To succeed in this world takes maximizing your potential. A life coach is professionally trained to help you reach your goals no matter what area of focus you need help in. The four (4) main areas to niche within are relationships, health, leisure, and career.
Covering all the bases at once is like trying to butter everyone’s toast. There’s simply not enough of you to go around to help everyone at the same time. Marketing is also much simpler when you focus on one area of life and go deep into that particular topic.
Choosing a niche is one of the most challenging parts of starting an online coaching business. If you are just starting out and you’re looking for a profitable niche, this list will give you some of the most profitable evergreen niches. Each of these niches is popular, and they will stay that way. In the social media marketing world, competition is good, because it allows you to piggyback on the success of larger sites and communities.
Anything that is repetitive in your business can be outsourced. The same goes for information. Anything you teach or require from your clients can be documented in a step-by-step format that helps your clients progress, saves you and your clients time and money, and with the right marketing could bring you a healthy passive income stream.
If you find yourself repeating things as a coach that you consider pre-requisite knowledge before you can help your clients achieve their goals, creating a course would give them the foundation they need to be able to work with you.
A course is a direction or route to be taken to achieve an outcome. It can be...
Nearly every client that comes to me wants to do a webinar where they'll pitch an offer at the end.
Nearly every client is disappointed in results....Not the results of how many signed up (we get tons of sign ups), but the results of how many showed up and purchased their offer.
Ultimately, we end up taking a different path to test the market, which is usually what I recommend up front.
But people are stubborn! They think just because Amy Porterfield has a gazillion people buy her program with her webinar formula, that theirs will bring the same results.
The difference between you and Amy Porterfield? People already know who Amy is. They don't know who you are....yet!
It used to take 7 to 12 touches before someone would do business with you. For digital marketing, it's more like 12 to 24 touches. That doesn't mean you bombard them with the same ads over and over again. You've got to shake it up and produce consistent, valuable...
Marketing is a scientific process that starts with theoretical ideas that must be tweaked and adjusted based actual results. Landing pages must be tested, reformatted, duplicated, and updated to find the right formula for every business. No two sales funnels are alike, and not every page, image, message or video resonates optimally.
Because the nature of marketing is so volatile, keep an open and flexible mind when crafting your sales funnels. The ebb and flow of the market is an ever-changing landscape.
Landing pages are anything from opt-in pages to thank you pages to webinar sign ups or sales pages. Think of a staircase with landings on it. Every time someone climbs a floor, there is a landing where they can rest or gather information needed before advancing to the next level.
Sometimes they remain there and never advance. Sometimes they leave the staircase altogether. Other times they move forward, which means they are getting closer and closer to buying...
There are 3 phases of advertising: Awareness, Consideration, and Conversion. Most people want to start out with the Conversion phase (also known as the Close phase) to sell their goods and services without properly warming up their audiences. This is too much too soon. It would be similar to walking up to a perfect stranger and asking them to join your $3,500 mastermind.
Imagine having a storefront. How do you get foot traffic there? You can rely on surrounding stores to bring traffic, put up flyers, advertise with billboards, use Facebook or Instagram ads, etc.
These methods of advertising are to cold traffic or audiences, those who may not know anything about you.
To translate this to digital relationships, these would be the people who are just seeing your Facebook ad for the first time or coming across your website somehow, either by you sending them there through social media or by their search on Google or Bing...
So many entrepreneurs post business ideas on their personal profiles. This is against Facebook's Terms of Service and can get your account shut down. To avoid this, you want to keep your business activities on your Facebook Business Page where they belong.
"But no one is looking at my business page!" you cry. That's because you haven't given it enough attention or time to grow.
For those of you who have been posting away on your personal profiles for so long, and you've built up a fan base there, it sure would be nice if you could advertise to those friends, wouldn't it?
While you are building content and engagement on your business page, here's a workaround to get ads out to your friends that you've been interacting with on your personal profile.
Create a new business page. Don't ask anyone to like it. You like it with your own personal profile. Then when...
Wow! What a conference! There was so much energy in the room, excitement for the future, and fantastic advice from top-notch speakers. I'm talking about the Kajabi Impact Summit in Irvine, CA.
This gal traveled from Nashville to Los Angeles, rented a car, and drove south to Irvine, the headquarters of Kajabi, the premier marketing software. While there, I met current clients and hopefully will gain a few new ones from the many connections made.
Jonathan Cronstedt (AKA JCron), President of Kajabi, was an incredible master of ceremonies with his dancing and joking, keeping the crowd energized and laughing. He had us all in stitches with his Baby Shark dance and aspirations of moving it like Usher. He also shared some great information about the status of the knowledge commerce industry, you know, digital courses, online coaching, and the like.
Here's a beautiful graphic summary by Kelly Monroe, a talented artist who took...
When attending an event, it's important to gain attention. One of the ways you can do this is via advertising. Advertising on Facebook, Instagram, and Snapchat can raise awareness to others that you are at this event, especially if you are a presenter or sponsor with a table or booth.
On Facebook (and Instagram), you can choose a specific address in the targeting field and choose a radius from 1 to 50 miles away from that address. You can also select zip codes, city names, states, or an entire country. Depending on where you are, pinpointing down to a specific address, such as a conference center or arena, can help you reach the people attending the event. You can also 'drop a pin' on a map if you don't have the exact address.
Be sure to select Everyone in that location, so you don't miss anyone.
Snapchat allows you to create geo-filters and hover over a location of your choosing. Some...
My father was a writer. He wrote family stories while he did genealogy research. He didn't just go to county archives to look for marriage and death records. He reached out to people before there was this thing called Facebook, so that he could hear their version of things that happened that he had heard about but didn't have all the details on. It certainly made for better reading than just a list of ancestors in a family tree.
Most marketers focus on the content within their blog posts, but they forget about the titles and how important they are to capture the right attention with emotion and heart.
Here are some tips on how to write good blog titles to maximize readership of your blog post articles, where you have spent so much of your hard work, time, and effort.
Google searches based on keywords that you put in your titles. It's important to put the most relevant keyword, called the focus keyword, as close to the front of your title as...
If you know that your traffic is coming from LinkedIn, then you can measure the return on investment of the time and money you spend on that platform. The same goes for Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, and other links.
You can even measure the places on your website that get clicks and the places that don't. It helps to understand where traffic comes from, so you know where to place your efforts and how to organize your website.
A UTM code is a simple code that you can attach to a custom URL in order to track a source, medium, and campaign name. This enables Google Analytics to tell you where searchers came from as well as what campaign directed them to you, such as a Facebook ad, your Instagram profile, or your LinkedIn article.
Now don't be afraid of Google UTM Codes. They're simple to build by visiting this...
