How do successful coaches market themselves today? What are the most effective tools and how do you use them?

In this episode, we talk with coaching industry leader, Marc Mawhinney, as he shares how he built a successful coaching business, and  a thriving Facebook community of over 12,000 coaches in less than 2 years (with no paid ads). Marc is the host of the Natural Born Coaches Podcast, and the creator of The Coaching Jungle and his exclusive print newsletter, the Secret Coach Club. He was our first guest on the Leaders Of Transformation Podcast (See Episode #001) and today he gives us an update on his entrepreneurial rise along with valuable insights for coaches looking to grow their business.   

During our chat, Marc candidly recounts some of his backstory – the business failures that lead to his reinvention and the struggles along the way. He encourages coaches to compress the learning curve and dive in if you want to be successful. And if you’re going through a rough time, look for the silver lining because there is always one there.

We unpack the top 3 marketing strategies Marc uses to grow his business, how to use Facebook groups to build relationships and gain clients, why free advice doesn’t work, and why you need to evaluate your rates every 6 months. Don’t let the naysayers discourage or limit you – know your value, follow what works and focus on being the best you that you can be.

Key Takeaways

  1. You’re not too late to the game. There’s never a perfect time – just start now.
  2. Have a daily something to stay in touch with your audience – podcast, email, FB live, etc. Something you enjoy that gets you results.
  3. Email marketing tip – don’t be boring, take the filter off and be you.
  4. Some people are going to be offended by what you say, so get used to it.
  5. Pointers for building a successful Facebook group:
  • Post 3-4 times a day
  • If you’re the group owner, and you’re not active in the group, why should anyone else be active?
  • Ask a lot of questions
  • Do polls – Facebook groups are the best free market research you could have
  • Use it to build relationships, rapport, and gain new clients and email subscribers
  1. In building your marketing strategy, focus on doing a few things well. The three that Marc has chosen to focus on are (1) podcasting (2) daily email, and (3) his Facebook group.
  2. Don’t give your coaching away for free. People don’t value what they get for free.
  3. Evaluate your fees every 6 months. Charging more for your coaching will make you a better coach.
