So far we've talked about what business coaches do and how we can help you focus on a goal and achieve greater success in your business, how to find the right coach for you, and how to prepare for your first coaching session.In fact, we also suggest that you practice by being on the receiving end of some coaching as well. That's right. Part of our model is to have our students coach others. But we also give them opportunities to be coached. That allows them to experience the feeling of being asked questions and getting to use powerful tools.First find a coach who meets all your criteria such as experience, a step by step approach, someone who is available when you need help, etc., whatever qualities that you require in a technology coach. Now that you have found someone whom you think that you have confidence in, then it is time to discuss payment.Most people who are new to Internet marketing start their online business with great optimism and a burning desire to succeed. They have great hopes, big plans and huge dreams! But unfortunately, 80 % of them will never make a penny. In fact, 95% of them will close their Internet business in the first year. The reason is simple; they lack the necessary tools, knowledge, and motivation required to succeed.The vast difference between the mid '80s and today is the fact that technology has allowed coaches to be better prepared for their next game. This allows them to be more specific in their game plan and hopefully better able to coach. Being better prepared also allows a coach to teach this great game to the next generation of football players.Finding the right coaching fit is easy if you know what you're looking for. What is your personal style. There are many who will only define a coach as the person who has been credentialed. Although that's important keep in mind your own personal style of learning and finding someone who has experience in your coaching needs is also crucial. It's not just about the coach it about what you are willing to do and take action to make coaching work for you.Before you get started, you must know some important things. A website should be professional and easy to navigate. You run a professional business, so your website should have the same look and feel. As for navigation, fewer pages are better. No one wants to visit 10 different pages on your website before finally finding your contact information. Chances are, they will give up after the 5th and turn to a competing Network marketing coach.The bookings can be taken care of using an online calendar system, where you mark out the times you will be available or unavailable and the students can then book lessons in your available time slots. Handling financial transactions are a little trickier on the Internet, how do you pay, do you pay before or after the lesson, what happens if someone doesn't turn up for the lesson, what if someone is a fraud? We have developed an online platform that takes all these concerns away from the teacher and student and mitigates the majority of the potential frauds that can occur on the internet.You want defined outcomes that can be measured and that will produce sustainable results for you. I always begin my coaching engagements with a leadership and communication assessment, which I have found is vital to developing viable and measurable outcomes for the coaching engagement. You take the assessment online and it provides you with a snapshot of whom you are right now. It also provides key behavioral elements of how you are perceived as a leader and communicator.These are four of the many reasons why you should hire an internet marketing coach. When you start your business, more than likely you have a teacher or mentor that helps you a long the way. You have classes or trainings that you take so you can increase your knowledge. An internet marketing coach is like a teacher or mentor. They are there to help you grow your business using techniques that you never knew were possible.A Marketing coach can guide you to develop a marketing plan that resonates with your vision and values. Best of all, your coach will hold you accountable for implementing your plan and reaching your business objectives.When I'd visit some of the local coaching organizations I'd hear other coaches talking about not making more than a few hundred dollars a year, not charging more than a hundred dollars a month for hours of work, and some even laughing at the speaker who was telling them how to make hundreds of dollars per hour, and thousands per month easily. They just didn't believe that a coach, at least anyone in that group, could possibly make the kind of money that the speaker was telling them was possible. Sometimes their belief systems was keeping them from even trying those things, after all, they hadn't seen any of those results.When I ask coaches in my workshops how many new clients they get from their website the answer is frequently 1 in 10 months or so. Or if they are out there networking, it's probably a new client every few months.
