Your Life Coach Marketing Starter Kit

This short article isn’t going to sell you a coach marketing starter kit – it’s going to give you the basics on how to start your marketing plan for your coach business.

 

You can probably put together you own coach marketing starter kit by taking classes through an accredited coaching program, reading a few books on marketing, and perusing the Internet for some valuable information on the best way for a coach to get started with marketing and promotion.

But, if you want to buy a coach marketing starter kit after reading this, there are some good coaching programs that help you get your business going.

Your Coach Marketing Starter Kit Starts With Some Questions

Before you begin to market and promote your business, in fact, before you even start your coaching practice, you should ask yourself some questions. It’s even a good idea to write the questions down, read them, think about them carefully, and then write the answers down. It’s like giving yourself a test!

Here are some basic questions to ask yourself – questions that should be included with any coaching marketing starter kit:

  • Who do you want to be as a coach?
  • What kind of coach do you want to be?
  • What clients to you want to coach?
  • What impact do you want to have on these clients?
  • What benefits do you wish to receive from coaching?
  • Do you want to be a part-time or full-time coach?
  • Do you have the financial and time capabilities to start coaching full-time?
  • What outcomes can you offer clients?
  • What experience can you bring to the table?
  • What type of monthly/yearly income do you want to make?
  • Do you know how to use email and social media to promote your business?
  • What is the average fee you need to charge to reach your monthly/yearly income targets?
  • Are you willing to create additional products – books, DVDs, webinars, and more – to create additional streams of income?
  • Where do you see yourself as a coach in 5, 10, 15 years?

Seems like a long test, doesn’t it? Well, starting a business is a big deal, and you need to be prepared. It isn’t easy to get a business off the ground and running smoothly – the more you know about what you want, how you plan to get what you want, and what you can offer clients, the more likely your coaching business will be a success.

Coaching is Not a One-Size Fits All Business

Most businesses are not one-size fits all – business success depends on many factors. The first factor is you! You have to lay the groundwork for success by being prepared, knowing what it takes to start a business in your area, knowing who you are as a coach, and making sure you take care of all the legal and administrative issues before you open your door to clients.

The Necessary Evil of Marketing

Most people hate to market – they don’t like to cold call, hype their services, or hand their business card to everyone they meet. It would be nice if you could purchase a starter kit that did it all for you, but you’ll have to step up and do the work. To be successful in business, you must market!

The digital revolution has made marketing just a bit easier. Any good coach marketing starter kit would include the best ways to market through email and social media. You don’t have to cold call anyone – you just have to know how to use email and social media to your advantage.

A good coach marketing starter kit will assist coaches on all types of marketing, both traditional and online, and there are many to choose from:

  • Mailings/direct mail
  • Email newsletters
  • Website and article marketing to bring people to your website
  • Facebook ads/Google ads
  • Community groups – volunteering your services
  • Public speaking to community groups
  • Advertising in various media – radio, newspaper, TV.
  • Videos on YouTube
  • Offer seminars/webinars, online classes/sessions, and more.

Whether you buy a coaching program or make your own coach marketing starter kit, you need to know the best ways to set up and promote your coaching business. You can be the best coach in the world, but if you can’t attract clients, no one will ever know how good you really are!
