This Sales Strategy Blows Away Pain-Focused Selling

To get our prospects eager to buy from us, we need to stretch the gap between their desired result and their current reality. What exactly does that mean?

Stretching the gap involves three main steps. We need to identify:

  • Where our prospects want to be
  • Where they are right now
  • What’s standing in their way.

So, the first step is to get them really clear about where they want to go.

This Missing Piece of Your Sales Process Is Costing You Thousands

Your marketing is starting to pay off, and what was once a prospect is now a solid lead. Before you know it, you’re in the sales meeting, pitching your coaching program.

There are hundreds of strategies out there that claim to “guarantee the sale,” but I’ve found there’s one strategy that stands out above the rest.

I call it stretching the gap, and I believe it’s an absolutely essential part of the sales process.

What To Do When Prospects Don’t Understand Your Coaching Program

How many words is a picture worth, again? I can’t seem to remember.

I honestly don’t know what’s more annoying: hearing that overused phrase one more time, or knowing I constantly need to be reminded of the wisdom in it.

We are all visual people — some of us more so than others, but the fact remains. We know how powerful pictures can be.

Why is it, then, that we become completely blind to this truth when developing our coaching models?

The Secret To Getting Coaching Prospects To Commit

There’s something you should know before you take another step forward with your marketing: Your prospects don’t give a damn about you or your business.

They don’t care who you are, what you’ve done, or how well your coaching business is going… at first, anyways.

When you first reach out to clients, they care about themselves and their problems. That’s it.

The only way we can hope to break through is to empathize with them and connect with their cravings so they feel like we see them better than anyone else in the world.

How To Become The Answer To Your Coaching Clients Needs

For a coaching model to be successful, it must meet the needs of four key stakeholders.

It must work for you, your prospects, your clients, and the coaching business as a whole. Without meeting the needs of all four, you’ll inevitably run into serious problems.

In the last post, we talked about meeting your needs before we take care of our prospects or clients.

Now we’ll take a look at meeting our prospects’ needs.

How To Get Great Testimonials

I woke up this morning and there’s a question inside our Black Belt Facebook group asking about what is the best way to get really amazing live event testimonials.

And there’s a question in there about what’s the best question to ask to get really great testimonials for a live event.

The problem with running a live event is,  people,  got to book a time, go to travel, go to book you a flight and accommodation.

The Best Offer For Your Webinar

 A great client of mine, Vanessa, once asked, “How do I know what’s the best next step to invite people at the end of the webinar. Do I sell my product? Do I sell a session? Do I sell a big product? What’s the best offer?”

The answer is actually easier than you think.

It’s really simple. I go by price point. This is a rule of thumb, so it can be broken.

The 3 CTA’s Your Site Needs

3 Offers You Need To Have

We’ve just been chatting about websites and we’re talking about the 3 core offers you need to have on your website. But really you need three offers, a green offer, an orange offer and a red offer. And as what we’ve discussed, there are three types of people that go on your website, these are the cold leads, warm leads and hot prospects.

Green Offer

Cold leads are skeptical visitors and what we want to have for them is a green offer.

How To Get Rid of Low Grade Coaching Clients Once and For All

Coaches often fail at converting prospects to clients because of one simple aspect of the sales process: They’re not in control.

When you’re at the mercy of your prospect’s hiring criteria, they control the buying process.

To shift the control, you need to be one to set the buying criteria.

Stack The Deck In Your Favor

The first step is to identify and push hot buttons. We recently went into depth about it here.

Trouble Closing Clients? Look at Your Lead Conversion Process

Converting prospects into clients can be the most challenging part of the business for many coaches.

They may know exactly who their target market is, what their problems are, and where to find them. They might even know their prospects by name.

For these coaches, it’s not lead generation that’s the biggest challenge – it’s lead conversion.

When coaches struggle with conversion, the problems usually come up in the sales appointment.
