How to Coach Online - Announcing 5 Methods to Supercharge Your Online Coaching
People from all walks of life (career changing professionals, housewives, executives, small business owners, online marketers, graphic artists, etc.
) are hiring personal coaches to help them in identifying their strengths and weaknesses and to get that much-needed push in order to succeed in their chosen field.
Although most coaching programs take place over the phone, the entire process can now be worked online which is much cheaper and more convenient for all parties involved.
Here's how you can supercharge your online coaching: 1.
Establish your credibility online.
People usually pick coaches base on recommendations.
If you want your current customers to refer you to their friends and family members, you need to make sure that you impress these people all throughout the coaching process.
Offer them with every piece of information that they need to make sure that you'll take them to where they want to be.
Know your audience.
Every person is different.
What may work for your other trainees might not work for others.
In order to determine the type of coaching strategies that you are going to use and the kind of information that you are going to share, make sure that you know your target market inside out.
You need to know their levels of comprehension, their attention span, their skill levels, their profiles, their preferences, etc.
Create an online portfolio.
If you are just starting in this field and you've got no one to recommend you to other people yet, I suggest that you create a compelling and impressive online portfolio that your prospects can refer to.
Build a blog that contains a sample of your coaching programs and share your expertise by writing and publishing several relevant articles online.
Offer additional services.
As the competition in the online arena is getting stiffer by the minute, make sure that you strive to set your coaching programs apart from the rest.
Incorporate interactive video tutorials, offer follow-up sessions via phone, or launch webinars that contain more information that your clients will surely appreciate.
Keep it simple.
Strive to make your content easy to understand by using the simplest terms as much as possible.
If you are offering email coaching, make sure that you write your content using subheadings and bullet list.
Keep your sentences short and your paragraphs shorter.
Also, define all the complicated terms first before you use them on your content to promote better understanding.
