and our YourTango Experts Vice President, Melanie Gorman, discusses everything having to do with the business of online writing, therapy, and the business of coaching. Topics include how to write articles, social media, branding your practice, marketing, business, and much more. One of the most talked about and anticipated portions of the call each week is when the editors give out topic ideas for promotion and syndication that the Experts may take on as an assigned task if they choose.
YourTango Experts office hours take place every Thursday from 2:00-2:30 EST. The call is recorded and a link is sent out weekly, so that our Experts may listen to it at their convenience if they are unable to attend the live call.
