I had an agent email me this morning and say angrily that all I keep talking about is marketing and technology. He said I knew nothing about real estate or marketing and that I was an idiot. I asked him how he heard about us. Angrily he said he was reading our blog. And I’m the idiot. Marketing is everything!
Have you ever heard the saying “The money is in the list?” A large, responsive, email list is the mainstay of any online business. A good Internet marketing coach will help you develop your email list and show you how to leverage it for maximum results.
We can be so taken with the idea of getting out there to help people. Our heart can race at the thought of making an impact on the world around us! And yes… we can get so excited about the idea of the limitless income that can come from being a successful life coach.
Over the next year I learned from several people who each had a specialty area. It was important for me to see that someone who had only been online for a couple of years could be so successful. I learned everything I could and then started my own mentor program. That was in 2007, and I continue to teach people who are new to online marketing, newbies, how to build their online empire.
There are a lot of people out there who are making less than $150 a month and think they’ll be able to make a full time income working at home. They feel like by buying more and more books and downloading lots of e-books is going to help them when they should actually take the advice from someone who is already making a lot of money online.
Get the support you need. We’re usually too close to our business to view it objectively and recognize what opportunities are right in front of us. So, reach out for the support of a marketing coach or consultant to review your plan, give you insight on what strategies best suit your goals, and to give you the motivation you need to move forward. Even if you hire the coach for just one session, it will help you to get moving on the right path.
In fact, we also suggest that you practice by being on the receiving end of some coaching as well. That’s right. Part of our model is to have our students coach others. But we also give them opportunities to be technology coach. That allows them to experience the feeling of being asked questions and getting to use powerful tools.
You want to take responsibility for the growth of your company. You know you’re capable technology coach of anything when you have the tools and the resources. Sure, you can most likely grow your small business you just don’t know where to begin. Hiring a marketing specialist to guide you will help you take responsibility for the growth of your company.
You have to choose a technology Coach who has the right experience and training in your field and goals. There’s no point in hiring a coach with experience in hotel management if you need help running a software development company.
Many online business coaches talk a big game, but when it comes to actually showing you what to do and how to do it, they get lost. They can speak from a theoretical point of view, but since they have never started an online business from scratch, they don’t know the nitty-gritty details. Stay away from this type of coach – they can’t help you.
When you start seeing success, you will be reassured that coaching is really the way to go. With the help of a coach, you will really see a big difference and even you will also get better; you will have a role model; you will be a continuous improvement and you will be learning at the feet of a master.
A few of the things a marketing coach can help you with is writing a bio, tagline and back cover synopsis that reflects the strength of your writing and doesn’t hide the key talking points behind unnecessary words. Just like new reporters are admonished to never bury the lead.
Someone who isn’t so eager to take you on. Time is precious and a good coach knows that her time is also limited. She’s not willing to take on any and everyone. A good coach chooses his clients by assessing whether or not the person is technology coach, not by determining how much money he can make.
Having a network marketing coach can give us proficiency. A mentor fills in the gaps of our ignorance. In mastering any new task, an experienced mentor can simplify the process, guide us through the complicated parts, help us avoid the pitfalls, and warn us about the dangers. A coach helps us avoid the school of hard knocks-the most expensive kind of education in terms of time, money, and emotional pain. A coach gives us a shortcut.
The myth is that “by selling to the world there are a lot more clients out there” than when you narrow down to a very specific target market. But that is SOOOOO WRONG, So VERY WRONG. If you’ve been out there selling for any length of time and it hasn’t been working, at least give it a try. I’d rather be selling 50% of those I meet with in a specific market because they hear the marketing message that seriously connects them to the measurable results I deliver to THAT market than to get one client every few months because my message is weakened to target THE WORLD.
