I'm a psychological personality type enthusiast with passion to help people through knowing their unconscious behaviour and turning it into conscious decisions. I'm an unfinished business and management bachelor who found "his way" in helping people through getting to know themselves and others better in order to be able to take conscious and responsibile decisions for their lifes. To help them uncover their barriers and help them overcome them.
Also I'm a passionate young man with strong urge to help the world evolve the "right" way through helping people. I'm a finishing student who wants to fight his way through the sharp business world and bring and spread life values and humanity to it.
Best way? Figure out a process to get consistent referrals from other professionals.
I made a video about this situation, in the video blog here:
Second-best way? Narrow your ideal customer definition, and go get them.
Who values uncovering their unconscious behavior and changing them to conscious decisions? Who values that?
Not many people, IMO. But I do know one niche that does: some high level executives. They know mindset is #1 in determining their results.
The good news here? They know the value of doing so, and will pay for it. Unlike the regular public, who love 'free' and struggle to pay for anything because they don't have any money nor a belief that investing in themselves is important, your executives will 'get it'. In fact, I'd niche down even more, to executives in a certain industry who are making so much a year.
Talk less about you and more about the situation your ideal customer is in. That's your marketing. Most sellers do it completely backwards.
I know that's what you are passionate about, but you need to create a message that resonates with your clients.
Meaning how is this going to help them solve some major problems in their lives? (Financial, relational, spiritual, or physical)
So many coaches struggle to even make minimum wage because they sell what they want to sell (they project their own values on to their clients) instead of selling what people actually want to buy.
Setup a single page Website with info about how to contact you + use some booking service or free WordPress plugin for managing your appointment bookings.
Attend at least one Meetup Group in your local area every day for a year... or week if you like...
Target small business networking Meetups which begin events with short introductions.
Provide a benefit centric intro, rather than 12 Step Intro.
1) Make your intro other-centric, rather than self-centric, so avoid "My name is John, I coach people."
2) Be specific.
If you're having trouble writing copy which generates massive sales, setup an appointment with me + we'll refine your languaging/message.
Then sit down. Don't say your name. Don't have biz cards. Avoid carrying any type of contact info.
People who are truly interested in what ever you choose as your intro (which should be crafted to the Meetup you're attending) will come find you.
Have them write down your contact info on a scrape of paper.
Never, ever, ever, write anything down for anyone.
Never give them a pen or paper.
Their first micro actions with you will be to seek you out + scribble down your contact info.
People who take micro actions, tend to make macro actions (pay you).
