DAY 7: VALUE OF FREE GROUPS
KICKSTART DAY 7: VALUE OF FREE GROUPS
QUOTES OF THE DAY: "People won't care what you know, until they know that you care"
“Transformation in the world happens when people are healed
and start investing in other people.” ––Michael W. Smith
Relationships and establishing trust are two major factors in becoming an effective coach.
For some of you this may be something that comes easily, and for others this may lie far outside of your comfort zone.
A great way for people to get to know you is to offer them something they need/want that is of value & FREE. A way for them to "sample your goods" so to speak, and decide if working with you and investing their time and money with you is the best choice for them.
For this reason there are several ways that you can do this. One of my mentors Chalene Johnson calls this your Freemium and considers it part of the relationship building process, which is an essential part of being a great coach!
You might be thinking, well that sounds good but what would "I" do or give as a freemium or what kind of free groups could I offer???
Many Coaches find success with running FREE 5-day or 7-day Clean-Eating Challenges. You can easily do this on your own by using the CLEAN EATING HOW TO GUIDE I've created and linked below.
Other Coaches use the TurboFire® 5-Day Inferno Plan (found on BOD or in your COO). There are a lot of ideas on how to run these kinds of groups on Pinterest and Facebook, so look around and get some ideas that appeal to you! To learn how other Coaches do this watch this video on How to Add Value to Your Business with Challenge Groups.
Another choice could be a Grab Bag Fitness Group where they activate their Free 30 Days of BOD, and you put together a mixed bag of fun workouts for them to try that are available on Demand.
Other coaches have been successful with Money Budgeting Groups based of Dave Ramsey's Envelope System OR a PUSH Group based off of Chalene Johnson's 30 Day Push, which is all around setting and achieving goals.
All of these are ways for people outside of your warm market, and even those in your warm market to understand a bit more about you and your role as a coach.
A few things to consider....
Think about your target market. Who are you trying to help, and what are some of thier struggles? How can you help provide a solution to a problem?
What is something you struggled with that you now have a better understanding or grasp on that you can now teach?
What is something people commonly ask your advice about?
This is your time to flex your creative muscle and tap in to the needs of how you really want to help your people. Is it a mediation group, clean eating group, or a group that helps them with motivation?
Maybe it's not a group at all but an E-Book or a short series of videos hosted on You Tube. THIS IS YOUR BUSINESS AND THE SKY IS THE LIMIT!! Only you can decide.
MUST DOS FOR ALL FREE GROUPS!!...
Regardless of what type of free group you decide to lead, you need to ALWAYS have EVERYONE who enters fill out your FREE MEMBER ENROLLMENT LINK!!! NO one should ever come into your community without having designated you as their coach FIRST, and ALWAYS F.O.R.M them first. This protects you from having them use your community, support, and resources, and then order from a third party or another coach.
It also gives them ACCESS to try BOD free for 30 Days and have access to streaming workouts and meal planning tools that will help them get results.
