Are you struggling to get enough clients into your wellness coaching business?

In this episode, let’s talk about why you’re not getting enough coaching clients. 

Because if you’re not enrolling enough clients into your business, there’s a disconnect somewhere. A broken link in the chain. You need to figure out where the disconnect is happening, and then do what it takes to correct those issues.

This is the first of a 2-part episode series, where I take you through my troubleshooting list of 9 key reasons why you may not be getting all the clients you want.

In this episode we cover the first 4 reasons, and then next week, part 2, we’ll cover 5 more reasons.

For each problem, I’m going to explain why it happens, and then give you a diagnostic, as in: the clues to help you figure out if it’s what you’re doing, and then we’ll talk about how to fix it.

Here’s where you can tune in:

4 Reasons Why You’re Not Getting Enough Coaching Clients

So what we’re talking about is marketing for your coaching business, and specifically: why you’re not getting enough clients. 

Now, let’s say you’ve got your offer, your sales page, your promotional strategy … all your systems are in place, and you’re ready for people to enroll!

And … crickets.

What is going wrong?

Well, obviously there’s a disconnect somewhere. A broken link in the chain. And before you feel tempted to simply throw more money at the problem, or knee-jerk into a shiny new marketing strategy…it’s really important to run a diagnostic.

You want to figure out where the disconnect is happening, and then work to correct those issues.

As I always tell my clients: we need to look for the broken links in the chain. Where are things breaking down, and once we know that, then we can fix it. And like I say, this is something I help my clients work through, but we’re going to go through the same process right here on the podcast.

I have had a lot of clients come to me after they’ve been struggling away for a while, trying to get clients, and they just can’t figure out why not.

I hear them say things like: nobody wants to invest. People say they’re interested, but then they sort of disappear, I don’t hear from them again. I just can’t get them to say yes.

And so they feel tempted to give up totally, or they assume something is wrong with everyone out there, and they’re definitely losing heart, and feel like it’s hopeless. 

I have walked many, many clients through this process.

And I’m going to walk you through this exact process in today’s episode!

After you listen, I’d love to hear from you!
