Should I sell facebook group coaching as a beginner?

8 replies
Hey guys, this is my first post on here. I've lurked on here for a while now and I just decided to make an account. Anyway, I was thinking of getting started in the IM world by sending paid traffic to an optin and then offering them coaching in a private facebook group. I would then follow up with my list and do standard email marketing (build a relationship, offer value, etc.). Do you think this is a good business plan, or should I sell affiliate products instead? My goal would be to create my own membership site once I am making a full time income from the facebook coaching, since I know that doing coaching for a low price is not a scalable business. Any tips or advice would be awesome.

    Coaching people to lose weight online could work I guess if you are skilled in this area...if you are a coach.

    But when most people want to lose weight, what do they do?

    Most just go to the gym.

    But if you are willing to do the work on learning how to market online...traffic,leads , list etc, then you could always sell weight loss products.

    Have you already had success in this niche/area? Are you considered an expert or authority? If yes then sure why not but this could be a tough sell.

    You can absolutely make a full time living with a coaching/consulting business on or offline that IS scalable. Don't ever let anyone tell you different. If you are knowledgeable in any field or niche, it doesn't really matter then subject matter ...

    ..if there is at least some type or form of desperation in there where you can solve a problem, or offer practical or conceptual any way shape or form.. you have a scalable business...

    ..Everything is just choreography client retention, time management, reputation, etc..

    ...It doesn't matter that you are beginner to make a ful time living from coaching and consulting, I talk with the crew about this all the time...

    ...You just need to learn how to manage expectation and keep it completely real with yourself, & why compete on price? When you compete on price you ultimately only have one option - Be the Cheapest. Are you cheap? I wouldn't believe you think that.. so don't do it. If you are offering actual, legitimate, quality advice/value to a specific market who are willing to pay premium prices , why not scale up from the beginning?...

    ...Do Affiliate Marketing too! I suggest doing everything! But see these plans all the way through. There is a TON of advice on the Warrior Forum when it comes to Affiliate Marketing. But anytime I see mis guided information getting out there about the coaching/consulting business...

    ...It makes the hair on my skin raise.

    Anybody can do it, credentials, letters after your name, experience etc does not matter to make 30 grand a month coaching. All you have to do is just do it.

    -Hope this helps anyways brother!

    You're going into a tough niche, but that means it's lucrative.

    I'll tell you how to make it less competitive without missing out on sales, in a second.

    But if you know your stuff, if you know how to get people the results they want, then absolutely jump in and make a start.

    Anyway, if you want to cut out some of the competition, drill down into the niche a little bit.

    Cut the market in half, and then cut it again.

    The quickest way to do that is by choosing one gender to target - not both.

    Cut things down again by choosing to solve a specific issue.

    So maybe instead of selling a 'weight loss' product, you're now selling a 'fit into your wedding dress' product.

    We usually sell more stuff when we become more specific about who we're speaking to.

    Michael Meaney nailed it.

    He did miss one thing, though.

    Take the "fit into your wedding dress" example. That works well for brides to be, and is a great example of why focusing on one gender is an excellent idea. Where he missed was not mentioning that the same general expertise could be used in a separate group for grooms to be. And another one for new mothers looking to get their figures back. Or guys wanting to play a full round of golf without huffing and puffing and sweating like a pig (curious expression, as pigs don't sweat).

    You can target different smaller niches within a larger market without needing different core knowledge for each. All it takes is fine tuning to fit the language and any special needs to a given group.
