Technology has been a game-changer for businesses, and the coaching industry is no exception. With the rise of remote work and digital technologies, more and more people are turning to online workshops to build their skills and improve their careers.
To be honest, I love meeting with people for lunches and coffee dates (even though I never get a coffee and always prefer juice or water haha)…
I love connecting on a deeper level and sharing stories time after time but that is not realistic.
With so much to do, you try to decide what meetings are the most important to take. Makes sense to get picky right?
If you are being too selective, you are pre-judging your prospects and your potential clients.
You are deciding who wants, needs, and can afford your products/services.
Sure.. doing so might save you some time but it is costing you millions.
You should meet with 100% of those who want to meet with you.
Before you think I lost my marbles and don’t have a relatable schedule remember this…
People don’t buy from businesses, they buy from people.
Therefore, you as a person need to be present and add value 24/7 in order to succeed.
OK… now that I have you sweating and texting your bestie about how annoying I am, let’s clear up one thing…
I never said you had to meet with them in person. 😉
Here is the thing…
No matter how good you are or even if you are Oprah or Taylor Swift, you just won’t close 100% of sales.
The process is the process. You have to go through some no’s so that you can approach a high value YES.
The problem is that if out of 100 coffee chats, only ten buy your $2,000 package… sure you just made $20,000 but it took 90 rejections and painful smiling to get there.
What if you were rejected by 90 people from your coffee chats and the last 10 were those ideal customers?
Would you make it past 10 or 20 people/rejections? Would you start thinking that those coffee dates are a waste of time?
Check out how my client made $2,000 on her first webinar:
But what if 100 people saw a video and only 10 bought. Much better right?
That is the equivalent of ONE coffee chat working for you over and over again. Suddenly the rejection of 90 people seems to almost not exist.
Unfortunately, due to a lack of strategy, a lot of people are trapped at their local coffee shop meeting with people endlessly because they feel they have no other choice and don’t have an automated system that helps them bring in thousands in sales.
You can finally enjoy networking again without all the pressure.
You can be authentic, genuine, and fully present as you scale your business.
Let me show you how to scale your business without burning out so that you can work smart, never go to a coffee chat unless you sincerely wanted to, and all without a big team!
I built this same system myself and it helped me attract clients in over 20 countries and most live nowhere near any coffee shops I have visited.
You can do this too.
You can be fully present and meet with everyone without holding back.
That means that you can add a ton of value whether people buy from you or not -thanks to this system and finally get back to overdelivering to your clients again.
Freedom isn’t free. Let me show you how I created mine- click here for the free class now. (Also you can see a perfect example of me practicing what I preach in this blog post all about how to leverage an online workshop for yourself)
As a coach, you can leverage this trend to grow your business and reach a wider audience.
In this blog post, we’ll explore how you can create and host a successful online workshop to take your coaching business to the next level.
Choose the Right Platform
The first step in hosting an online workshop is to choose the right platform. There are many options available, including Zoom, WebinarJam, and GoToWebinar, each with its own set of features and benefits.
Consider factors such as ease of use, audio and video quality, and security when selecting a platform. Also think about:
Reliability: Ensure the platform is stable, secure and has a good uptime record.
User-friendliness: Look for a platform that is easy to use and navigate, with a user-friendly interface.
Video and audio quality: Choose a platform that supports high-quality video and audio to ensure a seamless experience for participants.
Interactivity features: Look for features such as real-time chat, polls, and Q&A to keep participants engaged and interact with each other.
Scalability: Consider the platform’s ability to accommodate a large number of attendees, as well as its ability to handle traffic spikes.
Integration: Check if the platform integrates with other tools and platforms you already use, such as email marketing platforms or project management tools.
Pricing: Consider the platform’s pricing, including any additional features you may need and the cost of scaling up as your audience grows.
Overall, hosting an online workshop is a great way to leverage technology for a profitable coaching business.
By choosing the right platform, defining your target audience, creating compelling content, promoting your workshop, and hosting it professionally, you can reach a wider audience and grow your business.
