Word Of Mouth Marketing For Your Business

Thursday, November 29th, 2007
 

Word of mouth marketing s very important for any service business owner. Word of mouth marketing occurs when your clients recommend your products and services to other people in your target market.

When many people recommend your products and services, more people are talking about you and your business and you get more clients as a result. Imagine your clients recommending you to people they know, and those people recommending you to the people they know, etc….

How To Use Article Directories

Monday, November 26th, 2007
 

You should use article directories (or article banks) to post your articles online. Write articles that are of interest to your target market and post them to article directories.

Why should you do that? The real value of posting articles to article directories is that when you post an article there, you also include your Resource Box, a paragraph about you and your business and a link back to your web site. Once your article gets posted to directories, so does the link back to your web site. Once you submit your article to article directories, you will have lots of additional links pointing back to your web site.

When people re-print your articles from the article directories sites you get lots of MORE places posting your articles and linking back to your web site. Now you have even more links back, all providing you with additional web site traffic.

All these links lead to you getting much more web site traffic and clients visiting your web site. And the best part is that there is no fee to use article directories. It is absolutely free to post your articles.

I consider article marketing (writing articles and posting them to the article banks) one of the best ways for life coaches, career coaches, business coaches and other coaches and solopreneurs to market themselves online, build a large list and get more clients.

I have created Article Marketing Home Study Guide that teaches you how to use article marketing to promote your business. It also includes a list of 40 article banks.

Create A Marketing Funnel

Monday, November 26th, 2007
 

Many coaching, consulting and other service professionals have told me that they have tried everything to get more one-on-one service clients. They have told me that they have gone to networking events, offered no charge consultations to prospects and joined lead groups. Some are even publishing newsletters, but their newsletters have also failed to bring in many service clients.

After analyzing what these service professionals are doing, I have found that many of them have just one offering — a single, expensive one-on-one service….

No Coaching Clients In December?

Friday, November 23rd, 2007
 

December is an interesting month for many coaches, consultants, virtual assistants, professionals organizers and other self-employed solopreneurs. This is because in December people have to spend a lot of money on gifts, so they are budgeting and looking for ways to decrease their spendings on other things. When they do this, they usually cancel the professional services they pay for, such as coaching, professional organizing, services of virtual assistants and more.

As December is approaching, I have been hearing from many coaches whose clients are taking a break in December. Coaches report that 20-50% of their clients are taking a break, thus the coaches are getting 20-50% less revenue in December.

So what do you do if you have no clients and plenty of time in December? Spend the time on creating a teleseminar or teleseminar series that you can teach in January!

In January plenty of people are going to be looking for support with their lifes and careers. Create a teleseminar around the problems your potential clients will be experiencing in January, and you will be able to have a very profitable January.

What kind of teleseminars can you create? Here are a few examples:

- A financial coach can create a teleseminar on how to pay off the holiday debts faster

- A fitness coach can create a teleseminar on how to get rid of those extra pounds that people gained eating food during the holidays

- A life coach can create a teleseminar on how to finally reach your new year resolutions

Start working on creating your teleseminar now, so that you can announce it in January!

Discover how to create, teach and market extremely profitable teleseminars with the Teleseminar Tutorial.

Wednesday, November 21st, 2007
 

Do you want to get more clients for your coaching business? Getting coaching clients is a goal of many coaches, but not all of them are able to bring more clients to their business. This is happening because many coaches are not following a plan for getting clients.

Instead of creating an effective plan, they just do random marketing once in a while. I knew a business owner once who marketed randomly. One day he heard from an expert that blogs are great for getting clients….

It also needs to turn your web site visitors into leads by giving them a no charge gift and asking them to subscribe to your newsletter.
