7 ways you can book your dream clients

Let’s dig straight into this week’s podcast episode where I share 7 ways you can book your dream clients. These are ways I use myself and share with my clients… the only way to make these really work is take action and implement them, let’s do this! Here are the highlights:

Create freebies that draw in your dream clients

I have so many freebies that help build my list, however a lot of them actually don’t draw my dream client. If we have one ideal client on our mind all the time when we create our freebies, it will benefit them and therefore draw them to taking action. If you create curiosity with your freebies, it will make it easier to serve them through your paid offerings.

Be prepared to enroll your dream clients

Have everything ready for your client. From the welcome email, to the payment systems to the on-boarding workflow. When you have a system it can allow your dream client to feel welcomed and valued.

Create a community where your dream clients can be with you

At the beginning, I didn’t feel comfortable in Facebook groups, however now I understand just how powerful they are. In my facebook group it is like a group of friends and that is what it’s meant to be like, I would encourage you to create one for your own business.

Speak the language of your dream clients

Whether it’s your website, emails or social media channels, it’s important that people feel a connection to you, which leads into trusting you. We are here to change lives and empower others and the best way we can do this is let me know they are not alone.

Give a tonne of value all the time

You are never giving too much free information. You don’t have to hold back on generosity. The important thing to learn is that you are teaching people what they need to do and why they need to do it in your freebies, and then the ‘how’ is in your offerings.

Always make people feel like they are being taken care of

From the first day a dream client comes in contact with you, until the last day, they should feel like you are just as present. Your clients will go through times of stress and confusion, your job is to be their for them through that process. This may look like check ins or 1:1’s you can integrate into your programs.

Create a VIP program that they can’t say no to

For me, I would live on someone's sales page, until I was ready to take the step and book a discovery call with them. When you look at your sales page are you speaking their language? Can your ideal client identify and relate to what you’re saying? Here is an example of my sales page

5 Mistakes I Made When I Started My Coaching Business

Today I'm sharing 5 mistakes that I made when I started my coaching business.

5 Mistakes I Made When I Started My Coaching Business

In this episode I share 5 mistakes I made when starting my coaching business. I am sharing these because I don’t want you to make them either! I don’t want these to hold you back, like they did for me, I want you to grow simply and strongly. Here are the episode highlights:

I wasn’t screening my discovery calls

For years, I gave people full access to my calendar… they got to choose what time and what day, I go more in depth with this in episode 1. As I continued my coaching business I also found that there are some people who admire you and they just want to talk to you to ‘pick your brain.’ So what do you when a potential client doesn’t seem like they are willing to invest? I don’t forget about them or delete their email, I serve them with some free resources I have in my business or options for next steps, and I find that as people are served in this way, later on down the track when they are ready to invest, to have a discovery call and become a client.

I didn’t have a well developed sales page

When I first started I didn’t even have a proper sales page to work with me 1:1 (woops!) It is so important to have a sales page that is more than a paragraph of information. It should reflect the care and attention you put into your dream clients.

I didn’t have boundaries around my calendar

If people want to work with you, they will find a way to fit into your schedule. Don’t fear that you will lose clients because of having boundaries, in fact I have found that creating boundaries around my time allows me to serve my clients and potential clients better.

I didn’t have an effective organic marketing strategy in place

I would schedule a blog post, hope that it would go viral and then everything will work (anyone else been there… or are currently there?!). Organic marketing is growing your list and following for free. It doesn’t matter how small or large your business is, an organic marketing strategy will save you big time!

I was trying to do #allthethings

I would always roll my eyes when people said I had to hire help. Then I started to find that there was so much value in hiring people and in return I got more time. I decided to create a list of everything I do in my business, large tasks and small tasks, and then I asked myself how much I liked doing that particular task and what my return would be if I hired someone else to do it. Remember: you can always make more money, you can’t make more time.

How to Start a Coaching Business When You Work a 9-5

This episode goes through 5 tips I recommend to all my students and clients who want to start a coaching business but are scared to leave their 9-5. It can be done, because I am living proof. These points are tried and tested in my own business. It’s time you do what you feel you are called to without the stress of time and money. Here are the episode highlights:

Know your niche

I’m sure you have heard this point before because nearly every podcast, blog post and successful entrepreneur has mentioned it, and that’s because it is important. The best thing you can do is start and identify one, you will find that as you continue to grow and evolve your niche, offerings and message will adjust also, and that is perfect.

Manage your time

When are you most effective? Are you a morning person or a night owl? Make sure that you block out certain hours of your time where you work best and that suits your life. I use to have my calendar wide open, and I found I wasn’t at my highest peak to help them, for example what if a potential client booked a call at 10 p.m. on Saturday night, for me I would struggle to put my best self into that call

Use programs and software that work for you

When you are just starting out, it’s okay to use free things. Choose the programs and software that will best move you forward. If a program isn’t working for you, find another option. If a program is too expensive right now, look for an alternative. If a software doesn’t make sense to you, it’s okay to look for a more basic option. As you grow and evolve so will your systems, programs and softwares.

Surround yourself with support

Running a business can be stressful if you let it, and negative people can add to that stress. When people aren’t supportive we have to ask why, most of the time it is because it is so unfamiliar to them that they feel uncomfortable. It’s okay to face opposition, but it’s important to remember that everything you do matters, so don’t allow anyone to tell you otherwise.

Work on your mindset daily

I had no clue what mindset was when I first started my business, however know I see just how important it is. My two favorite ways of working on my mindset are books and journaling.
