Coaching And Mentoring Versus No Coaching Or Mentoring

Which Option Should You Choose ? Should You Choose Coaching And Mentoring or Should You Go At It Alone ?

Coaching And MentoringWeighing these options can be the difference between achieving any success or failing in your business.

Most would go at it alone for one reason or another but what is the cost of you going at it alone and trying to figure it out on your own.

Here are some of the reasons most try to figure it out on their own when first starting a business:

  • Number one reason, Didn’t have the funds available to pay for coaching or mentoring. Until Now!
  • Another reason is, You could figure it out on your own. You know how to build your own website and sales funnels, lead funnels, your upsells/downsales and know exactly how to make 10K a month.
  • You don’t trust anyone to help you on building your business. You have to learn how to outsource some of the things you can let someone else do and particularly don’t enjoy doing. This will give you time to run the business.
  • You believe that in a few weeks or a month you will have all the answers and learning everything if you put in the extra hours everyday for at least six months or longer.
  • And finally, How hard can it be to have an online business up and running if you just pay someone to build it for you. If you have the funds to let someone else build the business for you then more power to you. This is the quickest way around the learning curve of learning the business and how to maximize profits.

Does any of this sound familiar to you ?

The fact is that I have been through all of the above and after years of trying to figure it out alone and failing in most of online business I overlooked one of the most important parts of achieving success online.

Here are some of the benefits of having coaching and mentoring:

  1. Number one reason, You will shortcut your way to a successful online business or any business for that matter.
  2. Number two reason, You will not be at it alone and will have someone with the knowledge and experience to guide you through your obstacles and questions that will arise when building a business.
  3. You will have a huge advantage over 97% of other businesses by having a coach and mentor.
  4. You will be able to set up your business properly the first time without wasting valuable time and wasting the little monee you have to invest in your business start up.
  5. You don’t have to take months or even years to figure out how to build a profitable business.
  6. You will also have the advantage of being able to scale your business as it continues to grow and take it to the next level.
  7. Finally, You will avoid the stress of trial and error and most importantly enjoy faster results with your business.

Coaching and mentoring is in most cases used as a lastCoaching resort with most business entrepreneurs and while there are many reasons most choose this option I have found that if you choose the latter it can take you years and in a lot of cases even make most people fail and quit.

This is the reason I personally recommend that anyone who aspires to start an online business or any business they get coaching and mentoring.

It will save you years of trial and error or wasting more money than if you don’t choose coaching and more importantly provide you with faster results.

The next hurdle is finding the right coaching and mentoring that will get you the right results your expecting from your business.

Another big factor in coaching or mentoring is the cost associated with it. Most of coaching or mentoring programs or systems can cost you hundreds or in most cases thousands of dollars to find experienced and knowledgeable coaches or mentors in any business niche.

2 Mistakes That can Kill Your Membership Program

Creating A Successful Membership WebsiteFor a membership program to be successful certain things need to be in place. There are things that can also cause your membership to fail. Let’s look at 2 common mistakes made that can kill your membership program.

Mistake #1 – There is not adequate momentum.
If you want your membership program to be a success you need to have momentum. This means you need to have tons of people that are eager to join.

The minimum number of people you should have ready to sign up is 50. Less than that and it’s not likely to work – your program is likely going to fizzle out. There are few people that will hang on to a dead forum where nothings happening. They want action, information, interesting advice, etc.

There should be at minimum of 10 posts a day happening on your membership site forum. That’s the minimum. You will notice if you can get your membership over a 100 that suddenly things come to life.

Mistake #2 – You start a membership site because you think your idea is good Bottom line – it doesn’t matter what you think is good. It matters whether others have an interest in what your membership site has to offer.

You should be applauded for having the enthusiasm to want to start a membership site, but before you put all of that effort into your idea, make sure what you think is a good idea is really what others are willing to pay to join.

When you start your membership site make sure thatmembers only you take the time to create a buzz before you start your program.

Let’s look at an example. Project 123, created by XYZ is that kind of project that is just begging to be part of a membership program. The place to start is by creating a on buzz on your blog, on Facebook and through other social media channels that builds momentum so that people simply can’t wait to sign up.

That’s two common mistakes that are often made that will cause your membership program to fail. There are plenty of others.

Before you take on a membership site make sure you take some time to research the best way to make your site a success. There are proven things that work and proven things that fail. Knowing this before you begin can reduce your chance of failure.

So, Why You Should Create a Membership Site ?

wishlist-WLM_250X250

If you’ve been thinking about creating a membership site, you should spend a little time to defining just why you should create a membership site and what the benefits will be to you. Let’s have a look at some of the main benefits.

#1 Membership sites provide and easy way for you to interact with your users. If your goal is to build a closed community of people that are committed, this is by far the best way to accomplish this.

Everyone involved has paid money to become involved so they tend to be more committed than those members associated with free communities or open communities.

#2 A membership site is easy to update. Sure, distributing your content or product in the form of an eBook isn’t as complicated, but it is much harder to keep current.

Once you have put it together and it’s out there – that’s pretty much what people get. After a few years, sometimes in a matter of a couple of months, the content is no longer relevant or even if it is relevant it becomes stale. With a membership site you can add, edit or even delete content just like you would with a blog.

#3 You can generate recurring income with your membership site. This is one of the most appealing aspects of a membership site. You can charge a monthly fee or an annual fee, or you can offer both. The more flexible you are the more members you’ll attract.

#4 You don’t need to have good design skills. If you are creating an eBook you need to have some great design skills.

Some people attempt to do their eBooks in PowerPoint if they don’t have the necessary design skills – they quickly learn just how bad of an idea this is.

PowerPoint is not designed for this type of project. When you have a membership site, except for your logo, you can do everything in a pre-made WordPress theme and keep the design minimize.

For many that simple factor makes the membership site the best option.

#5 Your product will continue to evolve and become better over time. The more user interaction allowed the more valuable the information on your site will become and the more information that will actually be created.

This is just five reasons why you should create a membership site. There are certainly others.

What Are The Keys To Success With An At Home Business ?

Keys To  SuccessWhen I talk to six and seven figure earners or doing masterminds the one question that always intrigues me is, What are the Keys To Success with your business ?

The the answer might surprise you but one thing is for sure, the answer is always the same.

There are many elements that are in place to achieve success with an at home business. And I would like to elaborate more on exactly what these are.

On the surface there are three parts you must have to succeed:

  1. You must have a product that people need and are looking for. This is where market research comes into play. First you must have a hungry market with a problem and then have or create a product to give to them the solution. Surprisingly enough, many people try to do it the other way around and it is one of the reasons why they fail. 
  2. As mentioned above, You need a Market looking for your product! For example: If you want to catch Salmon you don’t go to the middle of the ocean and throw a net and hope to catch Salmon. No,You go to a river or stream where the Salmons are and then you will have a much better chance of catching some Salmon. In other words you need to know where your market is and what are they looking for.
  3. Now that you have a product and know who your market is you need a way to catch the Salmon, Right ? Now you need traffic to buy your products. This is the number one reason 95% of entrepreneurs fail with an at home business. You need to have a proven marketing strategy that not only gets people to buy your product but do it in a cost effective manner. If it costs you $1.00 to get a customer then you need to be making hopefully $2.00 or more to continue doing business.

The keys to success are having all of these pieces of the puzzle in place but also the true keys to success is having a complete system that streamlines the process for you so you can work more efficiently and more productively.

What do I mean by a system ?

Lead Funnel System

All successful entrepreneurs have a lead funnel system like:

  • Having a website to funnel your prospects and convert them into buyers for you. If your doing affiliate marketing than you need a capture page to collect people’s information so you don’t have to pay for marketing two times for the same customer.
  • You need an effective lead sales funnel which once your prospect or customer enters their email details they are forwarded automatically to the sales page to monetize your leads into sales and if they don’t buy the first time the system can follow up with them to convert them into sales further in the process.
  • You need a follow up system to collect email information. Let me give you an example: When the Temper.pudic mattress came out they collected the email information to stay in touch with their potential customers and many did not buy the first time they received their DVD and Sample in the mail but because they collected their email information they stayed in touch with prospects and some bought even a year or later after their initial contact with them. Emails are free after initially capturing their information.
  • You also need a payment processing system if you have your own product. If you are doing affiliate marketing than this is done for you by the product owner.

Remember at the beginning I said, That all successful entrepreneurs keys to success with their at home business were the same!

Motivation
