Become a Life Coach in 3 Steps

Become a Life Coach in 3 Steps

Becoming a life coach is easy, but before you decide to make money by helping people you need to decide if a life coaching business is for you.

 

Most coaches start their coaching business part time (while still working in a full time position) this means to create a coaching business you have to balance your full time job and your new part time coaching business – if you feel you don’t have time to balance the two then you may want to put your coaching business on hold

 

You need little money to set up a coaching business. In the coaching business in a box package we explain how you need to put in more time then money as you need to create a website, (or pay someone to create you a website) niche your business and add relevant content. Before setting up your business are you committed to the time needed to make your coaching business a success

 

Are you committed to helping others? Unlike other business models setting up a coaching business needs a coach who is passionate about helping others. The more people you help the more word of mouth referrals you will receive. The coaching model is based around marketing you the coach, and the most passionate coaches help the most clients.

 

These 3 Steps, taken from The Coaching Business in a Box will help you create your own coaching business

 

101 coaching techniques

 

Step 1 Create a Niche Website

 

The first task is to choose a niche you want to coach people in. This could be:

  • Business coaching
  • Career coaching
  • Phobia coaching
  • Relationship coaching
  • Performance coaching

Next pick a niche within that niche. As an example if you want to be a “confidence coach” your niche within a niche may be “public speaking confidence coaching”

 

Creating a niche within a niche is key to coaching success. 1. This process helps you target your customers which increases referrals to starts 2. it allows Google to rank you appropriately

 

Next create a website designed for this niche – all content added to the website should explain, advice, and support people looking for a coach within this niche within a niche. This allows both your customers and Google to understand what your website is about – who the target audience is

 

Google will now rank you higher in the Google search rankings when people Google “confidence coach for public speaking”

Step 2 Market Your Service

 

With a niche website the second stage is to start to market your business. Coaches need to market online, as this is the first place potential customers search for a coach

Two ways to market online are FREE SEO or Paid Advertisements

The first free marketing strategy works well long term. You need to write hundreds of blog post for your own and other coaches websites relating to your niche. These post could be success stories, a how to guide or an explanation of a technique

Overtime Google will recognise your website as an authority in your niche within a niche, this means that Google will rank you higher when some Google’s a search term relating to your niche

Using paid advertisements allows you to rank on page one of search engines within 15 minutes.  Paid advertisements are the adverts you see at the top and top right hand side of a search engine. Every time a customer clicks on your advert you are charged a small fee.

The idea here, as discussed in the coaching business in a box, is to target the advert to put off none potential clients and to increase potential paying clients
