You're starting your coaching business? Good for you! You’re in for an incredible experience. Not only that, but you’ll grow your list, make some money, show of your expertise, and even make some important connections with other coaches in your niche.

But you can’t do any of that if you’re making these rookie mistakes.

Not getting out of your comfort zone

Being the owner of a coaching buisness, you don’t get to fade into the background. Make a commitment to put yourself out there, not only when it comes to promoting your biz, but also when inviting people to join you and telling your story. Reach for the stars, and don’t be afraid to approach your “dream” client. You never know who might just say yes.

Not asking your people

No single webpage should be published, and no email sent without a thorough testing of everything, including:

·         Buttons—are they clickable and do they lead where you think they do?

·         Links—watch for broken links, placeholders and 404 errors.

·         Spelling and grammar—proofread everything, including the names of your presenters.

·         Upsell/downsell funnels—make sure products are buyable and easy to access.

·         Content delivery pages—do your videos and downloads work?

·         Guest offers—opt-in for all of your guests’ free offers to be sure they work as expected.

Timers and coupons (if you’re using them)
