This time, it’s up to you to show yourself that you’re for real. If you want a new client, go get one in 20 minutes. Read this article in 10 minutes, and use it to your advantage in the next 10 minutes.
We’re going to show you how to get a new client from social media or email, so pick your poison, coach:
- The 9-word email
- Facebook Groups
Fun fact, coach. There are lots of leads in your area literally tweeting about how they want to train with a professional. Do you need a new client? And if the two coincidences align just right: seriously, here’s how to find them.
First, Log into Twitter with your account. Head into the search bar and type “need personal trainer” or “need PT”, maybe “need personal coach” and search for those terms. There is a “More Options” tab at the top of the search results. Click that. Select “Near you“. That results in a cluster of leads that you can start talking to right away.
The 9-word Email
A superstar marketer named Dead Jackson has devised a simple, to-the-point and incredibly effective 9-word email template to land deals.
It goes like this:
Are you still looking to [YOUR SERVICE]?
That’s it. Add your phrase to say what you offer, and hit send. It doesn’t matter if you have a small, even existent (!) or a full grown mega-beast mailing list already. Also, if you already keep in touch with the recipients or are not in touch overall, you can send this type of email. And in response to anyone who answers you, just answer with:
That’s great. I’d love to help you out.
Let’s have a quick chat about your goals and put a little plan together on Skype or in person over a cup of coffee.
I’m available at (1), (2), (3) time – let me know which fits best.
Some people will get into a conversation with you afterwards, so bear in mind that you will need to address some questions and redirect some to the in-person meeting. Ensure that you take note of what they have said and respond accordingly.
Some people will reply telling you they are working with XYZ the Personal Coach and he is great. Don’t make an offer to these people, just congratulate them on taking action and offer your best wishes.
Use your judgement for who is appropriate to make an offer to and who is not.
Once you get a “date”, just run a simple consultation. Talk about their goals, offer your prescription and all the goodies we handled in our last week’s post. Boom, new client.
The all time consistently great source of good connections and leads. Still, you need to consider the fine line between being labeled a spammer and actually helpful. A few steps divide you and new clients from Facebook Groups:
- Find local groups near your location. Groups related to your interests will likely be full of your potential clients.
- Once you’re accepted in a group, use the search bar (like in Twitter), just search for more general info like “Personal coach” or “fat loss”
- Scan the results for questions you can answer. Being helpful is a top priority.
- If you have your own page, and a link that can help answer the question, paste it to get loads of targeted visitors.
That’s all there is to it. Head over to the social media of choice or to you email client and see if we’re full of it or actually want to show you that you can do so much more than you ever thought. That all plus Mogy, you are in the saddle for a boost in your business you could have never imagined.
