Do you want to grow your coaching business?
Networking is undoubtedly one of the most important aspects of your marketing strategy. Studies show that for 78% of startups, networking is crucial to entrepreneurial success.
Networking can be a time-consuming activity that may require you to travel in and out of your city of residence. In fact, Shepa Learning has come up with a comprehensive list of 100 top places to network which includes:
- TEDx events
- University functions
- Civic organisation events
- Professional development organisations
- Sporting events
- And much more.
It doesn’t take a genius to figure out that as a coach running a business, you’ll probably need a few well-thought-out strategies to help you manage everything and give you the time you need to network and win new clients.
So, just what are some of these vital strategies?
1. Hire the right people to help you win more clients
You are only as strong as your team. If you hire right, you’ll only need to hire once. The right online business management team can make all the difference in how much time you have to put into networking and marketing the business.
Our vast experience working with clients across different industries and niches has given us a competitive edge. We know how to operate business systems which allow you the freedom to go off and network in order to grow the business.
One of the fundamental reasons coaching businesses close up shop is because they don’t have an efficient back-end team to handle client logistics. When you hire JMJ, you get to work with a solutions architect with 35 years’ worth of industry experience.
2. Streamline operations and systems
There is no denying the fact that a streamlined business improves operational efficiency. Streamlining your systems ensures a high standard of daily operations and customer care. That’s not all, however.
Streamlining business processes helps you save time. And as we all know, time is one of the most precious commodities in business. By streamlining your business’ operations through the integration of our diary management systems and client management processes you’ll be able to free yourself up to attend more networking events, win more clients and improve life.
3. Invest in a good team
According to a digital report published by PriceWaterhouseCoopers, 75% of Australian consumers agree that the service they receive from a company determines whether they will do business (or not) with that company. It is interesting to also note that people are actually willing to pay premium prices for excellent customer service. What does this mean for you as a coach?
You must invest in time and money into a team who can handle all the back of house operations. Outsourcing the stuff you don’t want to do, or have to do to a professional online business manager that can make appointments, manage your diary, and manage the sales process you have for winning more business is vital to your business survival.
4. Plan the time you need
Allocate time every week to create a to-do list for each of the five major areas of your life – Business, Health, Finance, Spiritual and Family. Write down everything you need to do in each of these areas. This gives you an idea of how much time you actually have in your coming week to work on your business and travel to network.
You may be surprised to discover that you don’t actually have a lot of time every day to do all that you need to do. Putting everything down on paper allows you the opportunity to see exactly what can be delegated to others, and what you yourself will work on.
The better you get at time management, the more you’ll be able to do each week. It might be time to learn how to Stop Doing The Stuff You Don’t Need To Do In Your Coaching Business.
