Ready to Move Your Marketing to the Next Level?

by Dave

An outside perspective can make a huge difference in your online marketing success.  Having a coach gives you the benefit of a marketing professional’s knowledge and experience.  You have access to expertise and how-to advice without a significant or long-term financial commitment. Like any coaching, as the relationship grows, you receive even greater value as I gain greater insight into your business and your needs.

Coaching SessionCoaching is ideal for individuals and small businesses who need help with their marketing but aren’t ready to tackle a major project.  All it requires is a commitment of a few hours a month.

How it works

Good coaching starts with a good relationship.  If there isn’t a “fit,” the coaching experience can be unproductive or uncomfortable.  To make sure that we will  have a valuable and productive partnership, I offer a complimentary coaching session.

Complimentary Coaching Session

A no-risk opportunity.  We schedule a mutual interview (yes, I want you to interview me too) to see if there is a good fit between us and to make sure I can help with your marketing goals.  It’s just like a first date – if we don’t “match” then we go our separate ways.  It’s free and there is no obligation.

Once we’ve started, we work on a month-to-month basis.  There are no long term commitments, though I do ask you to commit to the first two months so that we can fully assess your needs.  Each session we’ll meet to discuss your marketing and what’s most important to you and your business.

I recommend the schedule outlined below for your first month of coaching (we can tailor it to your unique needs).  We’ll both be doing “homework” prior to and after our sessions.  I’ll be planning and preparing for the next session and you’ll be gathering information, collecting data, or building elements of your marketing.

Your first month of coaching

It’s best to start the first month with at least two sessions.  It allows us to quickly build your coaching path and delivers value to you sooner rather than later.

Session 1

  • Your first homework is due – your marketing self-assessment (provided to you when you sign up)
  • Review your assessment and discuss your goals and objectives
  • Discuss issues and start your issue list
  • Start generating ideas and action items
  • Agree on the 2nd Homework assignment

Session 2

  • Review your homework
  • Discuss important issues and share feedback
  • Work on your ideas and action items
  • Prioritize items going forward
  • Set next session and homework

After the 1st month we decide how much coaching you need – 1, 2 or 3 sessions a month.  Each session is tailored to you and your business:

  • 45 minutes long
  • Review homework or topic
  • Discuss issues and action items on your list
  • Brainstorm new ideas and discuss issues
  • Set next session and homework

As always, I am working behind the scenes reviewing your “homework” assessing your progress and refining your coaching plan.

Email and calls

When you commit to coaching, I commit to you.  I am available throughout the month for quick calls and emailed questions.

Homework

While we’ve all passed through the homework stage of our lives, to achieve the maximum value from your coaching experience you will need to do some work outside the coaching sessions.  Homework or other items are due one day before our session so that I can have sufficient time to review your input and prepare for our discussion.
