Effective marketing and selling of your coaching services starts with selecting and defining a target market that you are passionate about, developing a clear definition of the type of coaching services you provide, and articulating why you are the best solution to meet your potential clients’ needs. This is critical because when clients look for help, they don’t look for a coach. They look for a solution to solve a specific challenge they are facing. You will work on practical exercises to help you put a stake in the ground regarding how you define your coaching practice.
  • WHOM do you serve?
  • WHAT TYPE of coaching services do you provide?
  • WHY are you the best choice? And WHY should I believe you?
These are also some of the most important and hardest decisions because they require choosing the types of clients you want to attract the most. However, next time someone asks, “What do you do?” you’ll be ready. By clearly defining your coaching practice you will be more effective in:
  • Attracting the clients that are right for you and increasing the likelihood they will choose you for your coaching services.
  • Unifying and focusing your marketing efforts. Defining your coaching practice is the foundation for creating a consistent identity and voice across your marketing materials: your business card, website, social media, brochures, newsletters, blog, etc.
  • Increasing your value as an expert specializing in your clients’ needs.
