Getting clients is where most coaches and consultants get stuck.
Hi! My name is Debbie LaChusa. I've been in business on my own, as a coach, consultant, trainer, and online teacher for more than 20 years. And, after creating three, 6-figure businesses, I've learned it's actually pretty simple to get clients. But what's simple is not always easy, or comfortable.
This course focuses on teaching you the 6 Basic Steps every coach or consultant needs to take if they want to get clients.
In my experience, after helping other coaches and consultants build their businesses for 20+ years, I've discovered that most coaches and consultants who are struggling to fill their business with clients are actually avoiding these steps.
Instead, they're spending their time and money on the wrong things, things they think they need to do, but that don’t directly bring them clients.
Are you an independent coach or consultant struggling to fill your practice with clients?
Maybe you too are avoiding these 6 steps.
Many coaches and consultants invest hundreds, and sometimes thousands, of dollars to set up their business, but still find themselves months, or even years later, without clients.
That's because they're focusing on the wrong activities.
They may have a really cool website, a beautiful logo, brochure, business cards, and maybe even a Facebook Page… in fact, they have all the marketing bells and whistles, but what they don’t have are clients.
There are lots of things you can keep yourself busy with when you have your own business.
But guess what? While those things may be fun to work on... while they may make it look like you have a business, the reality is without clients you don't have a business.
If your primary goal is to fill your coaching or consulting business with clients (and it should be!), then the 6 steps I teach in this course are the action items you need to focus on.
Everything else can wait.
Don't expect this course to teach you some obscure or complicated marketing or sales tactics to help you get clients.
Because that's not what it takes to get clients.
As I said, it's pretty simple, yet in my experience working with clients for more than 20 years, I found most were not doing these simple activities.
Instead, they were doing all the things they thought they were supposed to do.
I'm here to tell you those things don't matter when you're just starting out OR you're struggling to get clients.
So, if you need clients and you're ready to let go of what you're doing now and learn the down and dirty, basic steps you really need to take to get clients, this course is for you.
I'm going to teach you 6 steps you can take to start getting clients immediately.
I promise, if you take them, you will get clients.
What this course covers:
What most new, or struggling, coaches and consultants spend their time doing and why you shouldn’t be doing this.
What you should spending your time on if you want or need clients quickly.
What most coaches and consultants think they need to do before they can get clients and why it’s absolutely NOT necessary.
How the way most coaches and consultants start out in business actually delays them from getting paying clients .
Why getting clients should be your #1 priority.
The only things you need to do before you get your first client (it’s probably a lot less than you think).
3 simple things you can do this week (actually in a little as 3 days) so you can start getting clients next week.
3 simple things to do next week to get you clients immediately (it’s not hard but most people don’t do this… if you do you will get clients).
How working with free, practice clients can actually hurt your ability to get paying clients.
A checklist to help you determine whether or not you should start with free, practice clients (in some cases it does make sense, but you have to be careful).
A logo, business cards, and yes, even a website, aren't the priority.
When I started my consulting business back in 1998 I didn't have any of these things. And I'm a marketer, so it would have been a natural first step for me to create these marketing materials. But I knew these were not the things that were going to get me clients.
Additionally, I can tell you that with nearly every coach or consultant I've helped over the years, we've had to completely re-do all of the marketing materials they paid good money to have designed.
Why? Because they were off the mark. They didn't really understand who they were selling to, or how to package what they were selling, because they hadn't actually worked with anyone yet.
In fact, seeing this so many times is what prompted me to create this course.
You don't need to hire an expensive business coach or consultant to help you get clients. You just need to take these steps.
If you're serious about getting clients and you're willing to do what it takes, please join me in this class.
