I see you, Health Coach. Trying so hard to build your business online.
Posting on Facebook daily, asking friends and family to join your free group, and trying to figure out ads.
Yet business seems to be moving at a snail’s pace.
And you may even be contemplating whether or not to continue with this business at all. It’s frustrating, to say the least.
Here’s the thing: with all the social media platforms available, instead of being social, we’re more disconnected than ever.
We’re all busy scrolling, scrolling, scrolling; bombarded with the same inspirational quotes, new year programs and annoying ads.
What I believe we’re all missing is human interaction; getting to know someone face to face.
Building an online business is not easy. It takes time to build a following and get the right strategies in place.
Trust me, I get it. I’ve been building an online business for several years. While I enjoy the freedom an online business allows, there’s one thing that I always did (and you should be doing) to get clients in the door faster.
Can you guess what it is?
Yep, easy peasy. Live talks are a great way to give you a boost of confidence, build the know, like, trust, factor, get in front of your target market and GET CLIENTS.
Whether you offer a free consultation or a paid program at the end of your talk, they’ll be more likely to buy from you.
Get them excited to learn, provide value and offer the solution to their problem!
To get you started, here’s a list of venue ideas where you can host a live talk:
- Coffee shop
- Juice shop
- Yoga studio
- Local gym
- Chiropractic office
- Women’s networking group
- Hair salon
- Local recreation center
- Non-profit organization
- Natural grocery store
And here’s a sample email to send to venues:
