And 4 tips to craft a compelling Message for your Coaching Business
Congratulations on your recent coaching certification! You are now a newly Certified Coach and well on your way to building a successful coaching business. But did you sit down to think about what kind of people you want to work with? What are their values, their attitude, and their approach?
Your message is the foundation of your business. It is what will attract potential clients and convince them to work with you. If your message is unclear or confusing, you will have a hard time building a successful business or will attract people who will make you doubt if you’re good enough.
We teach about it in our CoachUP for Coaches Programme and you can explore it further on the dedicated page.
Here are a few reasons why a crystal clear message is important even for a Newly Certified Coach just starting:
- It helps you attract your ideal clients. When you have a clear message about what you do and who you help, you can attract potential clients who you love working with.
- It helps you differentiate yourself from other coaches. The market is full of coaches, so finding a way to stand out from the competition is important. Showing up fully and communicating who you are can help you differentiate yourself and show potential clients why they should choose you.
- It helps you build trust and credibility. When potential clients can see that you have a clear and well-defined message, they will feel seen and understood, hence trusting that you know what you’re talking about.
So, how do you develop a crystal-clear message for your Coaching Business? Here are a few tips:
- Start by defining your target audience. Who will benefit the most from your coaching? What values should they possess? Who do you love working with?
- Identify your unique selling proposition (USP). What makes you different from other coaches? What value do you offer your clients? You being you is the core of the message.
- Be clear and concise. Your message should be easy to understand and remember. Less is more.
- Be authentic. Your message should reflect your personality and coaching style. Be proudly you.
Once you have developed your message, make sure to use it consistently in all of your marketing materials and online presence. This will help to create a strong brand identity and make it easier for potential clients to find and learn more about you.
Here is an example of a clear and concise message from our own co-founder Tijana (check her profile):
I empower Executives go from good to GREAT by doing LESS and LEADING more.
This message is clear and concise, and it identifies the target audience (Executives) and the USP (doing less and leading more). It is also authentic and reflects Tijana’s personality and coaching style.
If you are a newly certified coach, we encourage you to take some time to develop your crystal clear message. It is one of the most important things you can do to build a successful coaching business. And if you don’t want to do it alone, we are here for you. Check out our CoachUP Programme.
